At Primo in the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes, the refeshing layout—open kitchen, rustic-colored walls, intimate but spaced tables—underscores co-owner and executive chef Melissa Kelly's style of “simplicity, seasonality and freshness.” Produce and herbs are brought from the Primo organic garden to inspire Chef de Cuisine Juan Martinez's daily-changing Italian menu. Delicious dishes may include bread and fish soup with garden leeks and fresh oregano swirled with rouille, followed by desserts like fennel gelato and almond croccante. Primo also offers valet parking and online reservations.
