The Alfond Inn’s restaurant and lounge have a name!
Since the early days of Winter Park, informal and family dining takes place in the kitchen. Our guests will experience the sights, sounds and aromas of food preparation as they enter. Early 1900’s design elements such as a hearth-inspired kitchen window, exposed beams, farmer’s table, and Dutch oak floors provide the backdrop. The setting is purposefully void of stylized elements and focuses on strong natural materials. Like the name, the interior is a thoughtful combination of old and new.
The Hamilton’s Kitchen menu features current farm to table practices, respecting nature’s sustainable indigenous products, freshly presented with modern culinary techniques. “Hamilton’s Kitchen” is a welcoming place, perhaps even familiar, where ideas can be exchanged and friendships can be shared over food and drink…..
The Alfond Inn’s restaurant and lounge, Hamilton’s Kitchen, is named in honor of Hamilton Holt, the innovative 8th President of Rollins College. The restaurant will feature exposed beams, a farmer’s table, and Dutch oak floors as the backdrop for traditional Southern cooking at breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. From Seafood & Conch Chowder to Pan Roasted Dorado and a Grilled Natural Beef Burger, Hamilton’s Kitchen will embrace locally sourced ingredients, celebrating the rich history of local agriculture, including citrus, strawberries, corn, tomatoes, beef and gulf seafood. A private dining room, accommodating from 12 to 36 guests, will also be available.
