Siro: Urban Italian Kitchen Receives Florida Trend's 2013 Golden Spoon Award

Deeming It the Best New Restaurant in Central Florida

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - Siro: Urban Italian Kitchen at Orlando World Center Marriott has been recognized by Florida Trend magazine as the "Best New Restaurant" in Central Florida, within the Golden Spoon Awards for 2013. Critically reviewed and chosen by the magazine's restaurant editor, Chris Sherman, the Golden Spoon Awards are presented annually to only the finest restaurants throughout the state of Florida.

"When we were planning the opening of Siro, Chef Greg Picard stated that we will become the best restaurant by applying a 'no compromise' mentality," said Lindsey Smith, restaurant manager at Siro. "With the help of the Orlando World Center Marriott staff as a whole, we are proud to achieve that goal."

Featured in the December 2013 issue of Florida Trend magazine, the Golden Spoon Awards are a valuable consumer tool for residents and tourists who desire a dining experience that stands out from the standard.

In the heart of Orlando, Siro creates magic by transporting guests to a piazza-style bistro, expertly blending contemporary urban ambience with the time-honored Italian custom of communal camaraderie. Open for early-evening light fare and dinner, Executive Chef Anthony Burdo presents a crafted menu featuring dishes inspired by local fare, as well as plates that boast vibrant flavors, utilize local in-season ingredients and maintain Siro's philosophy: from farm-to-fork. Engaging the most discerning diners, blackboards overhead showcase the heart of Siro's menu: artisan cured meats and cheeses, small plates and fresh market vegetables. While guests pick and choose from selections to start their meal, family-style sharing begins with breads and pickles served on oversized wooden planks. Siro's "work hard, play hard" credo offers guests a loose-tie atmosphere to unwind and relax after a busy day.
