Local Craft Beers and Gourmet Burgers Give Tobias Burgers & Brews New Flavor

Press Releases

Rosen Shingle Creek Restaurant Receives Menu Update, Interior Makeover

ORLANDO (May 22, 2017) — From specialty sushi and sakes at Banrai Sushi to a perfectly prepared ribeye and fine glass of wine at A Land Remembered, Rosen Shingle Creek offers an extensive variety of in-house dining options which are tremendously well received by guests. In fact, Mi Casa Tequila Taqueria, with personalized guacamole prepared tableside and hand-crafted margaritas, was so popular it was recently moved to a larger location nearly twice the size.

The latest venue to receive a new look is Tobias Burgers & Brews, formerly known as Tobias Flats & Watering Hole. Recently, the restaurant received a total makeover to the location, interior and menu. Exposed copper beer taps and metallic elements in the flooring and bar backdrop create an exciting, contemporary pub and the open food prep area gives guests a glimpse of the action.

The new menu focuses on gourmet burgers, premium whiskey and 18 local craft beers. Burger-lovers will face some tough decisions. Should they go with the zesty Avocado Pepper Jack burger, the Turkey and Brie with lavender honey mustard or veggie-friendly Farro and Black Bean burger on a toasted brioche bun? Seasoned fries or house-made salt and vinegar chips?

If you’re not a burger fan, or just looking for something different, Tobias has tempting salads, sandwiches and pub fare to please every palate, from a festive Cajun Gumbo to soul-satisfying Chicken & Waffles and Chicken Pot Pie. Starters – like Deviled Eggs and Loaded Chips – are perfect for sharing with friends and a cold brew or order a few for a meal. Fans of the previous restaurant will be happy to see a handful of specialty flatbreads still on the menu, including Turkey & Bacon with candied figs and Baja Chicken with roasted corn relish and guacamole.

The decisions don’t get any easier with the beverages. Tobias showcases the best of brewers from around the state. From Deja Moo, a unique milk porter with cocoa nibs and a hint of chipotle peppers from Tampa’s Hidden Springs Brewery, to Orlando Brewing Company’s Alligator Drool Pale Ale brewed and bottled specifically for Rosen Hotels & Resorts, there’s an ice cold beer to suit every taste. With so many choices, beer flights are a great way to find your new favorite. Tobias’s Florida Whiskey Flight highlights favorites from area distillers, including Palm Ridge in Umatilla and Timber Creek in Destin. The restaurant’s signature whiskey, a Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon, was hand-selected by the culinary team and bottled specifically for Rosen Shingle Creek by Knob Creek Distillery in Kentucky.

In a creative twist, several dishes are infused with beer and bourbon flavors. Bourbon plays a starring role in the Bourbon Burger, a half-pound Black Angus beef patty topped with Kentucky Bourbon glaze and bourbon bacon. The BBQ Jalapeno Burger features a porter BBQ sauce, the Warm Bavarian Pretzel is served with ale fondue, and hops even find their way onto the dessert menu in the Guinness Chocolate Brownie.

“The response from our guests to the makeover has been overwhelming. They love the fact that they can sample some of Florida’s award-winning craft beers and whiskeys without ever leaving the hotel and enjoy a great meal to go with it,” said Leslie Menichini, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Rosen Convention Hotels.

Inside Rosen Shingle Creek’s Vibrant Culinary Scene

Extraordinary catering for unique, innovative events.

When the Goodyear Tire & Rubber company hosts an event, they look to Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, because it’s not only important that their attendees have easy access to the convention center, but with more than 15 onsite dining options, the property has the most vibrant and varied food scene of any hotel in the area.

“Their flexibility of meeting space and their banquet food quality are both fantastic,” Goodyear’s director of customer relations and events, Mark McDonald, said. “They are very creative in putting on a great event around food and beverages.”

The property is now expanding their already exceptional dining options with the new Tobias Burgers & Brews. Attendees can enjoy specialty burgers and flatbread and some local craft beer in a warm pub-like atmosphere. The restaurant’s name comes from one of the lead characters in the historic novel A Land Remembered, set in pioneer Florida, with which this Florida-themed restaurant has an affinity.

Another onsite restaurant that recently got a makeover is Mi Casa Tequila Taqueria. The space doubled in size due to its immense popularity. The new venue features authentic Mexican fixtures, from the cobalt glass to terra-cotta tiles and tin-punched star lighting. Much like A Land Remembered, the property’s high-end steakhouse, and Cala Bella, serving upscale Italian cuisine, there’s romance and authenticity to Mi Casa. Visitors can enjoy tableside-made guacamole and jefe Margaritas, made with pineapple.

If attendees prefer buffet-style, there’s Cafe Osceola, which features extensive buffets three times daily, as well as a full menu. The restaurant was also recently refreshed, in order to intensify its original natural color palate and bring in more vibrant hues of blue, orange, and yellow for a dramatic effect. The new look further emphasizes the hotel’s overall tenant of bringing the outside inside. Sweeping picture windows line the walls of the restaurant, offering lovely views of the hotel’s pristine golf course, pools, and scenic rose garden.

Other dining outlets at Rosen Shingle Creek include Banrai Sushi, Smoooth Java, and 18 Monroe Street Market, offering 24-7 hot and cold deli options and Rosen’s Perfect Pizza, with a low-fat honey wheat crust, developed by Harris Rosen and his company’s head executive chef Jorge Oliveira. There’s also Par-Take at the golf course, Cat-tails Poolside Bar & Grill, and 24-hour in-room dining for attendees who want to spend a night in.

In case guests are in the mood for nightlife, Headwaters Lounge was recently refreshed with jewel-tone blues and greens, with extensive electronic charging stations tucked under tabletops for guests’ convenience. Clean, crisp white decor and new modern full service bar seating create a hip, modern look for more intimate meetings.

Larger groups can enjoy the property’s standout catering options. Rosen Shingle Creek has 490,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space that is ready and waiting for the most creative and inventive events and, of course, that includes stellar catering, utilizing the freshest of local ingredients.

Cala Bella even has “living art” wall hangings that contain organic greens, which the sous chefs pluck daily to create fresh organic salads. The hotel also has an organic herb garden that guests can spot poolside near the rose garden. It’s not unusual to see a chef with a basket, plucking the freshest oregano and other spices and herbs to use in dishes.

And no event is too large or demanding for Rosen’s staff. Recently, the hotel’s catering team handily hosted an event of close to 2,000 at its new 1,800-square-foot covered golf pavilion, while simultaneously serving more than 4,000 gathered at the expansive outdoor terrace outside the hotel’s ballrooms—all without breaking a sweat.

“We can make on-the-spot decisions and handle virtually any request an event planner can come up with,” vice president of sales and marketing for Rosen Convention Hotels, Leslie Menichini, said. Going above and beyond for guests is a part of “The Rosen Difference,” a dedication to providing tailored, hands-on solutions for event planners, free of any corporate red tape that’s common with standardized hotel chains. Even the founder and COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, Harris Rosen, is regularly on site with event planners to help field requests.

“When evaluating each meeting, Rosen Shingle Creek always brings top results,” McDonald said. “The banquet staff and food quality is the best in class when compared to other resorts we use. Everyone should put Rosen Shingle Creek at the top of their list for an important meeting or event.”

With a newly redesigned championship golf course by Arnold Palmer Design Company, refreshes throughout its 1501 plush guestrooms and suites, expanded restaurant offerings and new enhancements in its expansive lobby and dining areas, it’s no wonder Rosen Shingle Creek continues its climb to the top as a favorite destination for groups meeting in Orlando.

Last year, Rosen spent millions refreshing and renovating Rosen Shingle Creek. Each of the spacious guestrooms now reflect even more of the magnificent natural beauty of the Florida landscapes and nearby historic Shingle Creek. The new interiors in the dining and gathering areas meld the traditional and contemporary into a transitional feel that includes technology-friendly recharging stations and power outlets, creating a perfect home away from home for seasoned business traveler.
