One of Central Florida’s premier restaurants, Nineteen Sixty-One is a conceptualized restaurant that integrates modern cuisine from Spain with Latin American and Southern US propensities. Nineteen Sixty-One, located in the heart of downtown Lakeland, is the brainchild of Chef Marcos Fernandez, who named the restaurant after the year his parents were exiled from Cuba.
Chef Marcos states that “With the understanding of quality and the value of creating an in depth memorable experience beyond a crafted dish, the wine poured in your glass, and linens on your table- we believe it requires more than just that. Satisfying our appetite to offer the Nineteen61 experience requires partnering with local growers for pure and rich ingredients: our chickens, our pigs, our honey, our produce.”
Chef Marcos offers a variety enticing dishes for lunch, dinner, and brunch. Firm favorites include the Vaca Frita, Ropa Vieja, Florida Pompano and the Churrasco Steak. The restaurant also provides catering, and the restaurant’s Banquet Sixty-One space is available for private functions. For the full menus visit nineteen61.com
Bar61 located inside the restaurant is one of the region’s signature locations for the best cocktails, prepared by expert mixologists, and features a wonderful wine list selected by the sommelier. Be sure to come for Happy Hour, a great way to sample some fantastic spirits and cocktails, along with a few select items from the food menu.
