HIGHBALL & HARVEST
Aside from the classic cocktail, a highball is a train conductor’s signal to depart at full speed. It was how Central Florida’s abundant harvests moved from field to table, an iconic symbol of the region’s agricultural might. Highball & Harvest (H&H) pays homage to this legacy, with menus laden with ingredients from local farms, as well as our own green-growing efforts.
This award-winning restaurant features celebrity Chef Norman Van Aken's acclaimed New World cuisine featuring a fusion of Latin, Caribbean and Asian recipes with traditional European technique and his own innovative spirit. This is a true fine dining experience.
