Cask & Larder Beer Taps

Anna Woodman project named among best airport dining in North America

Often, travelers want to get an authentic taste of their destination. At Orlando International Airport, visitors have one of the best chances to do that in all of North America.

Credit: Gary Bogdon Cask & Larder at Orlando International Airport was ranked No. 3 on USA TODAY’s list of Best Airport Local/Regional Dining.

Cask & Larder’s OIA location, designed by Anna Schmidt, was recently ranked No. 3 among the Top 10 Airport Local/Regional Dining in North America by USA TODAY.

Cask & Larder, which was a popular destination in Winter Park, was tapped to bring its local flavor to OIA’s Terminal 2 in 2015. A project of James Beard-nominated chefs James and Julie Petrakis, it serves up farm-to-table fare, signature drinks and beer.

But though the food gives diners a taste of Orlando, the design also helps transport them away from the terminal. Renowned restaurant and commercial interior designer Anna Schmidt drew on sustainable and natural elements to bring the restaurant’s theme to life.

The eatery incorporates wood and pops of sky blue and red. Wooden fencing and lush greenery serve to separate the space from the rest of the terminal, and at the center of it all is a huge oak tree with lighted lanterns and reclaimed jars hanging from its boughs.

The airport location of Cask & Larder opened late last year. The team worked closely with Johnny Rivers of Inglur, Inc. and Peter Amaro, Jr., CEO of Master ConcessionAir, LLC (MCA) to bring the concept to the OIA terminal.

The project’s architect was BCA Architecture, and the general contractor was Gomez Construction.

To compile the top 10 listing, USA TODAY worked with Airport Revenue News, which had industry experts vet and nominate 15 finalists. USA TODAY’s 10Best readers then had four weeks to vote daily.

Cask & Larder beat out airport restaurants around the country, including those at Los Angeles International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International and Denver International Airport.

Anna Woodman selected to design The Polite Pig at Disney Springs

The Polite Pig

Design of new 5,000-square-foot restaurant will take inspiration from local flavor

Orlando, Fla. (August 25, 2016) – Renowned restaurant and commercial interior designer Anna Schmidt has been selected to create the look and feel of The Polite Pig, a new 5,000-square-foot restaurant at Disney Springs.
The Polite Pig is the next project from husband-and-wife chefs James and Julie Petrakis, who developed the popular eatery The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park, Florida. The pair will work on the restaurant with James’ brother, Brian, who owns and operates the Orlando restaurant Greens & Grille. Schmidt has previously worked with the Petrakis family to design their widely acclaimed Winter Park, Florida, restaurants Cask & Larder and The Ravenous Pig. Schmidt has also completed the design for their newest Cask & Larder location at Orlando International Airport, which will open this fall.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Petrakis family again,” Schmidt said. “Their creativity in the kitchen knows no bounds, and I can’t wait to help bring their vision to life for visitors from all over the world to enjoy at Disney Springs.”
The Polite Pig, which is scheduled to open in spring 2017, will feature wood-fired and smoked and grilled items, as well as fresh seasonal sides. It will also serve beer, wine, cocktails and house-made sodas and lemonades.
Schmidt plans to play on the restaurant’s fare and theme in her design. She will incorporate vibrant colors and wood tones to complement the wood-fired items and crisp, light finishes to showcase the fresh seasonal fare. Hints of days gone by will be captured in the furnishings and worn brick walls throughout, while elements of surprise will remind guests of the ingenuity of the founders’ culinary talents.
The Polite Pig will be located in Town Center at Disney Springs. The 5,000-square-foot space will accommodate about 200 guests, and the restaurant will be open daily. Gomez Construction is leading the project, and HHCP Architects and Anna Schmidt are working to develop the architecture and interiors, respectively. Lure Graphic Design will spearhead branding efforts.
Schmidt has also worked with a number of other national restaurants and companies, including First Watch, Olive Garden, Seasons 52, Red Lobster, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Ruby Tuesday and FOX Sports Grill.

Anna Schmidt has been a successful force behind a variety of commercial and hospitality design projects, including Winter Park’s popular Cask & Larder. Schmidt brilliantly captured the essence of the Cask & Larder brand for its flagship location in 2012, making her firm a natural selection when the restaurant’s farm-to-table concept was tapped to bring local flavor to Orlando International Airport. The new location will be a more mainstream version of its Winter Park counterpart, with the same homegrown elements and inviting atmosphere.

Schmidt joins Cask & Larder’s James and Julie Petrakis in the ambitious facelift of Orlando International Airport’s edible offerings. The team, which includes BCA Architecture, will work closely with Johnny Rivers of Inglur, Inc. and Peter Amaro, Jr., CEO of Master ConcessionAir, LLC (MCA), to deliver a farm to terminal experience. MCA presently operates four retail locations in pre-security OIA and is partnered with Johnny Rivers currently operating two Johnny Rivers’ Grill & Market locations, also housed at OIA’s Terminal 2. MCA has over 18 years of airport experience with over 100 food and beverage and retail locations, in seven different US airports.

Set to open late summer or early fall of next year, the airport Cask & Larder will replace Kafe Kalik and Au Bon Pain, in Airside Terminal 2. It will extend through an area currently serving as a runway observatory, which will become the new Cask & Larder’s bar. The bar will feature familiar signature drinks and Cask & Larder crafted beer.

Anna Schmidt Interior Design has worked with a number of other national restaurants and companies, including First Watch, Olive Garden, Smokey Bones, Seasons 52, Red Lobster, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Ruby Tuesday and FOX Sports Grill.
