FORT MYERS, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2020) – Luminary Hotel & Co., the latest property from Mainsail Lodging & Development and the first Autograph hotel in the Fort Myers-Naples area, is pleased to announce the opening of The Silver King Ocean Brasserie, on Thursday, Nov. 12. As the hotel’s signature restaurant, Silver King Ocean Brasserie will offer a menu showcasing the quality of fresh seafood through clean, simple preparations using classic techniques for a modern palate. While Executive Chef Kiel Lombardo leads the hotel’s culinary team, Chef de Cuisine Matthew Mohler and General Manager Anthony Sambrato Jr., collectively have brought the Silver King to life.
“Chef Mohler and his team are excited to get our one-of-a-kind, signature restaurant open so that our guests and neighbors can come enjoy an extraordinary dining experience with us,” said Bob Megazzini, General Manager of Luminary Hotel & Co. “The Silver King makes the most of our access to fabulously fresh Florida seafood to showcase modern dishes that are approachable but far from common. We’ve created a unique, high-end dining experience that is still comfortably casual for locals and visitors alike.”
Centered on an open kitchen, the sophisticated 60-seat restaurant will feature a coastal-inspired menu and 40 additional outdoor seats where guests can relax and indulge in the finest local seafood in Southwest Florida. The décor includes modern elements such as a flowing silver and copper artwork installation inspired by the restaurant’s namesake, the “Silver King” Atlantic tarpon, as well as silver accents, rich woods, marble and velvet.
Among the many flavorful creations Chef Kiel has added to the menu are Marinated Charred Octopus, East Coast Oysters, Potato & Caviar, New York Strip Dry Aged Prime, A5 Japanese Beef, Whole Fish Dishes packed with flavor, and much more. The restaurant will also feature The Florida Room, a private dining space that seats 14 guests, perfect for intimate gatherings and celebrations and named after Florida Heitman. The Silver King Ocean Brasserie is open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m., with plans to offer brunch in the near future. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made via Yelp.
The boutique Luminary Hotel & Co. opened its doors in September in Downtown Fort Myers on the riverfront and introduced four other food and beverage outlets: Dean Street Coffee Roastery & Retail, Ella Mae’s Dinner, The Lobby Bar, and Beacon Social Drinkery rooftop bar. Luminary Hotel & Co. also plans to open the new riverfront Oxbow Bar & Grill located on the Caloosahatchee River in March of 2021. A delightful blend of retail and casual dining, Oxbow’s second floor will be reserved for special events and groups, with an outdoor terrace and picture windows offering spectacular river views.
