One can also envisage the meal that Grandmamma cooked for the Ringling men of rich dishes, and how wonderful it tasted after the foods that were served to them on the tables of hotel dining rooms.”

Foods at The reserve

You’ve asked and The Reserve has answered.

We’re pleased to announce an exciting new food menu, including hot-pressed sandwiches (Cubans and more), cold sandwiches, beautiful house-made salads, flatbread pizzas, dips and appetizers, new and improved charcuterie boards and many other delectable items.

We have Sunday Brunch on Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm, and also, starting on 9/26/19, we’ll have a special Thursday Dinner from 6 pm to 8 pm every Thursday night.

The Reserve features a culinary experience inspired by the Ringling family and the “Greatest Show on Earth,” the Roaring 20s and 1930s, and “Old Florida.” You may or may not be aware, but the three buildings on this property were originally home to John’s brother, Charles (called “Mr. Charlie”), his wife, Edith, and his family. Our food is simple and meant to be shared just as they would share with their family. Our menu is ever-changing and is served all day with your choice of coffee, tea, kombucha, craft beer or wine.

And don’t worry, there’s plenty of parking at the 14th Street lot. Please follow the small brown Reserve sign.
