Helena Modern Riviera is coming to ICON Park.
The concept is owned by Jonathan and Angelica Pluvinet with Atelier Dining Group, known also for owning Rosallie Le French Cafe and Mangoni Italian Market Pizza in downtown Winter Garden.
The 8,000-square-foot establishment will be located in the heart of ICON Park, previously occupied by Tapa Toro, at 8441 International Drive, Orlando.
The brick-and-mortar of the restaurant is undergoing a total transformation, both physically and aesthetically. The venue will feature a fresh and coastal-chic vibe with comfortable and contemporary lounging areas, as well as an expansive patio that encourages the European tradition of al fresco dining.
Helena will feature modern Mediterranean cuisine curated by a Michelin-recommended chef that transports guests to the riviera coasts of Italy, France and Spain.
The menu will include bright, bold and fresh flavors from branzino to lamb, watermelon and feta salad. Even the desserts will offer an experience, with delectable options such as fresh tiramisu, built tableside.
Helena's cocktail bar will showcase a collection of sophisticated cocktails — such as eatery's namesake, "The Helena," a refreshing drink made of Tito’s vodka with muddled fresh raspberries and basil, shaken with sour mix and egg white powder, and garnished with a sweet, green sugar rim.
The venue will offer live entertainment several nights a week that celebrates the vibrant cultures of Icon Park’s visitors, such as the Spanish-inspired Gypsy Kings to Moroccan music and lively Havana Nights.
While the full transition of the restaurant is expected to be completed in Spring 2024, the soft opening will launch on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, with a limited-seating dinner experience to showcase a taste of what is to come.
The dinner event is reservation-only, limited to 120 guests and includes a pre-fixed menu for $110 per person.
