Gearing up toward its opening this summer, B Resort, located in the Walt Disney World® Resort, announces an innovative dining concept developed in partnership with restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow and China Grill Management. The renowned group, of famed China Grill and Asia de Cuba, will showcase its food and beverage expertise with the inaugural location of its newest concept, American Q, which promises to showcase a modern take on classic barbeque.
Located just off the lobby, the signature restaurant will feature an a la carte menu of barbeque specialties from more than a dozen regions throughout the United States and Latin America, as well as an “all-you-can-eat” parade of BBQ meats, seafood and poultry, continuously served tableside by American Q’s ”cowboy/cowgirl” carvers. Guests will enjoy an appetizer and salad buffet served from the bed of a ’50 cherry red Ford F1 pickup truck. Freshly made sides and cornbread skillets, all served family style, will be enjoyed as guests revel in the fun of spontaneous line dances, led by their friendly servers.
A full bar will serve creative cocktails, wines and a large selection of craft beers from regions throughout North America. American Q will offer a children’s menu aiming to win over the next generation of barbeque fans, completing the American Q dining experience.
“American Q will have a flavor and style unlike any restaurant we’ve seen,” says Jeffrey Chodorow, CEO and Founder of China Grill Management. “We are thrilled to be introducing the concept in Orlando and are confident that locals and visitors alike will appreciate its uniqueness.”
A distressed brick smokehouse, barn-inspired wood-clad bar and mason jar chandeliers add to the modern yet nostalgic “industrial farmhouse” charm of this American BBQ original, which will be open daily for breakfast and dinner.
