From the Castillo Kitchen
The Castillo Craft Bar + Kitchen, in St. Augustine's Historic District in the Renaissance Hotel, promises upscale comfort, meals made with fresh local ingredients, and a craft bar that offers signature cocktails and mocktails, local beers, and an extensive wine list.
While some options vary with the season, the care and artistry used to design the menu and prepare each meal is constant. Focusing on contemporary cuisine from Northern Florida, the chefs at the Castillo Craft Bar + Kitchen prepare breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on Fridays and Saturdays. Every menu is curated to offer seasonal local ingredients, new ways to serve old favorites, and a few unusual choices for the more culinarily adventurous.
Starting with breakfast, served from 7:00 to 10:30 a.m., the options include comfort foods, indulgences, and southern specialties served the Castillo way. You could break your fast with a signature omelet or egg sandwich, sausage gravy served over biscuits made from a 100-year-old recipe, or the hearty Castillo short ribs & eggs. For lighter fare, options could include a vegan oatmeal dish made with pistachio and coconut or Castillo's continental breakfast.
Vegetarian and gluten-free options are noted on every menu. Dinners always include several seafood choices for starters or entrees, plus beef, pork, salads, and sides. Your choice for dessert could be as traditional as a key lime cheesecake or as decadent as an espresso martini or s'mores martini.
