Former RavPig/Cask & Larder chef Scott Pizzo introduces new menu at Highball & Harvest

by

Scott Pizzo, the recently appointed chef de cuisine of Highball & Harvest inside the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, introduced new items to the modern-Southern resto's bill of fare, and we got a chance to sample some of his creative dishes at a recent media dinner. Our faves: Grilled romaine with fried egg and chimichurri sided with a salad of roasted beets, stone fruit, and manchego; the triple-dipped fried chicken served with charred corn, savory mushroom-kale bread pudding, and house-made golden hot sauce; and a ridiculous chocolate pecan pie. Take a look:
