THE COLUMBIA RESTAURANT

 Culinary tradition at Celebration

| By Celebration Vibe |

 

 

The Spanish food restaurant, with influences from Cuban and international cuisine, continued growing over time until it became what it is today: the largest Spanish restaurant in the world and the oldest in the United States. Seven other restaurants have been added to the Columbia family, including the beauty located in Downtown Celebration.

It's not a small name the Columbia Restaurant Celebration has to protect, part of a rooted culinary tradition in the state of Florida, but the restaurant —that overlooks the lake and is framed in beautiful Mediterranean style architecture— does not disappoint.

 

Columbia Restaurant Celebration, that has several dining rooms, an outside terrace and a Tapas bar, is impressive. Its classic decoration, full of details, such as art pieces and family photographs, adds to the enjoyment of its food, rich in flavors, colors and styles.

 

When you go visit them, do it on an empty stomach. Everything is delicious, the portions are very generous and (we assure you) you will not want to leave anything on your plate.

 

One of their most representative dishes is the traditional Cuban Sandwich, prepared with ham, salami, Mojo marinated pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard, all inside delicious Cuban bread. Then, butter and a toaster.... A treat you gotta have!

 

The "Paella a la Valenciana", Spain's national dish and our favorite at the Columbia, is another of the many options that distinguish this gastronomic oasis. Columbia's paella version is prepared in a traditional Paella pan with clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, squid, chicken, pork, Valencian rice, extra virgin olive oil, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic, spices and a touch of white wine.

 

Other dishes available at the spacious Celebration restaurant (that has impeccable table service) are the black bean soup, the Shrimp al Ajillo and the 1905 Salad. This, made out of Iceberg lettuce, julienned baked ham, natural Swiss cheese, tomatoes, olives, grated Romano cheese, Worcestershire Sauce and garlic dressing, is one of the most representative dishes of the Columbia.

 

Thanks to the peculiarities of this salad, created at the original corner cafe in Ybor City, the Columbia Restaurant was highlighted by USA Today as "One of 10 Great Places to Make a Meal Out of a Salad".

 

You cannot leave the Columbia Restaurant at Celebration without tasting some of their delicious desserts, including the "flan", and refreshing drinks such as Mojito and Sangria. The latter is made with Sauvignon Blanc or red wine from CR Generations (a house wine created to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the original restaurant), brandy and fresh citrus juices.

 

When you visit the Columbia at Celebration, it is very easy to understand why, 112 years later, the Columbia brand keeps getting stronger within American gastronomy. Their plan has been exquisitely thought out and developed: maintaining the consistency of the restaurant's classic drinks and dishes, while still adapting to modernity and opening new establishments to attack new markets.

 

One cannot ignore the fact that the Columbia Restaurant continues within the same family. Today, the fifth generation runs the restaurants, a pride of Spanish cuisine and its influences.
