Chef Norman Van Aken, a hero among Florida foodies, oversees the flagship restaurant of the Grande Lakes development. The decor may be of the un-noteworthy convention-hotel type, and the clientele rigorously expense-account, but the menu is gutsy and phenomenally flavorful. Van Aken's "New World Cuisine" adds an inventive Latin and Caribbean (and sometimes Asian) twist to classic ingredients. Popular options include a Cuban-style roasted pork marinated in citrus sauce for two days, and a gently fried jumbo shrimp stuffed with yuca and habanero-infused tartar. Rounding out courses: ceviches, tapas plates, and ice creams so rich (chocolate with chilis, cinnamon) that they're served by demi-scoop.
