There is a lot of variety of restaurants to eat in Lakeland. Seafood is one of the most poplar dish due to its freshness since Lakeland is close to the Gulf Coast. However, if you are looking for something different such as a delicious Spanish fusion then I recommend Nineteen61.
Nineteen61 Latin Cuisine, opened Fall of 2015 in Downtown Lakeland. The conceptualized Restaurant is an integration of Modern Spanish style with Latin American and Southern propensities, in a setting unique to Central Florida.
While Nineteen 61 certainly is not cheap it is most definitely worth the price. And you’re not just paying for food; you’re paying for a fine dining experience. The service, even at lunch, was top notch. The chef, Marcos Fernandez, was happy to come out and chat with me, and he was incredibly kind. At nighttime, Nineteen 61 features live music and an intimate atmosphere.
The next time you want to “treat yourself” I’d definitely recommend trying Nineteen 61.
