A Banquet at the Grand Orient
Welcome to the Grand Orient Restaurant, Garcia’s Place
Founded in 1905 by Manuel Garcia of La Fonda, the Grand Orient quickly became a center for elegant banquets and exquisite meals. Located in the center of downtown Ybor, the Grand Orient continued to flourish as the only Spanish restaurant in the area.
With specialties of Galician ham, mortadella, mayonnaise snapper, and cream cheese and tureen, the entire banquet from the Florida Postmasters Association banquet will be recreated with modern twists.
A Taste of Spain
The menu is a mix of Spanish and local flavors, giving the diner a taste of the Garcia family. With generous servings and friendly staff, the Grand Orient Banquet can be your destination for any high class banquet or large event.
