James and Julie Petrakis, Chef/Owners of The Ravenous Pig and Cask & Larder, will open The Polite Pig at Disney Springs.

Located in the Town Center near to Amorette's and the entrance to the Lime Garage, The Polite Pig will be a new fast casual concept. Construction inside the building has just begun, with an opening in Spring 2017.

The menu will be made up of wood-fired smoked and grilled items along with an innovative beverage program offering all drinks on tap - including Cask & Larder beer, wine and cocktails.

"As a locally-based restaurant group, it's great to bring our new concept to Disney Springs where we'll have the opportunity to showcase genuine Florida cuisine for Guests from around the world," James Petrakis said. "With so many talented chefs opening new restaurants at Disney Springs, we're really excited to be part of a group helping Central Florida distinguish itself as a world-class culinary destination."

The Ravenous Pig is a popular local restaurant located in nearby Winter Park, and is widely respected for its changing menus based on seasonal ingredients and made-from-scratch items.

Chef Brian Petrakis, James' brother who owns and operates Greens & Grille in Orlando, will partner with Julie and James on The Polite Pig.

On our last day for Disney, we went here for dinner. It was very good! I got the grilled chicken. The Food had very interesting bbq flavors. The lemonade was also very good and fresh. It was their own specialty kind.

Photo update as of Friday, September 28, 2018. The tile roof has been installed on the roof overhang, which matches tile roofs on other buildings in the area. Overhead fans and lights, and copper gutter have been installed. Cast member states inspection will be next week, and perhaps opening by next weekend.

It appears the Polite Pig is adding a shade structure to its outdoor seating area.

Today it was $4. Had the fried chicken sandwich, sweet potato tots, and split a pitcher of beer with a friend. My total was $34 including tip.

I am from Chicago. There is one thing that Orlando is no good on and that is bbq. Though 4rivers does an edible job.
