Fontana Italian Restaurant

The fare at the Biltmore's lesser recognized Fontana consists of melodies simpler than those found at the signature Palme d'Or. The emphasis here is on fine-tuning Italian staples that have been passed from generation to generation: bruschetta, lasagna, chicken with sausages, and broccolini. It's common Italian/Mediterranean fare that's handled with an uncommon finesse. À la carte meats and seafoods are char-grilled or roasted in the wood-burning oven. Specials include New York strip, filet mignon, Florida grouper, salmon, and succulent sea scallops as munificent as marshmallows.
