Bullet Point Buffet: Openings? A Slew.

Bullet Point Buffet: Openings? A Slew.

Puck rendering

It seems like we spend a lot of time talking about restaurants that have closed, it’s nice to be able to report a slew of openings.

  • Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is expected to officially open at Disney Springs Monday. Puck had previously had Wolfgang Puck Cafe when the area was known as Downtown Disney West Side, but that’s another story. It was a good restaurant when it opened in 1997, with an upstairs dining room that was meant to more closely approximate the culinary experience at the celebrity chef’s popular Spago. Then Levy Restaurants bought the Wolfgang Puck brand and took over the restaurant. How much did the restaurant change? Puck once told me that he considered asking Levy to take his name off of it. Puck, I’m told, is in control of the new restaurant, so let’s keep a good thought.
  • F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen has opened at 2420 Curry Ford Road, taking the place of Peppino’s Organic Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria, which operated in that building a very short time. This is the area that the developers have dubbed the Hourglass District. The city’s Main Streets program would rather you call it Curry Ford West (never mind that it’s on the east side).

  • Over in the Thornton Park District (that’s TPD on the Main Street’s website), the Menagerie Eatery & Bar is open and, presumably, keeping regular hours, though those hours don’t include Mondays or Tuesdays. It’s from the operators of RusTeak and the Stubborn Mule, just across the way on S. Eola Avenue.
  • In downtown Orlando, in the undistricted area near the Orange County Courthouse, the Ramen has opened. That’s its name: The Ramen. It’s owned by Suichi Tanida, former chef at Mitsukoshi restaurant in the Japan pavilion at Epcot. It’s in the former Philly Connection space at 480 N. Orange Ave.
  • À La Cart has opened in the Milk District and no, Cart is not misspelled. The concept is sort of an open-air food court, with food trucks and carts (not cartes) ringing a green space. Beer and wine are available from a central pavilion.
  • Jumping over to Lake Nona, Park Pizza & Brewing is now serving in the Lake Nona Town Center. This is the third local brand from Orlando based Tavistock Restaurant Group. Even though it is open now, the grand opening isn’t scheduled until January.
  • Ford’s Garage, a Florida chain that started in Ft. Myers in 2012, has opened a location at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. It’s in a freestanding building that sort of looks like a garage. It’s a perfect name for a greasy spoon diner, but burgers and beer are the specialties.
  • La Boucherie, which bills itself as “France’s most popular steakhouse,” has opened a restaurant in Bayhill Plaza at 7625 Turkey Lake Road. It’s in the space that most recently was a Graffiti Junktion and, if I recall, the original location of Memories of India.
  • And because the news can’t all be rosy, Kokino, a tapas restaurant also in Bayhill Plaza, has closed.

More on the Dexter’s Saga

Dexter lake maryNew information coming in on the status of the four Dexter’s restaurants. As reported earlier, and confirmed in this story, Greg Peters, founder of Graffiti Junktion, is part of a partnership that took over the Thornton Park and Winter Park locations.

I confirmed that John Hoffmeister, who was one of the partners with Dexter Richardson and Adrian Mann, has retained the Lake Mary store. In a phone conversation Friday morning, Hoffmeister said that he isn’t sure if he will hold on to the restaurant or sell it. “Right now, I am currently back in control of everything,” he said. “I’m possibly selling everything but now 100 percent sure.” He said that if he did sell to a party that has shown interest, he would likely stay on as the general manager to run things. “I expect to be here another five to 10 years,” he said.

Hoffmeister started as a dishwasher at the Dexter’s on Fairbanks Avenue 30 years ago and worked his way up through the kitchen and into management.

Hoffmeister also confirmed that the owners of the Windermere Dexter’s are Tom and Holly Ziupsnys, who also own a restaurant called Dulcetto in Championsgate. The Ziupsnyses have not returned repeated calls.

As I told you in my article Thursday, the Thornton Park and Winter Park Dexter’s will bring back some old items that had been taken off the menu over the years, including the Chicken Tortilla Pie.

Hoffmeister said that he does not plan to make any big changes at Lake Mary. “We’re killing it up here,” he said.

Sale of 2 Dexter’s Restaurants Finalized

dexter pie

As I first reported last month, the Dexter’s restaurants in Thornton Park and Winter Park have been sold to a group that includes Graffiti Junktion founder Greg Peters. Peters confirmed Wednesday that the sale had been finalized.

Drew Weisner, who has been with Dexter’s for several years, will oversee the operations of the two restaurants, Peters said. Speaking by phone, Peters said that they plan to restore the restaurants to their earlier, more popular days and will bring back some old menu favorites, including the Chicken Tortilla Pie. (The Chicken Tortilla Pie, shown above, was always a guilty pleasure of mine.)

Other key staff members are expected to be kept on, and guests probably won’t start noticing any changes for another month, I’m told.

Brio Bravo Parent Moves Headquarters to Downtown Orlando

FoodFirst LogoAnother restaurant brand is moving its headquarters to Orlando. To downtown Orlando, yet. What’s more, it’s moving into the same building that already is home to a global restaurant brand. And neither one has a restaurant in the downtown area.

FoodFirst Global Restaurants, Inc., is the company that is moving in. You probably don’t recognize that name, but you’re likely familiar with Brio Tuscan Grille and Bravo Cucina Italiana, two Italian brands with locations in the area. (Well, there was a Bravo at the Dellagio plaza but it closed about a month ago.) FoodFirst is a new company that formed in Columbus, Ohio, which is where Brio and Bravo got their starts. Currently, those two brands are the only ones in FoodFirst’s portfolio, but that’s almost certain to change.

That’s because FF’s Founder, Owner-Partner, Chairman & CEO is Brad Blum, who for many years was an executive with Darden Restaurants and was president of the Olive Garden division. After leaving Darden, Blum had stints as CEO of Burger King and Romano’s Macaroni Grill. He was also the owner of Dogmatic, an upstart hot dog concept on E. 17th Street near Union Square in New York that is closed.

But throughout that time, Blum has kept his home in Winter Park. Thus the move from Columbus to Orlando. Another reason: Columbus vs. Orlando.

Tony Roma

“As a long-time resident of Winter Park, FL, I have been an admirer of the way in which the greater Orlando area has grown,” Blum said in a press release. “Our new company headquarters will be an excellent environment as we work together to foster innovation. It is a diverse community and has a great deal of international tourism.”

FoodFirst is slated to move into downtown’s CNL building, which is also home to Red Lobster’s corporate offices and test kitchen. You’ll recall that Red Lobster was originally a Darden brand that was spun off a few years ago.

FoodFirst has said it will build a test kitchen facility but it isn’t clear at this time if it would be in the CNL building or elsewhere. Red Lobster has an elaborate state of the art kitchen facility there as well as a mockup of a Red Lobster restaurant for training — it is not open to the public.

The two Brios in the area are at Winter Park Village and Mall at Millenia. The new parent company will focus on growing its two current brands. It will also be changing their names to Brio Italian Mediterranean and Bravo Fresh Italian. According to the statment, FoodFirst will maintain the support center in Ohio.

Besides Darden and now FoodFirst, Orlando and Central Florida are also home to headquarters for RomaCorp, Tony Roma’s and TR Fire Grill; Earl Enterprises, parent of Planet Hollywood, Buca di Beppo, Earl of Sandwish and Bertucci’s Italian Restaurant, among others; Hard Rock Cafe; Tavistock Restaurants; Ruth’s Hospitality Group; Sonny’s Barbecue; and the quicly growing 4R Restaurant Group.

Pan Asian Planned for Pointe

Lotus Asia House booths

More Asian food is scheduled to come in off the street when Lotus Asia House opens at Pointe Orlando next year. The new restaurant will take over the space formerly held by RA Sushi.

Lotus Asia House is being developed by restaurateur Karim El Sherif along with chef/consultant Scott Drewno. El Sherif’s Linkedin profile says that he has been owner of Lotus since July of this year. Previously, he was director of food and beverage/taskforce consultant at the Waldorf Astoria, The Roosevelt in New Orleans.

Drewno is the chef-owner of Chiko in Washington,D.C., and previously worked with Wolfgang Puck at various restaurants, including The Source.

In a statement provided by Pointe Orlando, El Sherif said of Lotus Asia House, “We want to make this an area where people will want to sip creative cocktails and sample Pan-Asian cuisine, inspired by street food vendors found all over Asia.”

The menu will offer Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisines as well as sushi. The decor, shown here in artist renderings, will feature a sculpture of Buddha at the entrance to the lounge, because, you know, it’s Asian. Seating will be at large round booths and communal tables. There will also be an indoor-outdoor sushi bar. Outdoor sushi is fun in the Florida summers.

No date has been set for the opening, but expect it early 2019. The previously announced Hopdoddy Burger Bar, which is going into the former Funky Monkey Wine Company space, should open shortly after the New Year if not before.

Bullet Point Buffet: Cake, Wine, Beer and Noodles

RamenRumble2 SM copy

  • TastyChomps, the Ricky Ly-led blog, has announced plans for its second Ramen Rumble in association with Osprey Tavern. Ramen Rumble 2 will take place Dec. 10 at the Baldwin Park restaurant from 6 to 9 p.m. The rumbling chefs this time around are: Yuhi Fujinaga, Executive Chef Morimoto Asia at Disney springs; Kevin Kel Phanhvilay, Chef/Owner Sticky Rice Lao Street Food; and Travis Cliff, Head Chef Jade New Asian. (No one actually rumbles but knives might be drawn.) Tickets here.
  • Congratulations to The Glass Knife on its first anniversary. I didn’t bake a cake but chef Stuart Whitfield did and he’ll share a slice with the first 365 guests Sat., Nov. 10. It’s for dine-in customers only, so don’t just hop out of the car with the engine running and expect to grab a slice to go.
Tony Roma
  • Yellow Dog Eats is celebrating its 20th anniversary, also Nov. 10, at the Gotha location. The restaurant is actually 22 years old but it’s two decades in Gotha (almost; it moved from Winter Park in 1999). There will be a $20 food special but there’s no mention of cake. But I know where they can get one.
  • Also on Saturday, at the other end of the 408, you can have a Taste of Orlando at the Waterford Lakes Town Center. It’s $15 in advance or $20 tomorrow. It starts at 11 a.m. and the site says it runs “all day,” so don’t yell at me if you get there late and it’s over. If you want to save the five bucks on tickets, click here.
  • Here’s something else going on at the Osprey Tavern. It’s the Inquisitor Wine Dinner. When? you ask. Sunday, Nov. 11, at 6 p.m. $95 for chef’s tasting menu and $40 for the South African wines pairings. How is it a wine dinner without the pairings? Inquisitive minds want to know. Call 407-960-7700 for the answer and a reservation.
  • If beer is more your thing, you might be interested in the 12 Beers of Christmas at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs, Sunday, Dec. 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It will feature multiple stations of local brewers pouring holiday themed brews paired with pan-Asian bites. Morimoto, the Iron Chef himself, will be on hand as host. $55 per person; tickets here.

La Luce Wins Best Italian Foodster Award

La Luce logo

La Luce, the Hilton at Bonnet Creek restaurant created by the late Donna Scala, has been voted Best Italian in our Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants.

Stefano’s Trattoria in Winter Springs took second place and Maitland’s Francesco’s Ristorante and Pizzeria was third. Only two votes separated those two restaurants.

Nancy Brundage wrote, “La Luce has a fantastic wine list, awesome pizza, great salad choices and appetizers, delicious entrees that taste as great as they are beautiful and decadent desserts all in an\ casually elegant atmosphere. The service staff is very knowledgeable and eager to make your experience a memorable one. I’d give it 3 thumbs up but I only have 2 thumbs.”

In placing her vote, Tina Raditz said, “Stefano’s Trattoria is my favorite all time restaurant.” And Vance Maiorana wrote, “Stefano’s, best food, best atmosphere, best people.”

“Francesco’s,” Marcy Birnberg Kast wrote, “is consistently excellent. The food is delicious, the portions are generous, the presentation is lovely, the atmosphere is warm, the servers, hosts and Francesco himself are friendly and accommodating, and the prices are reasonable. Bottom line, Francesco’s checks all the boxes!”

This category proved to be a popular one, and many voters left passionate notes about their choices. Some particularly heated exchanges dealt with Stefano’s and its relationship to Nonno’s in Longwood, which came in fourth in the poll. Stefano’s Trattoria was previously owned by Stefano LaCommare, who is now with Nonno’s. Some commenters wondered if voters knew that the ownership of the Winter Springs restaurant had changed. Others said they knew but still preferred Stefano’s.

But the outcome has one positive note: Central Florida has a lot of very good Italian Restaurants.

Don’t forget to nominate your favorite restaurant for Best Burger here.

1921 No Longer by Norman Van Aken

1921 dining alcove

Norman Van Aken has ended his partnership with the owners of the Mount Dora restaurant that bears his name. Or bore his name. 1921 by Norman Van Aken will now be known as 1921 Mount Dora.

The restaurant had been a collaboration between the celebrated chef and Donna Brown and Ken Mazik, who are also the owners of the Mount Dora Modernism Museum that is located across the street. Artwork and furniture from the museum’s collection are used throughout the restaurant.

A joint statement released by the restaurant read: “After a tremendous two-year run, chef Norman Van Aken and his partners at 1921 in Mount Dora have decided to part ways with much respect and admiration.”

The dissolution of the partnership was first reported by Faiyaz Kara of the Orlando Weekly.

General manager Adam Crane said by phone Wednesday afternoon that nothing about the restaurant is expected to change. Camilo Velasco will remain chef de cuisine and the menu is not expected to change.

One wonders if the split was sudden or at least thought through. The name has been changed on the restaurant’s Facebook page but Van Aken’s name is still listed under the culinary team heading. And then there’s the website — 1921nva.com. Seems that will have to go, too.

Van Aken retains ownership in two Florida restaurants, Three, a Miami restaurant and cooking school that just celebrated its first anniversary, and Norman’s at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Resort in Orlando.

Now is the Best Time to Visit the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

epcot18 earth

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — to visit the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It opened on August 30 this year and will conclude on Monday, Nov. 12. I’ve never missed one — even when the official Walt Disney World Wine Festival was held elsewhere on property and in the early days when pretty much the entire festival was confined to the Odyssey event structure. That space now isn’t even big enough for the Festival Center.

But at least it had air conditioning.

Although the festival is nearly 10 weeks old at this point, I only made it out there recently. Scheduling conflicts, domestic and international travel and other commitments just made it difficult to plan some time at the park.

Secretly, I’m glad I wasn’t able to go when the festival first opened. Did I mention it was in August?

I usually attend a media day, which is held on or close to opening day, and it is always oppressively hot. We’re all loaded down with our camera gear and carrying a swag bag of goodies (not always that good), but we bravely face the death march around the World Showcase to sample the foods and taste the wines, beers and other beverages.

What a difference several weeks and about 20 fewer degrees on the thermometer make. I actually enjoyed my stroll.

Tony Roma

epcot18 snails

I started in France — I prefer to enter the park via the International Gateway — because the Escargot offered at its marketplace is a perennial favorite. This year the slugs were baked into a mini croissant and topped with a garlic and parsley butter. Easy to pick up and eat as you walk.

epcot18 beef

France had a new offering this year: Carbonade de Boeuf, beef and bacon braised in beer, served with pureed potatoes. It was delicious. And my friend and I ended by splitting the Creme Brulee a la Confiture de Framboises, a perfect custard with a crisped sugary top and raspberry jam on the bottom.

If I’d had all that back in August or even September I would have needed one of those electric scooters to make it the rest of the way around.

In Spain I had the Charcuterie in a Cone: jamon, salami, olives and cubes of cheese in a handy handheld cone, perfect for stroll-eating. The cone is made of paper and is not edible; learn from my mistake.

epcot18 cropped burger

The section called Next Eats that premiered a couple of years ago featured the Impossible Burger Slider at the Earth Eats marketplace. With a name like that you might expect something difficult to swallow — a slider that won’t slide, perhaps. The Impossible Burger, you may know by now, is a plant based substance that mimics the taste and texture of ground beef. I applaud the idea — I’d like to introduce more plant based foods that aren’t kale into my diet — but each time I’ve tried the Impossible it just tastes like an overcooked burger.

epcot18 africa

Here’s another nice thing about waiting until late October or early November to visit the Food & Wine Festival: the lines are appreciably shorter. Some of the marketplaces had no lines at all, including Canada and its impossible Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup. I saw no takers when I was there, even though the weather was more amenable to a heavy cheese soup.

I enjoyed my stroll around the festival more than in years past, and I can’t wait for next year’s to come around. I’ll look forward to visiting it sometime around Halloween.

The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival continues daily through November 12. Check the website for daily events and special demonstrations. As always, admission to Epcot is required to attend.

Bullet Point Buffet: All Good

ASFOH Chef Jill Holland Soup for Good

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has launched its own line of food products. Called A Spoon Full of Hope, the line includes tomato basil Soup for Good, shortbread Cookies for Good, and Honey for Good in various flavors. Sounds good. Visit A Spoon Full of Hope for details.

The folks at Waldorf Astoria and Bull & Bear are hosting a tasting of bourbons on Nov. 15th from 4 to 6 p.m. The Master Blenders Series will feature Old Rip Van Winkle, Blanton’s, Colonel E.H. Taylor and Buffalo Trace whiskies. $100 per person; reserve here.

Teak Neighborhood Grill will be featured on the Cooking Channel’s “Late Night Eats” on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 11 p.m. That’s 8 p.m. Pacific Time, but that hardly qualifies as late night eats.

Ace Cafe Orlando will host a Veterans Day celebration on Saturday, Nov. 10, which is not Veterans Day. Free draft beer for veterans and food and drink specials for everyone else from 1 to 8 p.m. Live entertainment and motorcycles, too.

Ravenous Pig hosts a Beaujolais Wine Dinner on Sunday, Nov. 11 (that’s Veterans Day) at 6:30 p.m. Brian Kerney and Rob Chase of Digress Wine will be pouring seven wines for the four-course dinner. $100 per person. Call 407-628-2333 to reserve.

Lineup Set for Saturday’s Cows ‘n Cabs

Cows and Cabs tent

The organizers of Cows ’n Cabs have released the lineup of chefs for Saturday’s event and it’s a stellar one.

Cows ’n Cabs has grown each year since its 2012 debut and is now one of the area’s premier food and beverage events. Conceived by 4 Rivers Smokehouse founder John Rivers and cohosted by Dave Larue, vice president of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Cows ’n Cabs is a fundraiser for After School All-Stars Orlando and Elevate Orlando.

It takes place in Winter Park’s West Meadow across the railroad tracks from Central Park. Originally, it was held under a large tent. It still is, but it has grown so much that several of the participating chefs and beverage vendors are set up outside under the sky. (Saturday’s forecast is for 0% chance of rain with temperatures at about 70 degrees at 7 p.m.; perfect.)

In and around the tent you’ll find such notable chefs as: Yuhi Fujinaga, Morimoto Asia; Kathleen Blake, The Rusty Spoon; Francisco Galeano, Tapa Toro; Vassillis Coumbaros, Taverna Opa; and John Miele, Enzo’s Hideaway. See the full list of chefs below.

Tony Roma

Rivers, of course, will be on hand, and it’s always fun to see what he and his team come up with. By the way, despite the name, there is more to eat than cow and more to drink than cab (in fact so much more that you might want to consider taking one to and from the event). In years past, the 4 Rivers folks have presented a whole roasted pig, complete with apple in the mouth.

“The entire 4 Rivers family is looking forward to another great turnout for Cows ‘n Cabs on November 3rd,” Rivers said in a statement. “The event continues to grow each year with the help of our roster of amazing chefs and sponsors and we’re very proud to have donated more than $525,000 to local charities since 2012 and look forward to adding to the number this year.”

In addition to the food and drink, country music recording artist Angie Keilhauer will perform.

VIP entry ($160) for this year’s Cows ‘n Cabs begins at 6 p.m. General admission ($120) is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Cows ‘n Cabs tickets can be purchased here.
