Last Minute Easter Brunch Ideas
If you haven't made your reservations for Easter Sunday, you'd better get a move on. (You thought I was going to say you'd better get hopping, didn't you. Well, I like being unpredictable.)
My sources tell me there are still some good options availbable to you, but you need to make the call right away unless you want to end up having Easter dinner at the 7-Eleven with one of those hot dogs on the metal rollers.
Follow the link to the list of restaurants open on Easter and pay special attention to Tap Room at Dubsdread and Highland Manor (both serving the same menu), Chef's Table at the Edgewater, Tapa Toro, Taverna Opa, and the Alfond Inn.
I think I might know why it took so long for PR’s Taco Palace to open its College Park location.
You may recall — and you’ll be forgiven if you don’t — it was first announced that popular Winter Park dive would take over the former Taste restaurant space on West Smith Street in January. Of 2014. That’s a long time even when you take into consideration Orlando’s arcane permitting and inspection procedures.
But apparently they’ve spent the time making the place look old, as in well worn and broken in.
The former Winn-Dixie supermarket at the corner of Bumby Avenue and Colonial Drive is transitioning to a multi-ethnic market. Right next door to that building, at the beginning of the strip of businesses that includes Lam’s Chinese, a restaurant that has been around for a mind-scratchingly long time, is a small cafe that has held numerous occupants, most of them Italian and pizza centric. Petey’s, I believe, was the most recent.
Now it has done a little bit of transitioning itself and is now called Fusion Cafe, offering both Italian and Latin American cuisine.
We’ve been over this before, but let’s review. A restaurant is not fusion simply because it offers two or more cuisines or styles under one roof.
