Did you know that Mitchell's Fish House is under new ownership? You'll remember that Mitchell's had been under the Ruth's Chris banner when it opened a few years ago in Winter Park Village. Now it's part of the Landry's Seafood team. There was a time when I would see that as a disadvantage, but with Oceanaire Seafood Room, Landry's has proven that it can own high quality seafood restaurants. So, I think it's time to give Mitchell's another look.
And here's a good opportunity for a sneak peek. Mitchell's is teaming up with our friends from Rioja to host a wine and food walkabout event at the restaurant on Saturday, August 22, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The Rioja folks have promised more than 30 wines, all with 90-plus ratings, and the Mitchell's chefs will offer an array of tapas, including almond-crusted Manchego, salt cod fritters, paella, lamb chops and more.
All of this is just $45, which includes tax and gratuity. Sounds like a pretty cheap and tasty afternoon to me.
