Another + restaurant joins the local scene Thursday, Feb. 9, when Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen + Bar opens for dinner service. Reel Fish will occupy the space that was originally home to the Ravenous Pig, which moved to the space that was originally home to Cask & Larder, which moved to Orlando International Airport.
Reel Fish is owned by Fred Thimm, formerly of Hard Rock Cafe and the Palm. The kitchen is under the direction of Michael Zajac and Michael Huffler.
RFCK+B will feature Florida fish with a nod to the state’s fish camp culture. The renovated restaurant will feature a raw bar with oysters on the half shell and a variety of ceviches. Chrissy Benoit will oversee the restaurant as general manager.
The restaurant, at 1234 N. Orange Ave., Winter Park, will originally be open only for dinner Tuesdays through Sundays. It will add weekend brunch later this month and lunch service in March.
