Openings: Food halls, taqueria and Florida kitchen
Openings, we’ve got openings.
The Hall on the Yard, the long-anticipated food, beer and cocktail space, opened Thursday in Ivanhoe Village at 1460 Alden Road, Orlando.
The hall has nine restaurants, with a few more spaces yet to fill, three bars and private event spaces.
Opening restaurants include: Humbl, the quick-service plant-based eatery; Spice Affair, Indian; Pasion, Mexican; the Poke Rose (poke is pronounced po-kay, so is rose pronounced ro-say?); The Chef & I, American fusion; Fork & Hen, Southern; Daily Bread Bakers; True Island, Caribbean; and Wabi Sabi, Japanese.
Hall on the Yard will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday, opening 9 a.m. Sundays.
HOTY is the second food hall to open in recent weeks. Milkhouse, in the Milk District, naturally, has two concepts from Bruno Zacchini, owner of Pizza Bruno, and neither involves pizza. Instead there’s Bagel Bruno and Cicchètti by Bruno. Ravenous Pig Brewing Co. is on tap and Foxtail Coffee Co. is there, too. Fittingly for a pace called Milkhouse, Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream is there, too.
Milkhouse is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily – a bagel and a beer sounds good – at 201 N. Bumby Ave., Orlando.
Black Rooster Taqueria has softly opened its Curry Ford West location, 3097 Curry Ford Road, Orlando. While soft, it will open for dinner only, Tuesday through Saturday. Lunch hours are almost sure to follow once it goes hard.
And Four Flamingos, the subtitled Richard Blais Florida Kitchen, will officially open Dec. 3 in the former Hemingway’s space at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.
