Knife Burger, Sloppy fifths, Mexican as the new standard, and a changing of Darden guards
Celebrity chef John Tesar, whose Knife & Spoon currently resides at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes, will open a location of his Plano, Tex., Knife Burger at the neighboring JW Marriott. It’s more of a fast-food concept with an emphasis on high-quality (but affordable) burgers.
If you prefer that your burgers look like they’ve melted, you’ll be glad to know that Sloppy Joe’s has opened at Icon Park. The original Sloppy Joe’s, of course, opened in Key West in 1933 and was known as a hangout for Ernest Hemingway, which is why the restaurant and saloon’s logo boasts a likeness of Papa. Orlando’s SJ is the fifth, including one in Havana.
