Timing is everything.
Feather & Quill, a “New American restaurant and craft cocktail bar, a more ambitious concept from the owners of Stubborn Mule and the Menagerie in downtown Orlando’s Thornton Park as well as RusTeak in Ocoee and College Park, opened in late February. It took over the space that had previously been Dexter’s of Windermere in The Grove shops.
I had peaked in while the space was under renovations and it appeared it was going to be posh place for upscale casual dining.
Of course, a month later restaurants were ordered to cease on-premise dining. That can be a real momentum killer for a new business.
But Feather & Quill is back open, and while I am unable to report yet how the interior turned out, I can give you some thoughts on the food I ordered for takeout recently.
