Since our opening in 2009, we’ve honored our commitment to bring a culinary experience to central Florida that was authentic, principled, and progressive. While we’ve certainly evolved in the last decade, our commitment remains unchanged. We pride ourselves on our scratch kitchen, craft beverages, classic cuisine with a modern twist, and a pretension-free atmosphere. Melding our values and professional experience into a creative expression, we’ll do our best to help you feel at home. The front porch of our renovated historic home offers a beautiful view of Lake Morton, is steps away from the Polk Museum of Art, and is conveniently nestled in the midst of central Florida’s most unique attractions.
Our team is welcoming, knowledgable, and passionate about providing our guests the best in food and service. Owner, sommelier, and in-house expert Richard DeAngelis is guided by his love and knowledge of wine, craft beverages, and food. His extensive industry experience, garnered through years of academic and experiential education, is a gift. Chef Lucy Cortes-Castaneda has the edge of a New Yorker, the creativity of an artist, and the culinary skills of a true chef. Under Richard’s guidance, our bartenders ensure our beverage program offers the very best in eclectic, hand-crafted wines and cocktails. Eschewing national brands, we value independence and integrity in a way that truly honors our staff, vendors, and guests.
