Anything New Coming into Orlando/Central Florida

Read that Danny Devito along with restauranteur David Manero of South Beach restaurant fame (Devito's South Beach) were scouting for additional locations in Orlando, LA, and Vegas. This got me thinking if any other new restaurants have their sights set on Orlando or metro area? Or are there any confirmed restaurants headed our way. I know Truluks (sp?) is headed to "The Square" on I Drive along with a new mexican dig on Sand Lake. Any others?

  1. The have started construction on Village Tavern by the Mall at Millenia

    At Pointe Orlando they have "coming soon" signs up for B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

    1. A Red Star Tavern will be opening in Orlando Fashion Square (Mall) and I've seen want ads for a Kissimmee branch of BJ's Brewhouse. If BJ's has two in the area, maybe they'll start brewing here instead of trucking it in from elsewhere.

        Your exactly right John. I heard they truck all their brews in from Texas except their Root Beer which is brewed here.

      2. I've already heard good things about The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park (where the old Za Bella/Popollo used to be). The menu is on their website and looks like something new for Orlando. I'll report back whenever I make it there!

          That place sounds amazing! Thanks a lot for the recommendation. I will have to try it soon.

            Went to the Ravenous Pig for dinner on Tue planning to go back tonight. The food is EXCELLENT, the service needs a little polish. Definitely recommend ...... it is going to be huge.

          2. If Ceviche's new Orlando location is even half as stellar as those in Tampa and St. Pete, there is cause for excitement.
