Spotlight: Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen + Bar


The servers at Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen + Bar, the new restaurant in the old Ravenous Pig space, have apparently been instructed to explain to new guests that it is “a contemporary version of a classic fish camp,” but they’ve not been told how to respond when someone asks, “What does that mean?” So I can only assume that it means taking tastefully casual decor of the previous tenant, gluing some weathered planks to some walls and stenciling the words Fish Camp on a brick wall. One will never confuse Reel Fish with, say, JB’s Fish Camp in New Smyrna Beach. In fact there’s very little that’s campy about it. But fish? Yes, there is fish. But here, too, the …

Spotlight: Nonno’s Italian


When it was announced, in December, that Stefano LaCommare would be coming out of retirement to help out at his son’s restaurant, Nonno’s, many people were excited at the prospect of having him back in a kitchen. The reality is even better: he’s back in the dining room. LaCommare and his wife, Marie, have owned and operated several restaurants in the area over the last few decades. Stefano’s Trattoria in Winter Springs was the most recent. A popular destination for families and lovers of uncomplicated cuisine, Stefano’s also became a workplace for the LaCommare’s children, including their son, Leonardo, or Leo. Apparently Leo, who like his father is a cook, wanted his own restaurant, so he opened Nonno’s Italian Restaurant …

Spotlight: Millenia 106


Millenia 106 is a pleasant surprise, an inviting and casually upscale decor with food to match. That food is under the direction of chef Bruno Fonseca, whose resume also includes Todd English’s bluezoo and Norman’s at the Ritz-Carlton. The menu isn’t easily pegged, but creative American might be an apt description, with a greater emphasis on the creative. On a lunch visit, I chose the Pork Belly BLT, which took the familiar stacked sandwich and replaced confit belly for bacon rashers and added roasted tomatoes, onion marmalade and avocado on a ciabatta roll. Delicious. One of my companions chose the Chicken Gnudi, which featured the potato dumplings, densely al dente, tossed with tender braised chicken, bacon, pine nuts, spicy arugula …
