Spotlight: TJ’s Seafood Shack


Here’s what you need to know about TJ’s Seafood Shack: gumbo. Well, OK, there are some other things you should know about it, such as that it’s a fast-casual restaurant (that means you order at the counter, then take a seat and wait for someone to bring you your food.) It’s on the east side of town, with a location in Oviedo and another on East Colonial Drive, which is the one I visited.

Spotlight: Scott Joseph on The Brass Tap


I’m trying really hard to come up with a reason that people would choose to go to the Brass Tap, the beer-centric chain that recently opened at Mills Park with others planned to open soon.

Spotlight: Goat or Sheep Pho The Lunar New Year?


February 19 marked the beginning of Lunar New Year, often mistakenly, or at least incompletely referred to as Chinese New Year. It’s the new year for the Chinese, but other Asian countries observe it as well. This year is the year of the goat. Or the year of the sheep. It’s a little unclear, actually. It sort of alternates, which may explain why some restaurants that serve mutton, which most of us know as lamb, is really goat, which most of us know as goat. Anyway, as I said, the Lunar New Year is observed by other Asian countires. The Vietnamese, for example. So if you want to join in the celebration to ring in the new year you have many more options.
