Spotlight: Spoleto Pasta Assemblage


Pasta shouldn’t be complicated. Spoleto, a new concept that opened recently near UCF with other locations coming soon, makes it so. That isn’t to say that what it offers isn’t good. In fact, I liked my food — and other aspects about the experience — at Spoleto a lot. I just wish it weren’t so confusing.

Spotlight: Scott Joseph On Umi Sushi Bar And Japanese Restaurant


I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Umi, a sushi bar and Japanese restaurant on Park Avenue, even though it included some of the absolute worst mussels to ever have been placed in front of me. The menu features not only the expected sushi selections but also kitchen foods that include robata grilled meats and a couple of ramen soups.

Spotlight: The Golden Knife


The Golden Knife bills itself as a chop house. Its menu is light on appetizers, unless you consider salads to be starter course material. My eyes were drawn to an octopus option, until I also saw that the price was $20, which was the same as some of the entrees.

Spotlight: Tamarind Indian Restaurant


Tamarind, the very good Indian restaurant in Winter Park, has opened a location in the culinarily starved eastern part of town. It apparently is not a secret — when I arrived one afternoon for lunch it was packed with happy diners.

Spotlight: Shish.Co Mezze & Grill


Here’s a cute little restaurant that makes me think of a food truck without wheels. It’s a pop-up restaurant in the sense that it looks like it just popped up in the middle of a parking lot in Maitland. It’s called Shish.Co Mezze & Grill, a Mediterranean eatery with a compact but comprehensive menu of such favorites as gyros, shish kebobs, falafels, and even lamb chops.

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. It has 60 taps of craft beers, but other places in town have beer lists just as impressive. So what else would make someone want to come here more than once?

Spotlight: Scott Joseph on Ari Hibachi & Sushi


Ari, a sushi and Japanese restaurant, has opened in the Gateway Village just north of Orlando International Airport. Technically, this is a second location for a restaurant in Celebration. But this new Ari has added teppanyaki cooking to its repertoire. That’s the style of cooking where the guests sit around large griddles while the chefs make a lot of really unnecessary banging and clanging sounds with their spatulas, knives and even the salt and pepper shakers.

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.
