Spotlight: Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen Opens In College Park


The College Park neighborhood has a new eatery that even includes that word in its name. The Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen is charming and has a rustic mien that belies its newness. It isn’t perfect — few restaurants are right off the starting block — but most of its shortcomings are from trying too hard, and that is something I’m hesitant to suppress.

Spotlight: Rincon Cubano Cafe, Now Rincon Latino


For many years I’ve had a little favorite Cuban cafe on Forsyth Road called Rincon Cubano. I’ve been recommending it to people for a long time, and I always hear back from those I’ve sent there how much they liked it, too. So I was a little concerned when I was driving by recently and saw that the name had changed to Rincon Latino. I figured I’d better stop in and give it a try.

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.
