Santiago's Bodega ups Altamonte's brunch game this summer

Santiago's Bodega has a wonderful menu they serve all day and even late night – our food critic has extremely kind words about their short ribs, gazpacho and startlingly outstanding ceviche – but locals who know cannot stop gushing over their fantastical brunch spread that led us to dub them among our favorite boozy brunches in Orlando and led you to vote them as Best Tapas/Small Plates 2014 during last year's Best of Orlando. 

And soon, residents in Altamonte Springs will understand a little better that temptation when those giant crab legs, bottomless Bloodys, that unforgettable French toast (tip: You have to know about it to ask for an order) and much more opens up in summer 2015. 

The additional location is across the street from Petty's Meats at 1185 Spring Centre S. Blvd., Suite 1080, Altamonte Springs. There's no firm opening date yet, but we'll let you know the second they set one.
