Cask and Larder adds a to-go option with Swine and Sons Provisions

Plus East End’s Fall Harvest Dinner, Edible Schoolyard developments and six new restaurants



Swine & Sons Provisions, the latest from James and Julie Petrakis, will open in February. The store will specialize in takeout sandwiches, jams, sauces, pastries and growlers of beer. S&S will be housed in the same building as Winter Park Cleaners, adjacent to Cask & Larder.

Prior to the fifth iteration of the Winter Park Harvest Festival on Nov. 22, the Fall Harvest Dinner, the popular farm-to-table meal in East End Market’s courtyard, will take place Nov. 14. Cost is $75 per person; visit to register.

Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen has unveiled their fall menu. The highlights: potato gnocchi with duck confit; braised short ribs with smoked potato puree; Carolina gold risotto with heirloom tomatoes; and Kurobuta pork tenderloin with mushroom ragoût.

In our 2014 edition of BITE magazine, published April 30, Kevin Fonzo of K Restaurant alluded to some exciting developments with his Edible Schoolyard Project. Well, ground has now broken on Orlando Junior Academy’s Emeril Lagasse Foundation Kitchen House & Culinary Garden. The 3,000-square-foot facility will include kitchen classroom space for OJA’s Nutritional Science Lab and four cooking stations.


Island Time, a beer and wine bar in the old Iza Tapas space, has opened in Thornton Park … Royal Indian Cuisine has opened in the old Brick & Fire space in Casselberry … Looking ahead, the American Girl retail store and bistro (yes, bistro) opens in the Florida Mall Nov. 15 … Sambumbia Restaurant will bring Puerto Rican fare to Lake Mary in the coming months … Edgar “Schakolad” Schaked will open a second Chocolate Kingdom on I-Drive … Julie Casey, aka the “Restaurant Mom,” opens the Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen early next year in College Park … Look for Union Burger, a Canadian outfit, to open in Lake Nona Village next spring.
