Different lunch greeting at Zelló



There's a new sandwich kid in town. The Zelló Urban Café has taken over the street level of 2 South Orange Avenue (407-540-1150), serving gourmet coffee, cinnamon rolls and funny, flat "zandwiches." Actually, the flat sandwich part is rather good, big slabs of fresh-baked focaccia bread with assorted fillings like the "Taj Mahal express" of curry chicken, cucumber and cabbage with a garlic and pepper spread.

Spreads are the thing, and if you're not crazy about basil pesto on your tuna, pick another one -- pick another everything, in fact. Choose from a menu of meats, spreads and toppings for -- multiply by five, carry the one -- lots of combinations. The "pick two" -- half-sandwich, soup, salad or side combo -- is a steal at $5.99, and dinner can run up to about 9 bucks. The place looks like it's right out of midtown Manhattan, and its open till 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
