TR Fire LogoCome join us for a delightful get-together at TR’s.

Our friends at TR Fire Grill in Winter Park have put together a great menu for our Dinner Party. It’s a thoughtful mix of some menu favorites plus some items created especially for us. 

And, as always, each course will be paired with an appropriate beverage, beginning with the restaurants signature Mai Tai.

Cost of the dinner is $85, which includes the tax and gratuity. Nothing else to buy. Click here for details.

Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen + Bar

Reelfish exterior

When the owners of the Ravenous Pig announced, in October, that they would be moving the popular restaurant up the road, the original space was immediately snatched up by Fred Thimm for a new concept, Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen + Bar. That restaurant opened in February.

Thimm, former vice president and chief operating officer of Hard Rock International, said when we spoke in October that he had always been in love with coastal cuisine and that his intention was to create a coastal kitchen in an inland setting.

The idea was to create “a contemporary version of a classic fish camp,” which, the restaurant’s website explains, were simple, rustic eateries established during the Depression to provide workers and families “fuss-free fresh fish” (a phrase I will not attempt to utter when this review airs on WMFE-90.7).

Lakeland, I’d surmised, was the sort of place you’d find Harry’s, the Florida chainlet “seafood bar and grille” that indeed sits on a corner across from downtown’s Munn Park.

But just around the corner, in the middle of a block on Main Street, you’ll find Posto 9, a destination-worthy restaurant with charm, atmosphere and very good food.
