Bullet Point Buffet: Anniversaries; Ownership changes; Dining for a Good Cause (and Paws)

Written By Scott Joseph On May 30, 2018

round up

Tasty little bits and tids. Take all you want, but read all you take.

  • Our friends at the Chef’s Table at the Edgewater are celebrating the restaurant’s 10th anniversary today, Wednesday May 30. The festivities are throughout the facility, which, when it first opened a decade ago, did not include the Tasting Room. One of the things you can taste in that room, tonight only, are the mushroom torte appetizers usually available only in the Chef’s Table venue. Congratulations to Laurie and Kevin Tarter on 10 terrific years. Chef’s Table is at 99 W Plant St Winter Garden.
  • Of course another local restaurant is celebrating a milestone this year. Beefy King, the roast beef sandwich shop on Bumby Avenue in Orlando is having a half-century bash on Saturday. All the owners (or their kids) will be on hand serving sandwiches and other favorite goodies. I’ll be broadcasting live from Beefy King on Friday at 2 p.m. with the folks at icFlorida, so tune in for that on Facebook.
  • Paradiso Pizzeria on Semoran Boulevard has new owners. Andrea and Rich Rosenfeld took over about six weeks ago. No changes in the works, which is good because Paradiso Pizzeria won the Best Pizza in Scott Joseph’s Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants in 2017.
  • Washburn Imports, the eclectic furniture, antiques and gewgaws store that discovered if you install a bar in the shop you can sell a lot more eclectic furniture, antiques and gewgaws (just kidding) will open a third location on Morse Boulevard in Winter Park sometime this summer.
  • FRLA Central Florida Chapter is partnering with Orlando After-School All-Stars to support the annual “Round Up For Kids” fundraiser. From June 8 to Junly 31, guests at participating restaurants can help homeless youth by simply rounding up their checks to the nearest dollar amount. All proceeds benefit the Summer of Dreams, which supports homeless youth in Central Florida with meals, academic enrichment, tutoring, mentoring, and a backpack filled with school supplies for the fall. Last year, the Summer of Dreams program served 1,151 homeless students in Central Florida.

  • Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s first annual “Dine for Paws” fundraiser is Tuesday, June 5. What is that, you ask? Simply dine out at any of the participating restaurants on June 5 and 15% of proceeds will be donated to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, an animal welfare agency.
