Earls Kitchen + Bar, a Vancouver, Canada, based family-operated restaurant group, will open at the Mall at Millenia Wednesday, Sept. 21. It will be the company’s second Florida location (there is one in Miami Dadeland) and 68th overall.
The restaurant takes over the former Blue Martini space and will offer lunch and dinner daily as well as brunch on weekends.
The Orlando menu, under the direction of executive chef Simon Zanotto, will be specific to the Central Florida market. Appetizers include Tuna Poke, Sicilian Calamari, Caesar Salads and Cajun Chicken. Signature entrees are Jeera Chicken Curry and BBQ Ribs, Atlantic Salmon, Creekstone Farms Black Angus steaks and burgers, and a variety of main plate salads and sandwiches.
Earls plans to offer happy hours Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and again from 9 p.m. to midnight, to catch the shoppers leaving the mall, one assumes. The bar promises fresh squeezed juices and local and nationally sourced craft beers.
