Former Sam Snead’s will be home

Written By Administrator On September 18, 2008

to new 310 Park South restaurant, Lakeside edition

The former Sam Snead’s space in downtown Orlando is currently undergoing renovations and is expected to reopen next month as 310 Park South Lakeside. Technically the restaurant is located in a high-rise building across Central Boulevard from Lake Eola, but who wants to call their restaurant 310 Park South Across-From-The-Lake? And when you’re already using a name that indicates an address several miles away, what difference does proximity to the lake make?

I question the wisdom of using an address as a name when it isn’t the address of the location. Saks Fifth Avenue can get away with it; not so sure about 310 Park South. But what do I know?

A manager at 310 Park South in Winter Park told me that he expects renovations to be completed by the end of the month with an opening planned around Columbus Day. That seems ambitious. A peek through the windows shows a space that is all but gutted. A newly constructed bar is in place, but there’s little else there. But who knows, it could happen.
With the opening of this new location, the owners of 310 Park South have abandoned their plans to put a restaurant in Baldwin Park. The heel-dragging practices of Baldwin Park developers have dashed the plans of many a restaurateur.

When Sam Snead’s restaurant closed down — quite suddenly — last year, the owner of the franchise license had planned to reopen that space as another Sam Snead’s, but according to Pat Casey, that didn’t work out. Instead, he plans to open a Snead’s restaurant soon in Lake Mary on Highway 46 near Timacuan.
