K restaurant in College Park has two fun events this weekend. The first is another in the estimable restaurant’s Friday Night Flights series, where manager and resident wine expert, Dan Francoforte, selects six wines for attendees to sample. In the past, the FNF series have been held on the front porch of the old house that now houses the restaurant, but this Friday, March 25, the wines will be sipped in the all-new K Courtyard and Garden (glad they didn’t call it the Kourtyard). Chef/owner Kevin Fonzo has promised to prepare some light bites to toss out the back door to those in attendance. Cost is a ridiculously low $15, which includes tax but not gratuity. Dan counsels that guests should dress appropriately for the garden. The event is from 6 to 8 p.m., but you should plan on being there before 7 o’clock so you’ll have enough time to sample all the wines.
Then on Sunday, March 27, Fonzo is kicking off his Kevin’s Day Off series with a farm-to-table dinner prepared by guest chef Scott Maurer of Peabody Orlando. The evening will start with a cocktail reception in the garden at 5:30 then move inside for the four-course dinner. Cost is $50, not including tax or gratuity.
Reservations for both events are strongly advised because seating is limited. Call 407-872-2332.
K restaurant is at 1710 Edgewater Drive, Orlando.
