Newsy Nuggets: Indian eets (and eats), fast-casual collab and a bao spot in downtown Orlando

Eet by Maneet Chauhan has opened at Disney Springs. I started that sentence with the name of the restaurant, so of course I capitalized it, but technically the name is eet by Maneet Chauhan. I’m guessing the name comes from the last part of the first name of the Food Network star and James Beard Award-winning chef (pictured at top). It could have been called Chau by Maneet Chauhan, which is easier to capitalize.

The restaurant from Chauhan and her husband, Vivek Deora, a hospitality entrepreneur, is the couple’s first outside of Nashville. The Disney Springs’ menu includes such things as chicken tikka naan pizza, tandoori chicken poutine, and something called a walking taco, which I hope doesn’t refer to the freshness of the ingredients. Eet (eet) is open for lunch and dinner daily.

Tabla Oviedo

Speaking of good Indian food, Tabla Oviedo is celebrating its one year anniversary on Wednesday, Dec. 6, with free samples all day and raffles and giveaways from 5 to 7 p.m. Also, beginning Wed., the Oviedo location will start serving lunch.

Four Rivers Smokehouse (which is really 4 Rivers Smokehouse but, again, start of a sentence) and Lime Fresh Mexican Grill have announced an expansion of a collaboration that will include 4 Rivers’ food products on Lime’s menu. The two fast-casuals had previously partnered on National Taco Day in October with the 4R’s BBQ Pork Taco. (No information on the taco’s ability to get around on its own.) The ongoing collaborative items will include 4R’s Smoked Pork Empanada and something currently known only as spicy pork burrito. That last item will be named in a social media contest in December. (Burrito McBurritoface has already been suggested, I’m sure.)

The Bao Spot has opened in downtown Orlando in a former Jersey Mike’s sub space at Church Street Market.
