North Quarter Tavern has opened in the quarter north of downtown Orlando known as the, um, North Quarter.
NQT is a project of the folks at Citrus, which is just across from the new tavern, and indeed Matt Wall, who has been cooking at Citrus for the past six years, will be heading the team here as executive chef. ““The Tavern has been a project two years in the making and the team is excited to share our chef-driven neighborhood tavern with Orlando.,” Wall said in a statement.
North Quarter Tavern is located on the ground floor of the recently opened NORA apartment building at 861 N. Orange Ave. Initially, NQT will only be open for dinner hours Tuesday through Saturday, but there are plans to expand to lunch and brunch and extend the dinner service to other days, as well.
The menu features pubby fare, but with more chef touches. You’ll find such items as burgers, fried chicken, pork cassoulet and a Guinness braised lamb leg, as well as meatloaf, short rib tacos and poutine, the cheese curdy Candadian favorite.
You can get a look at the menu at North Quarter Tavern’s website. The phone number is 407-757-0930
