Rocco’s Italian Grille Takes In Displaced Neighbors

Written By Scott Joseph On November 4, 2014

Roccos barThe bar and lounge at Rocco’s Italian Grille.When Winter Park’s Red Fox Lounge closed along with the Mt. Vernon Motor Lodge last weekend, Central Floridians lost a favorite kitschy entertainment hangout. The lounge act there for many years  featured husband and wife team Mark Wayne and Lorna Lambey. Wayne died in 2012, but Lambey continued to perform with Michael Moore on piano. But that duo appeared to be coming to an end with the Red Fox out of business.

But Rocco Potami, chef and owner of Rocco’s Italian Cuisine a few doors away, has invited the musicians to be part of a newly expanded entertainment program at the popular Italian restaurant. Rocco’s now features entertainment in its lounge Wednesdays through Saturdays beginning at 8 p.m. and continuting to midnight. Lambey and Moore will have their first performance in their new home on Saturday, November 8.

Rocco’s Italian Grille is at 400 S. Orlando Ave., Winter Park. It’s open for dinner daily except Sunday. The phone number is 407-644-7770. Entertainment schedules will be updated on Rocco’s Facebook Page.
