Soco, the Southern contemporary restaurant in the heart of Thornton Park, is turning five years old. And to commemorate the occasion, executive chef/partner Greg Richie has invited some other talented chefs to join him in cooking a special dinner.
Soco’s 5-year Anniversary Dinner will be Wed., Nov. 13, and will feature a welcome cocktail followed by four courses prepared by four chefs with “libation pairings” from a visiting mixologist. Wood is the fifth anniversary gift, so I’m thinking anything aged in wood barrels would be appropriate.
Joining Richie will be Venoy Rogers III of the B Resort & Spa and American Kitchen; Patrick Tramontana of Antonio’s Maitland; and Stuart Whitfield of The Glass Knife. PJ Smerechansky of The Edison at Disney Springs will head the cocktail creations.
Tickets are $120 plus tax and gratuity and can be secured by calling 407-849-1800 or emailing the restaurant here. Reservations are essential and can be made for any time between 6 and 9 p.m. Seating is limited and the event is expected to sell out. Soco is at 629 E. Central Blvd., Orlando.
Happy anniversary to Soco, and here’s to many more. Knock wood.
