New places to eat
There are bevy of new dining options that have already made an impression on the burgeoning culinary scene in Winter Garden and more choices are on the way. The downtown district should see increased traffic in the coming months with these new businesses popping up along Plant Street.
Plant Street Market expanded operations this winter with an adjacent companion restaurant, 4 Locos Tacos. The location opened in February and it serves tacos that mirror the authentic creations found on the streets of Mexico.
The highlight at 4 Locos Tacos Is the tacos al pastor, made with shredded pork that is marinated in achiote chili and pineapple. Their handmade tortillas that are cooked-to-order also make them stand out.
The building that 4 Locos is housed is the home to Matthew’s Steakhouse as well. Another tenant came on board in July, when Burger Fi also moved in.
One of the other new area favorites is the Tex-Mex fast-casual concept, Whole Enchilada. The restaurant opened in April and it has been welcomed by brisk business for lunch and dinner.
Whole Enchilada serves staples like burritos and tacos. They do distinguish themselves by mixing unique ingredients like mahi-mahi and black tiger shrimp into their dishes.
A barbecue restaurant is going to join the Plant Street fray in February. This Little Piggy will serve traditional slow-cooked meats like brisket and ribs.
Diners looking for another place to get breakfast can look forward to Eggs and Oats. They are going into the old Catania space and the menu is highlighted by rustic breakfast dishes and organic pancakes, waffles and oatmeal.
One final spot that bears mention is the sandwich shop, Pammie’s Sammie’s. The café is the first tenant signed for the Tremaine Boyd building, which is scheduled to be finished next summer.
