A very unique restaurant opened up recently in College Park, at 2603 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, Fl. 32804., called Outpost. Celia, a good friend of mine, and I visited there recently. We wanted to experience Outpost first hand. Once I arrived Julie, the owner, greeted me so graciously when I entered, and allowed me to take some pictures for my blog.

 Julie Casey, a longtime resident of the College Park area, and also known as “the restaurant mom” has fulfilled her longtime dream of having her own place. Executive Chef, Richard Felshaw, and Chef Ken Barnett have brought seasonal menus that feature the farm-to-table concept to reality. Locally resourced produce, fresh bread made daily and locally, handcrafted beers. vintage sodas, bottled teas, a variety of wines. The attention to detail shines through from the appetizers, to the entrée, and finishing with the dessert.

I would describe this menu as modern comforts colliding with a core menu of family recipes, twisted classics, made-from-scratch food, and seasonal menus.

After the appetizers and entrées, we were so full but that didn’t stop us. The s’ mores, Outpost s’ mores! Peterbrooke chocolate from Winter Park, homemade graham crackers and Wondermade marshmallows from Sanford. You can bet we’re going back! For more information visit their website at

Let me give you a sneak peek into the Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen-Classic And Twisted Americana.

Here’s the menu choices chef Ken helped with, in the decision making.

To start, fried green tomatoes served with a delicious remoulade for dipping. A smokey Poblano, with a kiss of Sriracha, Pimento cheese spread with their fresh-baked bread. For the entrees we shared, the fish and chips, along with a beer pairing that chef Ken recommended. Finally, my choice was the meatloaf melt on Ciabatta bread. That sandwich was absolutely delicious.
