A very unique restaurant opened up recently in College Park, at 2603 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, Fl. 32804., called the Outpost. I went with a dear friend of mine, Celia. We wanted to experience The Outpost first hand. I arrived first. The owner, Julie Casey greeted me so graciously when I entered, and allowed me to take some pictures for my blog.  Julie Casey, long time resident of the College Park area, and also known as “the restaurant mom” has fulfilled her long time dream of having her own place. Executive Chef, Richard Felshaw, along side with Chef Ken Barnett have brought the farm to table concept to reality. Locally resourced produce, fresh bread made daily and locally, hand crafted beers. vintage sodas, bottled teas, a variety of wines.The attention to detail shines through from the appetizers, to the entree, and finishing with the dessert. Oh, I have to be honest, we were so full and happy after the appetizers and entrees there was no way we could have eaten dessert.  The s’mores, the Outpost s’mores!  Peterbrooke chocolate from Winter Park, homemade graham crackers and Wondermade marshmallows from Sanford. You can bet we are going back for that! Let me give you a sneak peek into The Outpost.

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 paring that chef Ken recommended. Finally my choice, the meatloaf melt on Ciabatta bread. What a great experience we had. When the check arrived…
