The Avenue Gastrobar is a new restaurant opened by The Bento Group in downtown Orlando at 13 South Orange Avenue. The menu is very reasonably priced, especially for the downtown locale, with most items under $10, and the most expensive dishes at $12 for the steak frites and the shrimp and grits. The space is open and airy with lots of dark woods and modern yet rustic lighting and a huge bar flanking the left side. The restaurant is having their grand opening this Friday May 24, 2013 downtown.
Below are a few sneak peek photos from a recent visit:
Deviled eggs with bacon bits
Crispy Pork Belly BLT on sourdough bread – a bit too dry for me
Panko fried chicken and pumpkin waffles
Mac and cheese topped with bacon bits – A crowd favorite
