I am so excited to announce that one of my favorite restaurants Bento Cafe is officially open in Winter Park, across from Winter Park Village.  This is store #11 for them with 4 more to come, all in Florida.  We were invited to a media event to get a sneak preview of their new spot before they opened and try some of their delicious Asian food.

Fun fact: Bento Cafe is owned by college friends David Yu,  Jimmy Tung and Johnny Tung and started in Gainesville in 2002.
