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.
BENTO was founded in the summer of 2002 in Gainesville by the Tung brothers, Jimmy and Johnny, with managing partners like David Yu joining the team as the family-owned company grew.
