I was invited as a guest to the opening party at a new steakhouse restaurant in Disney Springs called STK. It is the 11th location worldwide and stands at more than 14,000 square feet. 500 guests were invited to experience bites, cocktails, and refreshments at the new restaurant with a live DJ spinning music. STK actually regularly houses in-house DJs as part of its dining experience.

STK has locations in New York City, Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, and Milan with additional locations coming soon to Toronto, Austin, San Diego, Denver, Ibiza and Edinburgh. The opening party was hosted in conjunction with ONE Group Hospitality, Inc which represents the restaurant concept globally.

My favorite part of the party? The beautiful rooftop deck that overlooks the new Disney Town Center, which is a new wing of Disney Springs that features luxury and difficult to find shops and food finds. There is nothing like it in Tampa and it is just a really nice touch to all the upgrades coming to Disney Springs.

The first floor is an elegant lounge that reminds me of something you would see in an upscale classic steakhouse dining setting. It was beautiful and fits well in the new Disney Springs with Morimoto Asia also providing a backdrop that makes for a perfect date, girl’s night out, or a celebration. The first floor may be by reservation-only, but don’t quote me on that. The second floor seems to cater more towards general dining, also both floors  have a bar.

Farm-To-Table influence? The STK Orlando Executive Chef, James O’Donnell, says that “roughly twenty-percent of STK Orlando’s menu will be exclusive to the Disney Springs location, including opening-day items such as Florida grouper, seared tuna, and chili rubbed rack of lamb”.

Hours for lunch at STK Orlando will be 11:30AM to 3:30PM daily, dinner from 5PM to 11PM, Sunday through Thursday and 5PM to midnight Friday and Saturday.  For reservations call (407) 917-7440.

Here are some photos from myself and some fellow bloggers and social media friends:

I would definitely like to return soon and try the actual steak and menu in the future. I would definitely say it adds something different to do at Disney Springs and the view is definitely worth seeing at least once if you’re in Orlando on vacation or happen to live there. Something to also check out in the future when normal business hours run is the fireplace next to the rooftop deck.

My favorite hors-d’oeuvre was the Lil’ BRG’s, which were sirloin sliders and they were an overwhelming crowd favorite with the audience cheering whenever someone came around with these tasty kitchen creations.

STK is now OPEN and will begin lunch service starting on May 31st in Disney Springs.

If you’re hungry at Sunset Music Festival this Memorial Day Weekend, there are plenty of great options to enjoy this year while enjoying one of the biggest EDM festivals in Florida! Sunset Music Festival is this Saturday and Sunday, May 28th and 29th of 2016, at Raymond James Stadium. Tickets are on-sale on EventBrite. Here are a few with some delicious drool-worthy photos from the social sphere:

Tica’s Tacos

They pride themselves on bringing a smile to the faces of their customers and with some amazing looking tacos – I can see why. The Carne Asada, Carnitas, and Pollo Barbacoa classic tacos all look enticing. Also the 1 pound burrito and Spanish fries (pork + waffle fry goodness) are noteworthy. Here is a quick look:

Killer Melts

The Grilled Cheese Festival last month proved there is something special about enjoying a grilled cheese in the outdoors with friends. Killer Melts will be hitting SMF from South Florida. Their signature Killer Melt features BACON JAM (cue bacon excitement), caramelized onions, melted muenster, and cheddar cheese on toasted white bread. Also catching my interest are the poutine (I love me some Canada) and Caprese Melt.

The Twisted Iron

A local favorite and a personal obsession. The Twisted Iron food truck sells waffles that will hit every one of your taste buds from savory to sweet. Their waffle fries are a must-try, but you can never go wrong with their chicken and waffle with some syrup!

Full disclosure: I was invited by World of Beer for a complimentary tasting of their new summer menu. The opinions describes below are purely my own and based on my experience and observations at the tasting.

World of Beer launched their summer menu this week in conjunction with American Craft Beer Week. The summer menu will run until July 10th. I visited the Fowler Avenue location by the University of South Florida yesterday for a tasting of the menu. Here are my thoughts on my visit.

wob2

Starting off with my favorite addition to the summer menu and clearly the most involved new menu item. The Oskar Blues Peel and Eat Shrimp ($11) was an excellent appetizer that paired well with the Oskar Blues American Summer Hoppy Wit, a limited release beer made just for the summer at World of Beer, which it is steamed in.

Each piece of shrimp was enjoyable and it’s really about the beer broth which makes for a great dip and goes perfectly with the grilled garlic bread that is served with the shrimp.

wob1

The Oskar Blues America Summer Hoppy Wit craft beer is a spicy Belgian Wit hopped with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe multiple times in the fermenter.  It is a white wheat beer and 6% ABV, 55 IBU. It pairs perfectly with the shrimp and definitely fits a summer vibe. I have a sweeter flavor palate, but still enjoyed it anyway.

wob6

My second favorite item was the Summer Hush Puppies ($5) served with warm bacon onion jam, Jalapenos, and Sriracha lime aioli. They taste like a corn dog without the dog and served with delicious bacon jam pieces that will literally excite your taste buds to the max. The Sriracha makes it a little spicy so make sure you have a beverage with it.

wob5

The Colorado Chili-Cheese Dog ($5.50) was enjoyable and we preferred it over the Mac-And-Cheese Dog. This hot dog is served with a Hawaiian bread bun which makes it sweet and the chili is joined by beer cheese. It is topped off with smoked bacon bits and onions, but honestly if you get the hush puppies, throw some of that bacon jam on top of the chili dog and you will be happy that you did! Promise.

Hot dogs are $3.99 on Mondays until July 4th for those of you looking for a deal.

wob7

The Pimento Cheese Stuffed Cherry Peppers ($5.50) were also something we enjoyed quite a bit. These can be a bit overwhelming so I recommend sharing them with a larger party. The inside gets lost a little because the outside packs so much flavor and these are not a bad refreshing started to a summer meal or a snack while you have some beer. World of Beer recommends pairing them with a Kölsch beer.

There are variety of other things that were added to the summer menu that you may enjoy depending on your taste. These were just some of our top choices on the list. Overall, the new summer menu at World of Beer has promise and is worth a look if you’re looking for something different.  Happy American Craft Beer Week and happy drinking!

Recently I discovered Cafe Organic at Chuck’s Natural Fields Market in Temple Terrace. Cafe Organic is a quick-service sandwich and juice shop inside the health food store that offers a variety of healthy food items at a fair price. After visiting some other places in town I was really impressed with how affordable the organic food is at Chuck’s and have become a regular there.

The market has been there since 1992 and I’m not sure about the age of the cafe, but they seem to do little to know advertising so I had no clue they existed. I have become a fan of their smoothies and sandwiches though.

Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken Salad Sandwich

The Chicken Salad Sandwich ($7.99) and features organic chicken, Veganaise, walnuts, and celery with a choice of toppings. You can get a half sandwich with chips for $4.49 or soup for $7.99. The chips make it a great deal and an awesome, healthy choice for lunch. A half sandwich is enough to get me full, if you get the full sandwich – you can save half for later.

I have also tried the Middle Eastern Sandwich ($7.99) and while I loved the hummus it wasn’t super filling. Definitely a good option for people who are against having dairy or meat though. I would probably throw the hummus on another sandwich though in the future.

I tried a sample of the egg salad today and it was excellent. I will definitely be ordering that in the future.

Green Fields Smoothie

My favorite smoothie I have tried so far is the Green Fields Smoothie which costs $5.49 for a 12 oz. and $6.49 for a 16 oz. drink. The drink consists of organic apple juice, spirulina, kale, papaya juice, and bananas. The overall flavor for this drink is the most balanced in my opinion. I have also tried the Carob-Peanut Butter Swirl and Passion Plus and liked both, but prefer the Green Fields.

chucks3

Cafe Organic also sells juices and the only one I have tried so far is the Carrot Ginger “Blast” which has carrots, celery, cucumber, and ginger. It costs $4.99 for a 12 oz. and $5.99 for a 16 oz. drink. These are a little harder to drink if you aren’t accustomed to juice blends. The barista today told me her personal favorite drink is the Apple Carrot “Rejuvantor” which I have yet to try, but is now on my list to try.

Beyond these things, Cafe Organic sells health booster shots, homemade soups, organic salads, and organic steamed vegetables. If you’re looking for something healthy to eat and are on a budget definitely check out their menu and see what they have to offer. The shop also offers a rewards card for smoothies and the store itself has a few sales which you can find out about on their website.

Cafe Organic also has a branch over in Brandon for those of you on the other side of town. Overall, I’m impressed with the options and prices at Cafe Organic and the service is always friendly when I stop by. They are open early and serve food for most of the day. You can also call-ahead your order for lunch in order to avoid waiting in line.

Check it out!

Full disclosure: I was invited to the The Sail for a complimentary tasting of their new lunch menu in exchange for my opinion. The opinions written below are my own and represent myself based on my visit and impressions of the food and atmosphere.

The SAIL on the Riverwalk recently contacted me to come and visit for a tasting of their new lunch menu. My family regularly stops at The SAIL when we walk along the Riverwalk for a drink, but we have never dined there before so I was interested in checking it out.

Great view at The SAIL

Cocktails at The SAIL

 

I’ll start off by saying that I really enjoy the drinks at The SAIL, they are of the juiced and fruit kind and taste good, while still having a good amount of alcohol in them. The drink pictured above is called The Sea Foam ($10) and it is my favorite on the cocktail list made with Malibu Banana Rum and a mix of juices. They also carry beer for beer fans and have Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 5PM-7PM. I also sometimes visit The SAIL for Brews and Bites which features food trucks and live music on the 2nd Friday of each month.

It can get extremely hot outside in Florida in the summer, but there is a good amount of shade inside the The SAIL and all you need is a bit of a breeze to enjoy your visit there.

For lunch I ordered a grouper sandwich ($15) and 2 appetizers: the steamed shrimp ($10) and the calamari ($10). Most lunch entrees on the list start at $10. Kids menu options are also available.

Calamari at The SAIL

Starting with the calamari. I have to say this calamari was perfectly crunchy and exactly what I want in a calamari. Some places have soggy calamari or no real flavor to the seafood. You could taste the freshness in this calamari though and although you can find calamari on most menus in restaurants, there are few places I would order it from to being disappointed so many times. The SAIL had a great calamari though and I would definitely order this one in the future.

Steamed Shrimp at The SAIL

The steamed shrimp is one of their newest additions to the menu at The SAIL. It was enjoyable and although I will admit I am not the biggest fan of shrimp – I did enjoy this appetizer and the sauce went well with it. The shrimp and the calamari were both filling so I would probably choose one in the future – but I tried both during my visit so I could get a closer feel for what I would order in future visits. I feel like both taste good and it just depends on whether you look shrimp or calamari more.

The Grouper Sandwich at The SAIL

The grouper sandwich was delicious and not badly priced at $15. It wasn’t heavy and hardly needed any tartar sauce. The chips that came with it are about what you would expect at any seafood spot. I would definitely order the grouper again in a future visit to The SAIL. It is quite filling as well which I note for people who maybe do not have a big appetite.

The SAIL on the Riverwalk

All in all, The SAIL makes for a great lunch spot due to its incredible waterfront view and large drink selection. The seafood is solid and not badly priced. Seafood is one of those things you can’t expect to get at a cheap price if you want good quality.

I would definitely dress for the outdoors if you’re going to visit as well. There is parking located right next to The SAIL in front of the Tampa Convention Center and the Riverwalk is right there so the spot is easily accessible in Downtown Tampa.

I recommend The SAIL and look forward to visiting again soon for some drinks and lunch with some friends.

Oliver Heldens, one of the top EDM DJs in the world, is rocking the house at Shephard’s Beach Resort in Clearwater on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. Last year Oliver Heldens on the main stage at Sunset Music Festival and was one of my personal favorites. Doors OPEN at 8PM. This event is for ages 21 years and older. Tickets are now available on Eventbrite and start at $20. The event is being promoted by Debacle Entertainment.

One of my favorite mixes by Oliver Heldens:

Artist Bio:

At the mere age of 17, Oliver Heldens was signed to Spinnin’ Records, the most renowned label in dance music. With the release of his hit single “Gecko” in 2013 he reached the #1 spot in the UK chart, a #2 spot in Beatport’s top 100 and it held the #1 spot on the Deep House chart for over a month.

After the success of ‘Gecko’ Oliver hit the UK Charts again with ‘Koala’ followed by collaborations with Sander van Doorn, Zeds Dead and Shaun Frank to name a few. He has established residencies at two of the most prestigious nightclubs in the world – Omnia in Las Vegas and Ushuaïa in Ibiza.

Now just a few years after his first record deal, Heldens who was already named ‘Artist to Watch’ by Rolling Stone launched his own record label Heldeep Records and revealed himself as HI-LO, who is responsible for the first release on Heldeep Records. We can reinsure you that this 20-year-old has a long music career ahead of him and he will continue to bring a unique, refreshing sound that bridges the gap between EDM and the underground.

Set times:

8PM-10PM: Kid U Not

10PM-11:30PM: LENNO

11:30-1AM: Oliver Heldens

1AM-Close: Resident Brandon James
