A Dar-Winning New Restaurant
Local Chef, Darwin Santa Maria, will be opening his newest venture this month. Dubbed “Darwin Evolutionary Cuisine”, the restaurant will serve up the Chef’s signature ceviche, skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and other creative cuisine; as well as local artisan beers. Located at 4141 S. Tamiami Trail, the restaurant will seat nearly 100 guests and provide ample parking. Chef Darwin himself describes the concept as “fresh and cosmopolitan — the perfect blend of urban, local and global — intimate, comfortable and upscale.” Count us in!

Owned by the parent company of Boca Kitchen Bar & Market, which made its move downtown last year, the new Oyster restaurant will be less than a block away. No word yet on when the restaurant is projected to open, but you can check out the menu of their Winter Park location.
