Its been awhile since I did a review on Prato in Winter Park on Park Ave. I stopped by recently for a lunch visit. I sat up at the bar. I really like the bar at places like this, especially at lunch during the week since I work full time. I was looking for good food and quick service at the bar. The bar staff was spot on! I started with the Escarole Caesar. It was prepared with fresh romaine lettuce with escarole, with fresh Lemon, Parmigiano, Anchovy-Garlic Vinaigrette. Priced at $8.5. I loved the salad. This is one of the very few restaurants in the Orlando area that makes a “eggless” Caesar style salad. It was as fresh as you will find. I could not of make it at home any fresher.
The salad was brought out super fast, maybe less than 5 min I had to wait. My main lunch entrée was the Roasted Pork Loin Panini I ordered. This great tasting warm pressed sandwich came with Blueberry Mostardo sauce, and Baby Kale, and seasoned thin slices of pork. It was priced at $13. I had reservations about this sandwich with the sweet sauce but I was blown away with how good it was. The sweet mostardo sauce mixed with the sharp cale balanced the tastiness to perfection along with the pork. It was well pressed and served warm. It was a very easy sandwich to eat. I highly recommend this sandwich. You can’t wrong with this pork Panini. This Panini came with a choice of house made fresh chips, French fries or side salad. Since I had a Caesar Salad earlier I went with the chips.
