Who knew downtown Winter Garden had so many great places to eat. I love the Tasting Room/Chef’s Table, Thai Blossom just to name a few. I have found another gem named Alfresco. Alfresco serves up fine Mediterranean cuisine created from the finest, freshest ingredients. I also like the fact they suppoort the local growers and they purchase fresh local ingredients from the local growers community. I love the open air open dining experience that Alfresco offers. They also have a very nice open kitchen. You can even sit at the Chef’s table and watch them prepare all their well prepared dishes. All dishes have a nice presentation about them.
On this nite we had the Chef’s Signature Paella. This traditional Spanish dish has transformed over hundreds of years and has become a staple in Spanish culture. Taking on many recipe versions, I am told the Alfresco Chef’s have focused on the Coastal Mediterranean style that mixes both land and sea. I was very impressed with the Alfresco version of Paella of valencia rice, saffron, shrimp, mussels, clams, chicken, and chorizo served family style. We opted for Paella for 2 $38.00. You also get it for 1 $20, or for 4 $68. Folks its worth a visit to Downtown Winter Garden at Alfresco for their Paella. They have this dish down to a science.
