THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Beluga Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Take your pick of three dining spaces: outdoor bars and tables that bustle with a hip crowd sipping cocktails, the front dining room with two more bars and live piano music, or the back room for quiet conversation. With a sleek dark wood interior and servers dressed in black, the upscale eatery offers American cuisine and top service in trendy Winter Park Village, where competition is a half-dozen well-known chain restaurants. It’s the only one with valet parking---and Beluga caviar (market price) on the menu for diners willing to part with big bucks. But beyond that extravagance, the menu is reasonably priced for fresh trout and sea bass, lobster tails and other specialties including Prime aged top sirloin. There’s a nod to Southern cuisine with sides like sweet potato fries and Louisiana crawfish grits. Portions are generous, and we’re just as happy sharing appealing appetizers such as oysters Rockefeller, mussels with roasted garlic and sweet dates stuffed with chorizo and bacon. Diverse wines with two dozen by the glass and decadent desserts round out the experience.
