A bit surprising it's taken this long, but a new restaurant will be moving into Luma's old space on Park Avenue in Winter Park and its name is Ava MediterrAegean.
The high-end concept will offer "flavors and colors of the Silk Road" similar to its sister restaurant, Mila MediterrAsian
, in South Beach, and is being described as "a celebration of splendor, freedom, escapism and joy."
Sounds like you'll get a splash of hedonism along with your branzino.
Ava, according to a press release, means "life, water, island and bird" in Greek and will feature a menu spotlighting cuisine from the Mediterranean and Cycladic Islands while infusing ingredients, techniques and philosophies that have been passed from region to region along the Silk Road.
The restaurant will aim to be the "it" spot of Winter Park and, if it's anything like Mila
, should be supermodel-gorgeous and espouse a particular type of scene promising a "vibrant atmosphere."
So, yeah, dress code.
is expected to open this fall.
