We'll start with the bad news. Orlando Meats, the purveyor of local grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, will not be moving into the Euro Living/Cruises Only building on East Colonial Drive as previously reported. That deal, it seems, fell through.

The good news: Orlando Meats will set up shop on Virginia Drive next to Santiago's Bodega, opening the door to some collaborative opportunities between the two businesses.

But owner Edgar Massoni told me that in addition to a retail component, he's looking at the possibility of having a 22-seat restaurant in the space, a la Lombardi's Seafood. That along with some patio seating to boot.

He's trying to work through the logistics but, at the very least, Mills 50 will get a specialty meats store.

Massoni is targeting a June opening.
