It's been a long time coming, but Duck & Drake Kitchen, the powerhouse pop-up stationed outside of Digress Wine in College Park, is getting a permanent space.

And not a parking space.

Owners Heberto and Rona Segura will open The Drake on the ground floor of the downtown Radius Apartments (355 N. Rosalind Ave.) early next year.

The nearly 2,400-square-foot space will take on a modern and "urban cool" aesthetic, and will feature a bar with an "innovative" beverage program. So expect a focused wine list centered on small family wineries along with "playful" and "innovative" cocktails. The beer list will feature a selection from Orlando's best brewers.

Heberto Segura says The Drake's menu will be similar to the rotating, seasonal, global tapas offerings at Duck & Drake, but offer elevated plating and higher-end ingredients.

The restaurant, he says, will seat between 140-155 people, but that could change.

And what of the food truck parked at Digress Wine in College Park?

"Not only is Duck & Drake staying [at Digress], but we're going to ramp things up, and it starts this Monday," Segura says. Duck & Drake will be open seven days a week, with the full menu offered from the truck Wednesday to Saturday, and a limited menu offered from the Digress kitchen Sunday to Tuesday.
