When the cafe closed for refurbishment, Keating took that opportunity to take over the kitchen at Urbain 40 in Dr Phillips’ Restaurant Row, and he is presently focused on giving it the same makeover.
We were invited to enjoy a tasting menu and judge for ourselves how far Chef Keating has come in his first six months in the role.
Once a year, the Orlando Weekly produces a culinary event called Bite30, that offers great prix fixe deals at select restaurants for an entire month.
From June 1-30, participating restaurants offer special prix fixe menus that offer multi-course lunches or dinners at a set price.
