According to Urban Daddy :
“There’s a bit of old-timey-ness happening, with the Edison bulbs, the rustic herringbone floors and the flowerpot lamp. (You’ll see.) Your great-great-grandfather could’ve tossed back a few here with Henry Flagler. But you, you can grab a stool at the bar for a quick meatball sandwich, or bring a date after a long day at the beach for a casual dinner of strip steak or Mediterranean sea bass at one of the cozy orange banquettes. As for what you’re drinking: they’ve got the classics, like juleps, or take a look at the Bartender’s Choice section of the menu, with keywords in three columns: spirit, sensation and strength. Just tell them what you’re in the mood for. Late business meeting: vodka/tart/lightly spirited. First date with Brazilian model: rum/spicy/full-bodied.”


According to Sofla Nights :
“When it comes to putting together an exceptional meal, the executive chef of Orange Blossom, Nelson Maldonado believes passion is always the main ingredient. That passion began as a child when helping his mother in the kitchen in his native Country of Ecuador. After attending culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu Miami, Maldonado utilized his education to direct the catering events division of Miami’s distinguished InterContinental® Hotel. After 7 years and a culinary degree under his belt, Maldonado moved to New York City and attained a position at the Todd English established Brasserie Ça Va in Times Square, where he learned the ropes of working in a world-class kitchen. Now back in his hometown of Miami, Maldonado has composed a well-balanced menu for Orange Blossom that reflects his own unique heritage and culinary experiences.”

Orange Blossom will also offer breakfast and brunch. What’s many intriguing is a cocktail menu. In further to a rye swizzle ($14) and an orange freshness julep, done with rum and orange freshness sugar ($15), we found an offer for a barkeeper to conform we a splash regulating your spirit, sensation, and strength preferences. We’ll take a really strong/spicy/rum cocktail, greatfully ($15).”
