Rangetsu Japanese Restaurant in Maitland

Last friday Ran-Getsu of Maitland had a sneak preview cocktail party. I stopped by and sampled some of their appetizers. They are having a soft opening with a limited menu today for locals if you call you may be able to get a reservation. They don't open formally until later this month.

One of the tastier and more interesting appetizers was sweet potato wedges in a sweet tamari type sauce. Also the beef skewers were magnificent, the beef was super tender and you could just tell this was top notch meat.

Some of the more interesting things I see on the menu are:

French Bread Cheese Gratin - Gorgonzola and Gruyère sauce baked over french bread
Cajun Edamame
Kimchi Tofu
Wagyu Kobe Steak

It'll be great to have another find dining choice in Maitland, now if we could just find something to fill the old Steak and Ale spot across the street.

901 South Orlando Avenue, Maitland, Fl 32789
Lunch Daily 11:30am-2:30pm
Dinner 4:30pm-9:30pm
Orchid Lounge 11pm-2am

Parking is behind the restaurant, turn into the circle on lake lily and valet or pass that area and parking is in the lot just past the circle.

Their website is sparse on the details right now so here is the menu:
