The Drake


The Drake, a highly anticipated new restaurant, has finally opened its doors in Orlando after gaining a loyal following as a popular food truck. With its brick-and-mortar debut, The Drake brings its signature flavors and creative cuisine to a new level. 

We started with the mushroom meatball appetizer, it had an interesting flavor. Very rich, maybe a little salty for some. Good in small amounts. 

Next we had the Winter Greens Salad - Roasted Local Squash, Kale. Pumpkin Seeds, Feta, Tomatoes, Red Onions. Honey Sherry Vinaigrette $15. It was excellent, well mixed and good combination of flavors.

For our main courses we opted for the Mushroom Risotto and the Duck entree. 

The Fungi Jon Mushrooms Risotto Miso Dashi was a creamy, savory delight with Siano Fior di Latte Burrate and Broad Beans adding a pop of freshness. 

Meanwhile, the Duck, Duck, Goose entree - made with Strudel, Aged Breast, Foie Gras, Pomegranate Gastrique, and Quince was a great entree with its rich flavors and textures. Each bite was a masterful combination of flavors and techniques.

We finished with dessert, I let the server make the selection, she suggested the Pavlova de Maiz Corn Husk Meringue, Local Corn Custard Brown Butter Ice Cream $12. It was a bit unique, the ice cream was good, but the Custard was not my favorite.

Overall the staff and decor were very nice and I look forward to returning.
