Cru Quarters at The Mayflower

We recently dined in a bit of a unexpected location, Cru Quarters at The Mayflower, this is a lovely restaurant located in a high end senior living community in Winter Park Florida.

We became aware of this restaurant because we knew chef Patrick from his previous position at Antonio's Maitland. I've continued to follow his culinary posts on social media over the years and they are always impressive. 

I assumed that Cru Quarters was a private facility for residents, but it turns out it's open to the public, and you can make reservations on Open Table. They've been open to the public for about 8 months and lots of folks are coming in for Bite 30.

We arrived at opening time, 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday and there was not many guests around except the staff. Very nice building and dining room, pleasant environment, clean and new. They have a full bar and many creative cocktails and a good wine list.
