Been to 4 Rivers? If you have and you loved it, like most do, then you absolutely must check out The Coop! The Coop is the newest restaurant from John Rivers. The focus is on serving up that delicious southern comfort food. The food is made from scratch daily and features passed-down recipes that utilize seasonal ingredients. The menu includes an array of fried chicken options, meatloaf, oxtail stew, fried green tomatoes, deviled eggs, chicken pot pie, delicious deserts….you get it, the list goes on and on!  The Coop has been a hit since opening a couple weeks ago, make sure to stop in soon!

Farm-to-table is all the rage and there’s a super cool joint in Winter Park serving up local deliciousness. B&B Junction crafts specialty burgers using high quality local food. B&B works with local farms to use organic produce, grass-fed hormone and antibiotic free beef, free-range all natural antibiotic hormone free poultry, fresh seafood and naturally raised pork. They also bake all their own breads and buns! There’s a lot of  great sides to choose from (the sweet potatoe fries and fried pickles are just way too good), an assortment of desserts (the gluten free chocolate cake is right on the money) and craft beers to pair with your burger.

B&B is located in Winter Park on Fairbanks and Formosa and  has a super relaxed environment. The staff is incredibly friendly & welcoming. Read more about their philosophy on food!
