Fresh from Florida: Johnnie’s Hideaway in Orlando #FreshFromFlorida
Living in Florida it’s great that I get to experience so many of the Fresh From Florida seafood and produce. You probably know I post recipes featuring items highlighted from Fresh From Florida, but it’s great when I find a restaurant that serves Fresh From Florida products. One of my favorite local restaurants here in Orlando, Johnnie’s Hideaway, has a lot of Florida items to choose from and they highlight many of them in the case when you walk in the door. They are famous for their stone crab claws which are delicious and Fresh From Florida!
Johnnie’s Hideaway is one of the restaurants from the Talk of the Town Restaurant Group that includes FishBones, MoonFish, Charley’s Steakhouse, and Vito’s Chophouse. All their restaurants use Fresh From Florida foods! We are regulars at Johnnie’s Hideaway so we have tried almost everything on the menu, including all the Fresh From Florida items.
The Florida Stone Crabs are day boat caught and hand harvested one claw at a time. Although we are about to go out of season, the stone crabs are always delicious and fresh tasting. I love that they are so easy to eat compared to many other types of crab and the meat is so plentiful.
The Florida Steamed Clams were perfectly steamed with just the right amount of garlic butter. The juices were so good we couldn’t help but soak it up with their incredible rolls.
