Experience ‘community’ in this beautiful Winter Park gastro bar! Established in 2017, Garp & Fuss sits inside The Hidden Garden along beautiful Park Avenue in Winter Park, Fla. A visit to the five-room, 3,800-square-foot restaurant leaves one feeling a sense of comfort that can rarely be found outside one’s own home.
For head chef Liz Zucco and general manager Nikki Nielsen, that “feeling right at home” experience is exactly what they set out to produce and add to the Orlando-area food scene. You’ll find it everywhere, from the delicious and unique food and drink menu to the cozy interior design and welcoming staff.
When Zucco and Nielsen designed the Park Avenue restaurant, they wanted to appeal to a wide variety of food-lovers, with a style not easily definable. What they built was a delicious range of food options that will meet the desires of anyone, whether seeking a full dinner entree or multiple shareable offerings.
The crispy, fried wings are available in six different sauces, from spicy to sweet. The small-plate offerings such as buffalo cauliflower, crab cake bites, poke lettuce wraps, always-reliable-and-magical macaroni n’ cheese, and more that can be enjoyed as a group. The signature “Fuss” fried chicken sandwich brings its own unique, surprising blueberry-relish take on a popular, well-known option. The “Garp” brings a little Chicago flair down to Central Florida with a mouth-watering Italian beef sandwich. Burgers, sandwiches, flatbreads, potstickers, ribs, and more fill a diverse menu ranging in nationalities, volume, and flavors. And there are vegan and vegetarian options for those wishing to steer clear of meat or other animal components.
If you’ve been to Garp & Fuss before, you know what we mean when they call themselves a community.
If you haven’t stopped by yet, come join the club. They’re always looking to add another friend, and there’s nothing better than eating and drinking with friends.
