Spice Burgr is opening in Chase Plaza downtown.
We don’t know much about the restaurant other than they will serve burgers, hotdogs and shakes.
That’s all based from their twitter feed.
The folks inside the restaurant couldn’t tell us anything about the new restaurant.
Also based on their Twitter feed it doesn’t look like they will be planning many changes to the interior of the space.
Once we have more info, we’ll be sure to share.
The new pizza place is located at 116 W Church Street in the former Eternal Tap space [GMap].
They are open this week for lunch but will be open starting next week for lunch and dinner.
As we mentioned before, Chicago’s Stuffed Pizza will offer delivery and takeout as well.
They don’t have their liquor license yet, but tell Bungalower they hope to be able to serve alcohol soon.
In addition to stuffed pizza, their menu includes pastas, sandwiches, salads and thin crust pizzas.
The space they are in doesn’t have great visibility from Church street. To enter you can go around Hamburger Mary’s and enter across from the SunRail station or you can enter through the Bubmy Arcade entrance to the right of Church Street Tavern.
They have space downstairs that can be rented out for meetings or events.
There are three other Chicago’s Stuffed Pizza locations, all in Florida.
Chicago’s Stuffed Pizza in Downtown Orlando is open Thursday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m and Sunday to Wednesday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Mamak Asian Street Food is coming to the Mills 50 district.
The new restaurant will be located at 1231 E Colonial Drive [GMap].
Mamak management team member Alex Lo tells Bungalower that they will serve a mix of traditional cuisines from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia with a twist.
“We’re trying to mix a little bit of everything,” Lo said.
The menu, he says, will be mostly tapas style so you can come in and try three to four items for what you would normally pay for just one entrée.
Mamak Asian Street Food is expected to open in September.
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified Alex Lo as the owner of Mamak. Lo’s family owns the business, he is part of the management team.
SPONSORED: It’s the campaign season but that doesn’t mean campaign events have to be boring. Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Adrian Wyllie is hosting a “good ol’ fashioned meet and greet” in Orlando this weekend.
Wyllie will be there to talk about his platform, answer your questions, and address your concerns candidly in an informal, grassroots gathering.
There are two events this Saturday:
- Cask & Larder in Winter Park from 5:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m.
- Red Light Red Light in the Audubon Park Garden District from 9:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m.
Paid political advertisiment paid for by Mike Van Den Abbeel, independently of any candidate or the Libertarian party.
Developers are proposing a new Hyatt Place Hotel in Downtown Orlando.
The hotel would be located at 225 S Garland Ave at South St [GMap].
This puts the hotel on the Church Street Station complex that houses restaurants and bars, the exchange building that is becoming a tech hub and the Church Street ballroom and Orchid Garden.
The 13-story hotel would include 205 rooms, 4,312 square feet of meting space and a 461 space integrated parking garage.
According to documents filed with the City, the applicant is negotiating with the Florida Department of Transportation on relocating the southbound SunRail station to the hotel site. The current southbound SunRail station sits just south of the property even through the northbound station is on the other side of the tracks from where the hotel will be.
Hyatt Place hotels is Hyatt’s brand catering to business travelers. The brand was created when Hyatt purchased AmeriSuites in 2004. It’s comparable to a Courtyard by Marriott or a Hilton Garden Inn.

The bar/grill was located in the Chase Plaza in Downtown Orlando [GMap].
Owner Michael Lassahn told Bungalower they are working on a new location and would share once they have a lease signed.
We’ve told you about the 109-unit Lexington Court apartments being built downtown, and now we have updated renderings.
The new five-story building will be located at 315 W Concord St (btwn Lexington Ave and Hughey Ave) [GMap].
The developers are going back and forth with the City on the color scheme of the building.
In the latest round the City staff is recommending to the Appearance Review Board that:
First, there are still too many colors and too many horizontal conflicts that disrupt the vertical lines, rhythm and organization of the building facades; too many accent colors that have the same effects too. The use of darker colors at the bottom and top of the architectural bays diminishes the verticality of those bays. The orange accent color has the same effect in some in- stances. There are also too many different architectural bay color and accent schemes that also make focusing on the strong vertical lines of the architectural design difficult as well.
The staff provided an updated color scheme recommendation that you can see below.
Here’s a look at the latest renderings and color schemes for the Lexington Court apartments.
