A new German concept is moving into the former home of Neon Beach at 131 N. Orange Avenue, Suite 104 [GMap] in downtown Orlando.

Schmankerl Stub’n (Facebook | Instagram), described only as a “German Scratch Kitchen” on its socials, will be bringing German classic and modern dishes to the space. Examples of the menu have not been shared yet and a timeline for the new concept to open is also not public.

The concept is related to the ghost kitchen Dan’s Bavarian Takeout (Facebook), a tenant at the Dollins Food Hall in West Lakes.

Neon Beach was sold to new owners a couple of months ago when then-owner, Rob Bair, was focusing on transforming his Winter Park Tin and Taco restaurant into another SoDough Square pizza restaurant. In regards to selling Neon Beach, Bair previously shared with Bungalower that he had seen a drastic reduction in evening sales following the recently passed Midnight Bar Permits and that it was time to focus on projects in other neighborhoods.

  1. Wow, I’m excited to hear about the new German restaurant opening in downtown Orlando! It’s always great to see new culinary concepts popping up. I’m particularly intrigued by Schmankerl Stub’n and their “German Scratch Kitchen” description. I can’t wait to see what kind of classic and modern German dishes they’ll be serving. It’s a shame they haven’t shared examples from the menu yet, but I guess it adds to the element of surprise. Do you have any insider info on when they’re planning to open? I’m already craving some delicious German cuisine!
