We told you HERE in January 2024 that a new restaurant called ÔMO by JÔNT (Website) would be opening in the former home of Sushi Pop at 115 E. Lyman Avenue [GMap] in Winter Park. Well, they’re taking reservations for this weekend.

Bungalower was invited to attend a recent media event at the latest concept by award-winning chef, Ryan Ratino, who is behind the Michelin-starred Bresca (Website) restaurant and two-star concept, JONT (Website). Be sure to watch our video at the end of this post.

The new 15-seat restaurant was designed by Make Design Studios (Website), the group behind Soseki, Camille, and Zaru, and will feature three dining areas that guests will move through during their dining experience; the Living Room where they will enjoy snacks and champagne, the Savory Counter for beverages and dishes prepared over an open flame, and the Pastry Parlor for sweets and mignardises/petit four.

The name is a derivative of Omotenashi, the Japanese word for “hospitality,” that goes beyond simply being helpful, but rather providing more care than is expected.
