A new restaurant offering food harvested weekly made by chefs, and a super cute new ice cream shop are opening in the Sunshine City. Here’s the scoop:
The Naked Farmer on Central
For months So Fresh’s sign sat on the 200 Block of Central Avenue. I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of those steaming zoodle (zucchini noodle) bowls. It was initially slated to open in September, but it appears plans have changed. A new sign is up on the 200 Central Avenue location: Naked Farmer.
The description promises healthy seasonal dishes made from scratch. Its set to open in February 2020. You can learn more for now by visiting Naked Farmer’s website. You can also follow the concept on Instagram.
Locally sourced food will feature heavily on the menu, according to the website.
