Restaurant Review: Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen

Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen

It seems like new markets and restaurants are springing up all over Central Florida while other long time established eateries are closing.  So when the old Huddle House in Winter Park closed, the locals weren’t sure about the kind of restaurant, if any, that would replace it.  Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen is a welcomed venue for the Central Florida area.  The restaurant is located in the Aloma Shopping Center at the intersection of St. Andrews Boulevard and Aloma Avenue in Winter Park.

The restaurant is moderately decorated in colorful New Orleans memorabilia and includes a small, but active, sports bar.  According to one of the servers (and the menu), Tibby’s was created to honor Walter Tabony (Tibby), a life long resident of New Orleans.  I also learned from the server that Tibby’s is owned by Tijuana Flats, a tex-mex fast food restaurant chain, and that construction of a second Tibby’s was well underway somewhere in Orlando.

Tibby’s is a welcomed addition to the Winter  Park cuisine scene. Even if you’re not a fan of Cajun or creole fare, you should try Tibby’s at least once. Don’t leave without sharing an order of beignets. You won’t be disappointed.
