Black Bean Deli No. 2 just opened today! Here’s a look inside


Black Bean Deli, a longtime Winter Park favorite, took over a larger space at 1835 E. Colonial Drive last year, formerly Vega's (and before that a garage, apparently). We've been anxiously awaiting the restaurant's opening – partly because when we interviewed Jason Gregory (whose Makr Studio designed the interior) a year ago, he already had a fantastic inspiration board going; partly because it's just two blocks from Orlando Weekly and we are big fans of BBD's picadillo. Today was the first day of their soft open; grand opening is next week, but if you just can't wait, head down tonight or over the weekend. ~jby
