Day 33 – Park Place at Heathrow – The other side of H E Thomas Parkway in Lake Mary
Here’s a view at Park Place at Heathrow in Lake Mary, FL, “the other side of H.E. Thomas Boulevard” facing the Colonial Town Park side.
Many of you will know this side because of Fishbones, my favorite seafood restaurant in the area. Unfortunately they raised their prices but they are still excellent and worth it, just not as often as I would like to.
Here’s a list of all current restaurants/eateries and bars at Park Place at Heathrow:
- Fishbones (As mentioned, best $eafood! You must see the patio! Wonderful and perfect for a nice Florida evening)
- Terra Mia
- Moe’s Southwest Grill
- Cigar Bar (Ladies Night on Thursdays, seems to be the the favorite day for Ladies Nights because Dexter’s and Liam Fitzgerald at Colonial Town Park have those, too)
- [The New European Dessert Place] (Just opened; will find out more soon and post!)
- Applebees (watch out for their Karaoke Nights)
- Shan Japanese Restaurant
I hope some more restaurants/bars fill the 2 empty spaces where Spice (yes, Spice of Winter Park and Lake Eola had a location here in Lake Mary) (formerly Harvey’s Bistro) and Wine Down (formerly Urban Flats, also has a location in Winter Park) used to be. It’s a great location here and it’s often overlooked by Colonial Town Park at the other side of H.E. Thomas Blvd., I think mainly because there are just more restaurants, bars and the movie theatre there and it keeps the small town fleir better than the rather regular looking plaza of Parkplace at Heathrow. Having said that, I want to point out though that Park Place at Heathrow offers entertainment, food and drinks that are just as good as their neighbors’ at Colonial Town Park. Therefore, our next night out in Lake Mary will be here. I think I’ll start with some light appetizers at Fishbones, a delicious dinner with fine Italian wine at Terra Mia, then have a small (yeah right!) dessert at the new dessert place before we end the night with some signature martinis (and a cigar for the boys) at the Cigar Bar 🙂
Please note I didn’t include any other businesses located at Park Place at Heathrow, but will mention them at a later point. In case you want to add another bar/restaurant here, please post a comment below and I will add it!
