This restaurant started life on Highland Street as a local Catering Company servicing weddings, private parties and corporate gatherings. They were well known and everyone in this small town spoke highly of their personal services and great food. So Good, in fact, they expanded to a -small- Dining Room next to the catering address but, with -hugely- priced entree's. The first time I saw the menu prices, I thought it was a misprint.... Considering the venue: I always have to ask myself; are we going to enjoy a meal MORE if the same entree is priced $8-16 higher than at a competing restaurant? I suppose so, if you're paying for the gorgeous Ambiance, Tastier Food, Better Service, Larger More Efficient Bar, Better Parking, & Personal Attention - you'd probably justify it. But, I never thought you could at this restaurant.
Despite my 'opinion': after about a year, 'Saucy Spoon' then graduated with a big (financial) jump to a deserted restaurant venue in Downtown Mount Dora at 322 No. Alexander St. ~ of a eatery formally called "The Gables". Now, it's yet another year later: Family problems, bad management, staffing problems, a Summer Menu out-of-touch with the Economy?? Not for me to speculate:
Sad really, since the 'Saucy Spoon', like 'The Gables', definitely had it's admirers (Doctor's /Lawyers / No Indian Chiefs). But, in retrospect, you have to ask yourself ... Does this building carry with it..... Bad Mojo ?? Only The God, 'Mars' may know. Before 'The Ides of March' even crossed the calendar......The Saucy Spoon has closed it's doors.
