The Crooked Spoon Gastropub is opening in Clermont at 200 Citrus Tower Blvd. If that name sounds familiar it's because the restaurant is spin off the food truck of the same name. Executive chef/owner Steve Saelg who is known for top-notch food is holding job fairs for prospective employees for the Lake County eatery, which is not too far off U.S. Highway 27 in an old Friendly's restaurant. Details are on The Crooked Spoon's Facebook page.
A colleague who lives not too far away from the new restaurant location spotted the "coming soon" sign. Buzz is that the food truck is permanently shifting into park. Saelg is a talented culinary artist and a gastropub is the kind of dining infusion Clermont needs.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
