It’s been a while, but Duck & Drake Kitchen, the central pop-up outside of Digress Wine in College Park, is getting permanent space.

And not a parking space.

Owners Heberto and Rona Segura will open The Drake on the ground floor of Downtown Radius Apartments (355 N. Rosalind Ave.) early next year.

The nearly 2,400 square foot space will adopt a modern, “urban cool” aesthetic, and will include a bar with an “innovative” beverage program. So expect a sharp wine list centered on small family wineries as well as “playful” and “innovative” cocktails. The beer list will include a selection of Orlando’s top brewers.

Heberto Segura says The Drake’s menu will be similar to Duck & Drake’s rotating, seasonal and global tapas offerings, but will feature a high plating and premium ingredients.

The restaurant, he says, will seat between 140 and 155 people, but that could change.

And what about the food truck parked at Digress Wine in College Park?

“Not only Duck & Drake remains [at Digress]but we are going to speed things up, and it starts this Monday,” Segura says. Duck & Drake will be open seven days a week, with the full menu offered from the truck Wednesday through Saturday, and a limited menu offered from Digress Kitchen Sunday through Tuesday.
