Belgian – French Fine Dining

Lamb entree, Nouvelle Cuisine in Spring Hill

Way back in 1999, a couple came to Spring Hill and opened a restaurant. That restaurant is called Nouvelle Cuisine.

Housed in a quiet, unassuming stretch of shops set off Spring Hill Drive, its unassuming exterior belies what delights are inside.

Owners, Chef Jan Kinds and his wife, Isabelle Roos, hail from Bruges in Belgium. Kinds learned his craft growing up in the family restaurant in his native Belgian town of Bruges and specializes in delicious Belgian and French cooking like Coquille St. Jacques, Dover Sole and Steak topped with traditional Belgian sauces.

Close to the SunCoast Parkway bicycle trail in Brooksville, there’s a small olive grove where you can find some truly fine fresh olives and olive products.

The 5-acre and some, spread is the domain of Cambren and Deirdre Davis, a couple who fell in love with Italy when they vacationed there a few years ago.

Good Food: Richie B's Brick Oven Pizza

Richie B’s Brick Oven Pizza is located on Mariner Boulevard just north of Northcliffe Boulevard in a small strip mall next to Suncoast Credit Union. It lists pizza and other menu items on the front window with large letters.

The owner is Richie B and he is an experienced restaurateur who didn’t find retirement all that much fun. Richie would rather be cooking up a pie and taking care of customers at his pizza place in Spring Hill.

What’s Cookin’?

A home-cooked meal can rival the best restaurant in town in price and taste. Sundays are Italian night at our house. We start the gravy simmering at 4 PM and have an authentic Italian dinner ready by 5, so the kids can get to bed early. Gravy has a meat like sausage or ground beef, whereas sauce does not have meat.

The Copper Kitchen — a less than traditional beauty on wheels ready to drive your tastebuds wild

The Copper Kitchen in Spring Hill

The Temptations singing “My Girl” filled the air in and around Rodney Jones’ The Copper Kitchen food truck and customers relaxed on nearby picnic tables beneath brightly colored, windsails as Jones prepared their dishes.

This is no ordinary lonchera. This food truck doesn’t move. It’s more an eclectic outdoor restaurant that happens to serve food from a truck — a very distinctive truck.

Deli World a traditional deli in Brooksville

Located just west of downtown Brooksville there is what you could call a little hole-in-the-wall deli that is worth checking out. Some of my favorite haunts are the modest hometown eateries that serve up a good meal without the attitude of pricier more upscale establishments. As the name implies, Deli World serves deli fare including soups, sandwiches, and salads at very reasonable prices.
