SOUTH BAY DINING NEWS

I never thought I’d see a celebration of the Canadian maple syrup harvest in the South Bay, but that’s exactly what will be happening at Orlando’s on the weekend of April 16. Chef Orlando Mulé moved here from Montreal and apparently misses the spring foods favored by maple tappers in woodlands dwellings called “Cabane a’ sucre” or “sugar shacks.”

Orlando’s Pizzeria & Birreria in Redondo is off to an amazing start; they opened with little fanfare three weeks ago and there are already lines out the door at dinner. They serve much more than pizza – owner Orlando Mulé lived in Quebec for years and his restaurant offers poutine, Montreal smoked meat, and other unusual items along with homemade Italian specialties.

Earlier this year, I was steered toward The Slip and A Basq Kitchen; lately, the grapevine is all about Orlando’s.

RESTAURANT REVIEW – ORLANDO’S PIZZERIA AND BIRRERIA: WHERE ITALY AND CANADA MEET, WITH DELICIOUS RESULTS

Ask most Americans about Canadian food and they’ll mumble something about maple syrup. Savvy diners might mention poutine, the Quebec specialty of French fries topped with gravy and cheese, but it’s not too likely that they’ll come up with anything else.

In the same way that New York Italian and California French cooking aren’t quite what is practiced in the old country, local ideas filtered in and new cuisines were born.

We have a very small, ultra-mini trend of Montreal-style Italian restaurants in Southern California. It began, if I’m correct, with a Canadian place called Terroni opening first on Beverly Boulevard near Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles and then in the Downtown Arts District.

LA PETITE HISTOIRE D’ORLANDO

Filippo Mulé immigre au Canada en 1960. Il est boucher-charcutier et tient une épicerie avec son frère et son beaufrère dans les années 60. Le temps passe et il se cherche une nouvelle aventure. En 1979, il achète un terrain à Boucherville, rue de Mortagne, entouré de fermes agricoles et de la nouvelle polyvalente. Orlando Le Roi des Sousmarins ouvre alors ses portes à côté du restaurant La Trattoria Buon Gausta. Sa popularité grandit sans cesse auprès de la communauté, qui en a fait rapidement son restaurant familial préféré.
