Fine Dining in Fruitland Park

The Rose Plantation is newly opened in Fruitland Park. The 100-year-old Pine Eden Estate is being renovated to be an upscale steakhouse. James Dwight built the home in 1917 for his wife, who hosted a variety of parties, galas, and balls as most women from prominent families did. In addition to the commercial kitchen, the restaurant now has central heat and air. However, the original kitchen will be the bar, and the porches will be used for al fresco dining. Much of the house remains the same with original windows, doors, and a fireplace. Owners John and Judy Gibson have brought in Chef Don Dunbar to organize the menu of signature steaks and other fine dining delights. Rose Plantation is located at 200 Rose Avenue in Fruitland Park.
