If you happen to be free this Presidents’ Day, look no further for something to do than right in your own
backyard … at least as supper rolls arounds. Café on the Green is extending its hours for ‘Dinner under the
Stars,’ a member-inspired, casual attire event in celebration of HITS (Horses in the Sun) Ocala Winter Circuit.
This is the second evening of its kind this year hosted by Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club.
From 5 to 8 p.m., members can experience views of the lush golf course and resort-like pool area, while
savoring a custom-made meal and drifting the night away to the live musical stylings of Justin Lee Partin, who is
a Golden Ocala-event favorite.
Menu options include a sunflower seed crusted salmon served with diamond cut root vegetables and lemon
thyme risotto; a gluten-free, roasted chicken breast with white wine Dijon mustard, fresh herbs, caramelized
sweet potatoes and red onion; and a dry-aged, center-cut New York strip steak with wild mushroom ragout,
shaved, jumbo asparagus and tri-color baby potatoes.
And don’t forget to close your night with a divine piece of New York cheesecake, decorated with fresh berries
and raspberry puree, before relaxing by our cozy fire pit.
With the high volume of people at Golden Ocala this time of year, reservations are recommended. Call the Café
at 352-402-4355 or 352-629-6229.
We thank our members for the feedback that led to an event that is guaranteed to be memorable for all in
attendance. This is a great use of such a gorgeous space, especially during “season.”
Our next ‘Dinner under the Stars’ will be on March 20. Details to follow.
