Ortanique, a restaurant named after the fruit

Excerpts from a 3/10/11 Miami Herald article written by Deborah S. Hartz-Seeley.

Ortanique is a Coral Gables restaurant named for the little-known citrus fruit, a cross between a tangerine and a Seville orange that first appeared in Jamaica.

Cindy Hutson is chef and co-owner of Ortanique. In her orange-trimmed chef’s jacket, she even dresses the part.

She serves dishes under her signature “Cuisine of the Sun,” which lets her “use anything under the sun and gravitate toward the foods of hotter climates.”
