Last week, Apollo Beach’s Landing Café, located at the Waterset residential community, welcomed Bradley Livingston to its kitchen as head chef.
Livingston, who started out cooking in Madrid, Spain, has more than 20 years of international culinary experience. According to a press release, Livingston stumbled upon Waterset while looking for a home in the area.
Growing up, Livingston lived on a farm. He and his family sold watermelons, potatoes and tobacco, and the new menu he’s developing for the café will reflect the fresh-first mentality he was raised with.
All the pastries served in the casual yet chic café are made from scratch, and Livingston hand-picks the produce offerings, the release said.
Some of the items that he’s crafted include sweet and savory crepes, his signature chicken salad tucked inside a croissant, a number of quesadillas and a Tuscan Cuban sandwich. Flatbreads and a selection of beer and wine are also in the works.
Open to Waterset residents as well as those living outside the residential community, the café operates from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 to 6 on Sundays.
