Richard Gonzmart spent $6 million to get the doors open at Ulele and in just about every way it shows: It is a project of prodigious moving pieces, a thousand stories — an intricate cogs-and-wheels front door made by Dominique Martinez of Rustic Steel Creations; furniture and decor elements of reclaimed Florida wood by Andrew Watson of Built in Seminole Heights; countertops made by Jeff Downing of Downing Designs and inset with arrowheads from Gonzmart's own collection. There's a thoughtful and well-priced wine list, a short array of slickly contemporary cocktails (hey, how about getting one of those orange juicers and showcasing the state's original liquid gold?), and valets who efficiently check you off a list and call you by surname. But the most exciting elements are the contemporary spins on Florida native foods: gator hush puppies, pompano and quail, homey bowls of oh-so-Florida stewed white limas and collards, and Florida-born, -raised and -slaughtered beef, all complemented by brewmaster Tim Shackton's housemade lagers.

Hours: 5-10 p.m. Sun.-Thur., until 11 p.m. Fri. and Sat.
