The Nauti Lobstah- Chef Mike Rumplik, Cara Oates-Rumplik, and Christine Gonzalez


I got to spend a lunch break with Chef Mike Rumplik, Cara Oates-Rumplik, and Christine Gonzalez, the owners of The Nauti Lobstah - a family and friend-owned restaurant serving up fresh New England Seafood and Southern style Catfish and prime steaks in a family-friendly setting.

I visited The Nauti Lobstah in Apopka, FL, and sat down with Chef Mike, Cara, and Christine to talk about how they decided to start the Nauti Lobstah. We spoke about the transition from working in 5 Star Restaurants and Resorts to opening their own local spot. Learn how they found their location, discovered Apopka and how they incorporated their New England seafood menu into the The Catfish Place classics. We spoke about the importance of guest service matching their high quality fresh Maine Lobster, New England Seafood, fish & premium steaks. 

I also spoke with them about what they do in their "off" hours as well as what advice they would give someone if they wanted to start their own business.
