About Orlando, FL Restaurants
Variety, in both cuisine and atmosphere, characterizes Orlando dining. Fun, casual meals and reliable chain restaurants fill the bill for many hungry tourists. Kids especially relish character breakfasts at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and dinners at Universal’s three resorts, where folks dine in good company – alongside Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Scooby Doo, and Curious George. The International Drive and Sand Lake Road areas feature a number of chain favorites that make good stand-bys, and themed eateries abound as well, including the jungle-like Rainforest Caf and the Nascar Caf . For upscale dining, restaurants like Atlantis at SeaWorld’s Renaissance Resort and Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort serve fresh seafood and impeccable American Continental cuisine. Plus, Disney’s Lake Buena Vista area, EPCOT, Downtown Disney, and Universal Studios CityWalk promise eateries for all appetites and price ranges. Even celebrity chefs get in on the action: Emeril’s features Continental cuisine with a Cajun kick. And if you’re in downtown Orlando, take advantage of dining gems like Manuel’s on the Twenty-Eighth, located atop the Nations Bank building. Suave, monied Winter Park also features superb restaurants, including the fashionable Park Plaza Gardens.
