Orlando / Winter Park recommendation
A friend and I are driving to Orlando from Tampa this weekend and need a few recommendations. We're open to driving to any areas of Orlando.
Dinner: any cuisine with entrees under about $25. Would like to see the Winter Park area since I haven't been there is at least 10 years, but finding good food is more imporantant. anything from super casual on up, as long as it's good food.
Breakfast: favorite spots.
Lunch: more favorite spots.
Thanks in advance!
For lunch in the WP area - Chez Vincents http://www.chezvincent.com/ - or right across the street is a good bistro like rest or Dexter's http://www.dexwine.com/
If you're in Winter Park/near park ave. on a Sat. morning there's the farmer's market.
For dinner on Park Ave. there's a Turkish rest. Bosphorous - very good - can't remember the prices.
Briarpatch on the Avenue is pretty good for breakfast.
Panullo or 310 Park for lunch.
I like Cafe du France and it should be in that price range. Second the thought of Bospohorus, although might be too pricy. Also agree with Chez Vincent. I like Bosphorus better at lunch anyway. Same with Jardins du Castillon, but French.
Top names are Chef Justn's and Luma, both quite nice but priced above your range.
re: Bob Mervine
Luma's menu looks good. the prices are good...i think all but 2 entrees are above $25 so that would work. Anything you can recommend that's more on the exotic end? Bospohorus also sounds great. now if i can only find a menu.
any other breakfast ideas? definitely not limited to Winter Park.
Another idea - for dinner... Paris-Bistro wonderful food - try the mussels appetizer! We were just there this weekend. I had the veal, my husband had the duck and my mother had the lamb.. ALL of it was wonderful!... you will need reservations - nothing too fancy...Here's a little review from the Orlando Sent. critic Paris-Bistro

Scott's recommendation: Take a trip to Paris -- no passport necessary. The mussels are a must, and veal Normandy is a favorite entree. Creme brulee is the dessert of choice.
