Orlando's Best Eat up at the Bar Locations.
I really want to try Ravenous Pig with my husband, the problem is, the industry he works in means he could get called to leave tomorrow. I tried reservations and had to cancel. It's not near my work for a lunch option, but how is the bar? Can we come in for dinner and sit up at the bar and order food? how busy is it?
What are some other Orlando Foodie, sit up at the bar locations. We are sorta newly married (year and a half) couple without kids and enjoy sitting up at the bar
As I sometimes travel solo to Orlando I have eaten at the bar at Tchoup Tchoup and enjoyed it very much. I sat at the one facing the kitchen which was very interesting. I also have had wonderful meals at Primo, the Melissa Kelly restaurant at the JW Marriott. Do not fear tourists here, mainly business people and foodies.
I often go to Tchoup Tchoup and sit at the bar facing the kitchen. The kitchen staff is very friendly, I have noticed the last two times getting a few droplets of water splashed on me from the overhead fountain (especially from the far left seats), that is a bit disconcerting.
Primo is serving fabulous food these days, they have a new chef du cusine who is showing off some his international background. It is an expensive restaurant, but the portion sizes are ample so that fact can be used to keep costs down. All the pasta's can be ordered half servings.
Both Tchoup Tchoup and Primo are opentable and both validate parking.
TRP is a great eat at the bar location. I've been doing a lot of bar happy hour specials at Mortons, Flemings, The Palm, and Ocean Prime lately. Flying Fish, Califorinia Grill (as for shushi or chef counter) and Jiko at disney have good setups for eating at bar.

at ocean prime happy hour ends at 7. delicious apps and drinks for $6 or $7 dollars, pretty swanky atmosphere. Mortons and The Palm (no discounted drinks at The Palms happy hour, but they do validate parking) happy hour stops at 6:30 and 7 respectively, but both start back up at 9pm. The palms apps are an amazing $3. 50 but they are only on weekdays (not sat sun) .
Flemings happy hour is 7 days a week and ends at 7. drinks and apps for 6 -7 dollars. And they have the flemings prime burger on the list, a great burger for a great price.
BTW all but Flemings are on opentable.
Roy's, Emeril's and Emeril's Tchoup Chop also have eat-at-the-bar seats. Luma on Park might also. Spice in Winter Park, too.
