    Here's a list of threads I got after searching for "Winter Park" in this Florida forum:
    http://www.chow.com/search?query=winter+park&board_name=Florida&from_date=1+year+ago&search_board_id=10&type=Topic

    I strongly recommend this thread, which covers downtown Orlando and College Park, as well as Winter Park:

    If you like barbecue (and especially if you don't have access to great barbecue, wherever you're from), I strongly recommend Four Rivers Smokehouse, as long as you don't mind waiting in a long line and eating at outdoor picnic tables. It is truly the best barbecue I've ever had in Florida.

    If not barbecue, then Fiddler's Green is an awesome Irish pub with great food:

    For a dessert place in Winter Park, I have two recommendations:

    The new location of Bake Me a Cake, this great bakery that did my wedding cake:

    Or a ten-minute drive out of Winter Park, the excellent Blue Bird Bake Shop in the trendy, quirky Audobon Park neighborhood:
