  1. Prato is great. I've been to the Fogo in Philly and its good as well.

    Armando's looks cook, and Tasting Room is just too damn far from me (I live in SE Orlando).

    Really haven't heard of anything else.

    1. The new place from the Ravenous Pig chef's should be open - I think it's called Cask & Larder. Also looking forward to what Manny Garcia (of Manuel's on the 28th and Harvey's) does at Park Plaza Gardens when he re-opens.

      Among places already open I haven't made it to yet, my top wish list is:

      The Table
      Tako Cheena
      Sushi Pop
      Oblivion Taproom
      Bull & Bear Steakhouse
      El Bodegon
      Bar J Me
      C&S Brisket Bus

      Tasting Room is awesme and worth the drive - don't be lazy!

        The Cask & Larder will be tops on my list of places to try when it opens, but I'm also looking forward to the Rusty Spoon and the Tasting Room (which is far from me too).

        Sam, you're in for some real treats when you get around to trying Bosphorous, Hawkers, Sushi Pop, Prato, Brisket Bus, and to a lesser extent, Oblivion, which I wish I liked more than I actually do.

          I love Oblivion, what was it that you didn't like?

          I myself want to try Prato, Sushi Pop.

          Also a new one on restaurant row Peperoncino.

          Food truck wise I've heard good things about 5 Gastronomy
