Thoughts on Norman's and Primo [Orlando]

  • 3

We will be in Orlando in a few weeks. Any suggestions on specific dishes would also be greatly appreciated.

  1. I've not been to Norman's in a long time, but I see my two favs are still on the menu and both of these are fantastic:

    PAN COOKED FILLET OF YELLOWTAIL SNAPPER
    Asparagus Spears ~ Citrus Butter Sauce ~ "Belly" Of Garlicky Mashed Potatoes

    RHUM AND PEPPER PAINTED GROUPER
    Mango Mojo ~ Cuban Sweet Potato Mash En Poblano

    I actually bought his cookbook and now make these at home as well on a regular basis, always big hits. I would post one of my photos but would probably do a disservice to the professional presentation. :-)

    I've been to Primo - but only in Maine, and in June - so I can't say what's good in Orlando as (I believe) much of the menu is locally sourced and seasonal.

      Yes, they Yellow Snapper is delicious! I haven't been in a long time but I do remember that dish.

    2. Any other thoughts on the food or the wine lists ?
