Celebrating the achievements of five new inductees into our Dining Hall of Fame.

Prime Time

The white-jacketed servers and supper club atmosphere complement the superb seafood choices at Ocean Prime.

Royal Palm

Steak and seafood is The Palm’s bread and butter, and the venerable restaurant at Hard Rock Hotel excels at both.

In Plain Sight

Rocco’s Italian Grille is a true reflection of its chef, who runs his restaurant with a focus on family, friends and good food.

Bakery Brilliance

Modest but Mouthwatering

Mi Casa Tequila Taqueria at Rosen Shingle Creek dazzles with a chef from Hawaii who is a wizard with Mexican food.

Italian Duet

Barbara Alfano and Elisa Scarpa come from different worlds in the home country. But they strike a common chord when it comes to authenticity in their culinary creations.

Out of this World

The superb flavors at Raga will transform your view of traditional Indian cuisine.

Salad Days

When Melissa Kelly opened Primo in Orlando a decade ago, she attracted a group of culinary artists who have gone on to instill her farm-to-table philosophy in their own ventures.

Fantastic 5

Where Wood Is Understood

At Hillstone, it rules the grill and décor to perfection. The marvelous lakeside view is hard to beat too.

Grand Affair

For 17 years, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival has wowed millions on a colossal scale. Here’s how Disney pulls it off.

SoNapa, So Not

While the name is supposed to evoke places—Sonoma and Napa—known for savory cuisine, the new Maitland restaurant doesn’t even come close to them.

CHEF4U

Onetime restaurant owner Bram Fowler is now a culinary artist for hire. And he doesn’t miss his former life one bit.

History in the Making

Cuba Libre showcases the fantastic flavors of 
Guillermo Pernot’s remarkable culinary journey.

The Great Christini

For 28 years, restaurateur Chris Christini has stayed true to what made his fine-dining establishment a grand success—perfection.

Dining Partners

Before- and after-dinner drinks serve their purpose—the palate and digestion, respectively.

Tutto’s Makeover

Indian Cuisine,
Really and Truly

At Tamarind, slow-roasted spices flavor the menu, which is out of this world.

Bond 
Market

The rapport that 903 Mills Market enjoys with neighbors is enhanced by its deliciously simple offerings.

Bar-B-Q Guide

Dining critic Joseph Hayes tells you all about the best kinds of ’cue in Orlando and who is making them. But if you want to do it yourself (and good luck with that, by the way), check out smokers and grills that’ll get the job done and the difference between smoking and grilling, plus recipes, cookbooks and websites on barbecuing.
