Fodor's Expert Review Seasons 52

$$$ Central Orlando American

Parts of the menu change every week at this innovative restaurant that serves different foods at different times of year, depending on what's in season. It's hard to believe that a chain restaurant can continue to serve healthful yet hearty and very flavorful food, yet it does. The flatbread starters are on nearly every table. For an entrée, you might have wood-roasted pork tenderloin with sweet potato mash plus French green beans tossed with bacon, a whole roasted cauliflower, or caramelized grilled sea scallops with butternut squash and leek risotto, broccolini, and lemon butter. An impressive wine list with dozens of selections by the glass complements the menu. For dessert, have mini-indulgence classics like pecan pie, rocky road, carrot cake, and key lime pie served in petite portions. Although the cuisine is haute, the prices are modest—not bad for a snazzy, urbane bistro and wine bar. It has live music nightly to boot. The restaurant gets crowded, and even those with reservations may have to wait. But the full menu is available at the first-come-first-served bar.
