Even though Mitchell’s features an upscale atmosphere and the quality of food served is top-notch, the prices are reasonable. Most entrees are $25 and below, and the restaurant’s daily “happy hour” from 4 – 7 pm offers half off of appetizers and drink specials for as low as $3. Location: Winter Park Village, across from the movie theater.
Now on to the best part of the meal: the entrees. We ordered Chilean Sea Bass, which Mitchell’s recently had certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. I have never had a more tender piece of fish in my life, and you need to order it prepared “Shang Hai style”. The scallops were prepared perfectly, as was the lobster tail. Oysters from both the East and West Coast of the U.S. were so fresh, they tasted like they had just been plucked from the ocean. All of Mitchell’s desserts – made in-house – are scrumptious. I would recommend the Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake, the 7-Layer Carrot Cake, and the Key Lime Pie.
