Orlando Restaurant Week Starts This Week!

Mitchell's Fish Market's Carrot Cake
I love when Orlando Restaurant Week comes around every year. It gives us diners on a budget a chance to try upscale restaurants' food and drinks for a portion of the price! Plus there are lots of mid-priced restaurants that are participating in this year's event, from May 3 - 12.

Basically, the 30 or so eateries are offering special prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner. So, for $10 or $15, you may get an appetizer and an entree for lunch or dinner. For $25 or $35, top restaurants like Morton's Steakhouse and Taverna Opa give diners a scrumptious appetizer, entree, and dessert. 

For example, Oceanaire Seafood Room's $35 prix fixe dinner features a choice of Fried Red Chili Calamari, Buffalo Shrimp, Clam Chowder, or House Salad for starters; Grilled Ecuadorian Swordfish, Prosciutto-wrapped Snapper "Saltimbocca", Black and Bleu Filet Mignon and Cashew Crusted Ecuadorian Mahi-Mahi for entrees, and Cheesecake, Chocolate Cake, and Key Lime Pie for dessert choices. At what other time would one possibly get to try all that delicious food at Oceanaire for $35?

K Restaurant uses produce and herbs
from its own garden!
Among the participating restaurants this year are: K Restaurant, The Rusty Spoon, The Blackwater Bar-B-Q, Dylan's Deli, Treasure Tavern, Mitchell's Fish Market, Copper Canyon Grill, Fleming's Steakhouse, and 310 Park South. For the first time, The Food Truck Bazaar will also be participating!

Orlando Restaurant Week is not to be confused with Orlando Magical Dining Month, which comes around every September.
