Highballs and Harvest. Orlando. Superb!!!!!

Went tonight for first time. H&H is located at the Ritz in Orlando on john young parkway, it's a farm to table southern cooking joint. I had the duck andouille gumbo. (Best I have ever had). Pig and potatoes, pimento Mac and cheese, key lime tart. All wowed with flavor,

I'll go again soon, but after one visit. The Ravenous Pig just might have been dethroned as the best Orlando area eatery....

Orlando & Clearwater/St. Pete choices

Thai Thani is in celebration, closest Thai that I know of to Disney. Been a few years, but I recall it as being average in quality.

Tampa Foodies - where are they?

How many restaurants do they have to open before you would consider them a chain?

Reunion Resort Area

The food at Reunion is quite good, but you are correct, not much else in the near vicinity. Paris bistro (champions gate) has a great quiche, they are only open breakfast and lunch. La Luce is great for dinner over near Disney. Raglan road is good for dinner at downtown Disney. One thing I definitely would recommend, google "yehaa bob". Great kid friendly sing along show at River Side ( it's free).

Best of Orlando - January 2013

Delmonico's is good, nice portion sizes and reasonable priced. Very short cab ride, walkable if you need a little exercise.

Best Pho in Tampa Bay

Not an expert on Asian cuisine, but I have had the roast duck twice at the new noodle bar and prefer the noodles and duck at the yummy house.

The Palm in Tampa, a review

I eat at the palm in Orlando frequently and find it to be good food and very good service. I stopped by the palm in Tampa about 6 months ago to eat at the bar and was flat out ignored for 15 minutes...,,

I eat at peperoncino quite a bit (I'm there right now in fact), the food has always been very good, I will say the service could be more attentive.

Orlando area top 10 - February 2012

I agree with all your reviews, it's been years since I've been to luma, and haven't tried Prato yet. Definitely have to put those two on my list.

It amazes me that the rusty spoon menu doesn't change more often, And I've had some pretty bad service issues there as well.

Couple of my favorites these days is la Luce and peperoncino that weren't on your list.

Anybody been to Cress in deland?

Orlando - Best Mexican Restaurant

I like taquitos Jalisco, But would also recommend. Taco palenque. Just downthe road in winter garden. Reasonable prices, fresh authentic food, the condiment bar is loaded withe a variety of fresh toppings for your meal , and a super nice owner to top it off, glad to say they are thinking about expanding to a second location.
