Citrus Restaurant (Orlando)

I must agree with Bob on several things, yes the Bar is very good and yes I did have far better service at the Bar then the Dining Room. Yes I do belive that you most likely get more focused attention then the normal dinner, unfortunate in some ways yet not so bad in others. Yes it is on the loud side and does have to do with the materials that were selected in build out, but I think that it does add a sort of city style feeling to the place. But the Prices are still on the high side and wording does not cost anything. Like I said they show ALOT of promise and are a very respectable restaurant company with alot of history, but they still need to find their groove and hopefully sooner than later. Try the Bar first and venture into more of a comitment of dinner a little later on down the road.

I hate to say this but.......Skip it for a while until they get their act together. Also prices are a little steep for the Orlando market. I am sure that they will go down once they figure out their groove, they do show alot of promise......in the future.

Hey Bob,

There is a Jamican grocery store about one block east on 50 off of Kirkman rd that sells Fresh Goat Meat, I have purchased it there several times.
Hope this helps

I love your reviews and complete honesty, although no matter what it is Disney and will never really be authentic......

Orlando Industry Magazine Event Tonight

Hey Bob,

Will have to go check out Brix, I am assuming that it is some sort of Wine Bar with a name like Brix.

There is so much more to Molecular Gastronomy then Nitrogen and Dry Ice. There were a few sights of it at the competition, but nothing crazy. I have yet to have anything that was even close to real MG here in Orlando. I have eaten at Alinea and that is the real deal, it is a real science that must be completly understood in order to execute it properly and tastefully. I will have to get over to Baldwin Steak House and check it out, but I don't understand how MG fits into a Steakhouse Menu. We shall see,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Have you heard about anything new comming to Orlando?

Orlando Industry Magazine Event Tonight

Hey Bob it was on friday. A Bunch of friends and I went and I have to say that it was a good time. I honestly did not see the host of Top Chef there, perhaps I missed her, but overall a good event that could have been an Awsome one if they had adverstised and got the word out better. Food and Wine was FAR from fine and we did not get to sample the food from the students of orlando culinary acadmy's "top chef" event. But again not a bad event, I hope that they do it again next year with more skill...........

I have had several friends who have loved theirs. The only thing different in my case is that we are here in FL, my experience with them is in the Northeast.

Any Great Cheese Shops in the Orlando Area

I went to Harmoni in high hopes of a great selection, But honestly I was let down. I too felt as though it had been picked over, but after reviews and comments from others I think they just haven't put their whole heart and soul into creating a "Market" of sorts. I think the products they have on hand are the ingredients they use for the Restaurant, which finicailly makes good sence but does not offer a wide selection.

I can't wait for the new Whole Foods to open, from my past experiences with them in other cities their selection is top notch!

Any Great Cheese Shops in the Orlando Area

I Wish I could find a real cheese shop, one that only sells cheese and the likes. Fresh Market is not bad, but most of the cheeses are hard cheeses. I am wanting/looking for soft and semi-soft cheeses from around the world.

Hopefully someone knows a place that may be a hidden gem!

I have been surprised before, so I will keep my fingers crossed

I know about Whole foods in Winter Park, usually the selection in Whole Foods Markets are Excellent but I think that Winter Park's has Missed the Mark. Any Suggestions?

New Wine Bar near Orlando?

There are alot of new Wine Bars and Restaurants that are opening in Orlando in the near future. The problem with most of them is that they are all chain owned/operated places. They all pour/push the same wine that everyone else is selling. It seems as though no one is doing anything different here in Orlando, just spitting (excuse the pun) out the same thing. The wine room in Winter Park would be the closest thing to something different, but even they have mostly the same stuff. No one here in Orlando is willing to or even able to do something different, it's just all the same.
