Eat, Drink and Be Merry: Orlando's New Restaurants

During the past decade, Orlando has matured into a culinary destination, and the latest batch of restaurants to enter the market certainly bears this out. From high-end seafood, supper clubs and sophisticated taverns, to Greek, Cuban and Brazilian entries, these establishments will happily surprise visitors seeking something new and adventurous. Reservations are generally recommended at all eateries.

Pointe Orlando

The Oceanaire Seafood Room's high-energy atmosphere is reminiscent of the great seafood supper clubs of the 1930s and 1940s featuring a spacious dining room complete with traditional table-style and horseshoe booth seating. The Oceanaire offers more than 25 types of seafood and shellfish flown in daily from around the world.

Cuba LibreNewly opened in Orlando, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar is part eatery, part dance club. Dinner service focuses on modernized Cuban fare like grilled skirt steak, ropa vieja, honey-mango glazed salmon and mojo-marinated roast pork, among other highlights. However, as the evening goes on, Mojitos are poured, tables are cleared and the massive 18,000 square foot space transforms into a late-night Latin destination complete with DJs, floor shows and salsa dancing.

B.B. King's Blues Club is a supper club-style restaurant and live music venue features cuisine that ranges from ribs to Carolina glazed salmon. It showcases four full-service bars, a mezzanine level and open-air patio. B.B. King's also has three VIP rooms for private dining. Live music is performed nightly by the B.B. King All Star Band, an 11-piece house band.

Redrock Canyon Grill specializes in Southwest and American cuisine served in a casual, energetic atmosphere. The menu features fresh items such as their signature wood-fired rotisserie chicken, grilled or smoked fish, ribeye steak and St. Louis ribs.

Taverna Opa features traditional Greek cuisine and festive entertainment including belly dancing and Greek music. Specialties include tzatziki, spanakopita, kebabs and numerous variations on lamb. A family-style menu is available for parties of six or more. While lunch is served at Taverna Opa, dinner time provides a unique, lively experience as patrons are encouraged to dance on the tables and napkins are routinely tossed into the air.

International Drive

Nelore Churrascaria, a recently opened Brazilian-style Churrascaria steakhouse on International Drive, prepares high-quality beef in upscale surroundings. The restaurant features 17 cuts of beef, pork, chicken and seafood that are grilled over an open pit. These items are then served table-side by a steady stream of "Gauchos," who slice the meat to-order. A unique salad bar that includes 46 hot and cold items is also available.

At Tabla Bar & Grill, just minutes from International Drive, Executive Chef Shabber's classically innovative dishes are prepared with authentic, centuries-old recipes and are filled with fresh ingredients. Tabla's menu consists of rotating regional Indian specialties while the favorites stay constant, and every dish models a modern technique of preparation and presentation. Tabla Bar & Grill also offers a full bar serving a wide variety of fusion drinks, a party hall and a banquet facility.

Downtown Orlando

Citrus Restaurant emphasizes fresh American cuisine with a definitive Latin influence. Located on Orange Avenue, the restaurant provides a contemporary atmosphere with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. The menu includes blue crab cakes, marinated skirt steak, bacon-wrapped Maine scallops and yellow fin tuna. Operated by Urban Life Management Restaurant Group, Citrus was presented with a Golden Spoon Award as one of the "Top 20 Best New Restaurants in Florida" by Florida Trend magazine.

Metro Orlando

Tavern on the LakeReplacing the former Dan Marino's space at Veranda Park, Tavern on the Lake emphasizes fresh seasonal ingredients and an international wine list. Its menu serves indulgent, yet lighter fare such as roasted salmon, grilled quail, skirt steak, jumbo sea scallops and rack of New Zealand lamb. The wine list offers nearly 60 selections by the glass or the bottle. Tavern on the Lake has also been remodeled to include an enhanced interior color palette and re-styled ambient lighting, in addition to incorporating environmentally friendly practices such as using as recycled paper and glass products.


Serving U.S. Prime and aged Midwestern corn-fed beef, PorterHouse at the Orlando Airport Marriott thrives on generous portions and attentive, old-school service. The menu, developed by Executive Chef Anthony Hull, features 100 percent natural Angus beef that is also certified "Humane" by Humane Farm Animal Care, an independent, non-profit organization that monitors the ethical treatment of feed cattle. From a 12-ounce N.Y. strip steak or a 36-ounce Porterhouse big enough for two, to pan-seared breast of duck and grilled Atlantic swordfish, the eatery sets a new standard for hi-end steakhouses.

Located at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort, Il Mulino New York Trattoria is an award-winning Italian eatery features fresh seafood, steaks and imported ingredients. Diners may select from wild mushroom risotto, grilled ribeye steak or tortellini alla panna, among many other classically prepared dishes.
