The Best Restaurants in Orlando

As a melting pot of cultures and people, there is no one way to nail down the culinary scene of Orlando. From fine-dining steakhouses to traditional Peruvian restaurants, the influence on the cuisine in Orlando is broad and continues to grow and evolve all the time. Historically, the Disney franchise played a large role in creating the dining scene by bringing in celebrity chefs to work upscale restaurants at resorts, but now renowned chefs are opening independent restaurants founded on local ingredients and fresh seafood from Florida coastlines. Many menus now center around shared plates and tapas so diners can enjoy a small bite of the whole menu. The best spots to dine in the city range from high-end chophouses on resorts to modern sushi restaurants in local neighborhoods and everything in between.
