Every time I'm in Orlando visiting my husband's side of the family, we drive by Ethos Vegan Kitchen. I'm the only vegetarian so we end up at other restaurants when we're out with family. But this time, after a very long Florida trip, I was craving a solid vegan meal--I go vegan during the week. Given that it's difficult to find vegan options at most restaurants, when I travel, I chuck veganism out the window, and am just happy when I can find non meat options.
We arrived close to 2pm and had to wait at the bar because the room was packed. I love that a vegan restaurant is packed for lunch during the week. Our table was ready in a few minutes and I ordered the chickpea salad sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy, and my partner ordered chickun gyro. Both were very good. I couldn't stop "mmmmMmming"
I was so happy with my order that I made us share the Ethos sundae for dessert even though I was full. So yummy. I nearly got a couple of cookies on the way out but thought that might be overly decadent. Next time. And there will be a next time. Every time I'm back in Orlando, I will be having at least one meal at this restaurant. You don't have to be vegan to love good food.

Quick service restaurant in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Specializing in fresh crepes made to order. Local craft beer, wine, and mimosas available.
We looked for this place based on reviews. Only been there once. With a suggested menu and substitutions encouraged, this counter service restaurant ALMOST offered too many options. Sorry I held up the line. Awesome results. So many options, so many flavors...endless combinations. Fresh! Will look up to see if a chain exists. Definitely should be. Will definitely return next time in Altamonte Springs.

In the authentic Italian tradition, we select our simple, whole ingredients and combine them by hand with heart, using the time-honored method of open flame cooking. We utilize the intense heat of our wood burning ovens to lend unique flavor to our food. <br>From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.
I have not always been happy with restaurants that have sprung up in mini-strips along 17-92 but this is a wonderful exception. First the parking lot is not immediately evident. The entrance is South of the strip of mostly restaurants--the drive way north of the strip and just before the Walgreens goes into the Drug Store's parking lot--but there is was walk way between so if you miss the first one. The main entrance is here behind the restaurant and on the nice size (if a bit confusing due to it's one way entrance due to the bank's drive thru) parking lot. The restaurant has a long and rambling seating set up and the décor is lovely, while the food is generous in portions and enjoyable---and more than a few steps above your "usual" Italian restaurant. Oh and the staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. They do lunch and dinner so you can try them for lunch and/or dinner. For the vegetarian out there are bunches of salads, 2 types of Calazone, 1 flat bread and 4 different pastas without meat

Comfortable casual table service restaurant with high-end local fish & seafood. Lots of choices, from scratch made sides & preparations to fish choices that fit the needs of any seafood lover. Open kitchen dining room and lots of temperature controlled outdoor seating to enjoy the wonderful Florida weather!
Winter Park Fish Company lived up to their Trip Advisors Review. We went there for a Saturday lunch. Easy parking, no wait for a table outside. And the food and service were both excellent. The waiter had recommendations about the freshest fish- what was brought in that morning. We followed his recommendations for the swordfish and the grouper, as well as the preparations. Both of us had one of their types of seared recommendations. The fish was incredibly fresh and well-prepared. Grouper was outstanding. Swordfish was great- (I just forgot that I don't like swordfish!) but it was still fantastic.
Three standouts about the restaurant- 1) They offer a fixed menu, but then have multiple fresh options dependent on what they get that day. (I wanted the tilefish, but at 11:45 AM they had already sold all 10 filets they had!). 2) They have a myriad of preparations available- sautes, sears, pan fried, panko, etc. Everyone should be able to find a preparation they enjoy- I think it is important to listen to the recommendations, as some preps don't fit certain fish. 3) They also have many sides to choose from.
2 things to improve- 1) We both could have used more sauce. (You also get to customize sauces, and they are delicious- just tiny servings). 2) I am still searching for a great seafood soup in Orlando. Here I tried the clam chowder. It was fine, but not worth an order. And honestly, disappointing for the caliber of food coming out of this kitchen.

Amazing, European style chocolate and authentic Italian gelato (ice cream). Our hand-made, gourmet chocolates are made fresh daily by our skilled team of chocolatiers. We also offer chocolate parties - great for vacation fun! We're located on Park Avenue in beautiful downtown Winter Park, Florida (Greater Orlando area). Locally owned and operated by husband and wife team Kevin and Jami Wray.
Da wife and I flew down to Winter Park for the excellent Arts Festival. It’s in Central Park which runs several blocks along Park Ave. Park has more excellent stores, shops, restaurants, bars than you can imagine. One of those is Peterbrooke. Wonderful chocolate goodies, ice cream and more. Here’s a helpful hint: They have a container of chocolate covered popcorn samples in the front, right of the store.
They have a room in the back where people are creating chocolate masterpieces (including dipping wine bottles). If you’re really convincing when you lean up against the glass window you can make the employees crack up (don’t lick the windows ).

Stopped here to enjoy a gourmet baked good before dinner, so I️ wouldn’t ruin my appetite. The pastries here are delicious and the coffee is wonderful as well.

Jazz Wine Bar . Live Jazz five days a week. Serving Tapas style menu and Wine and Beer. Sunday Brunch specials.
I love visiting Jazz Tastings. The venue is relatively small which allows interaction between performers and guests. The music is always good and, if Olyvya Kelly is singing then you are in for a really fun night.
Best to reserve a table in advance unless you want to sit at the back by the bar.

Luma's private dining room, The Cellar is a lavish, exclusive room that can seat 48 people and is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment ideal for major events, from corporate gatherings to wedding receptions.
We visited Winter Park for a getaway weekend and loved the town. It is charming with lots to do - museums, lake tours, shopping and lots of restaurants. Luma has lots of competition yet it really shines. The service was impeccable with a charming young woman who was very knowledgable. She was training another young woman and we enjoyed them both. My husband had the egg pasta bolognese. The pasta was very thick and different but delicious. I had the flank steak that was perfectly cooked and served over the best polenta. We skipped dessert as there are several nearby ice cream shops!! The restaurant has a few outdoor tables with heaters (it was cool when we were there) but the inside is very modern and very elegant. I do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. This is not an inexpensive restaurant.

Always a friendly greeting from the host Neema when entering the restaurant. He promptly acknowledges us and has a booth for us when requested. Our server Matthew is fantastic and very courtesy and explained any questions we may have concerning the menu. Flat breads are a must particularly the Pesto chicken and mushroom breads. The lollipops lamb chops are excellent and Scrimp scampi. Would highly recommend the Organic field green salad with pumpkins seeds and granola. Desserts are great. Never had any issues here as the food and staff are outstanding. Had a Valentine dinner here last month and was outstanding. Highly recommended .
