Dining in Orlando

Having lived in Orlando for eight years now, I'm not only a huge fan of our unique and eclectic restaurant and bar scene, but am always up for trying out new places. Whether you're a local here in Central Florida or visiting on vacay, I highly suggest thinking outside the "theme park and International Drive box", and venture into town to check out some great spots. 

5 New Restaurants to check out in Orlando

Dining in Orlando is fun, especially when there are always new eateries opening up around town. The usual itinerary for your night out on the town can get old after a while, so here are some suggestions to spice it up. These are all new additions to the city, so you'll get to enjoy the exciting atmosphere and some dishes or drinks you've never tried before. Be sure to think about renting a Party Bus in Orlando if you're going to be drinking with friends and hopping from one destination to the next. 

The H Cuisine
West Orlando
This restaurant is serving a Mediterranean inspired menu in a luxury steak house setting. The open kitchen makes dining here just as entertaining as it is satisfying. They have really mastered the art of presentation along with making an inviting atmosphere for groups. Wait until you taste the food!

Tin and Taco
South Downtown
With options like the brisket bomb burrito and mac attack, you can choose to think outside of the box or fall back on favorites like tacos and nachos. You'll notice the quality of their brisket because they cook it in house. They offer craft beer and craft sodas for purchase here!

JINYA Ramen Bar
Thornton Park
There are a ton of options for vegans and vegetarians to choose from here. It's a small space inside so it's not the best for huge groups, but you can't go wrong with a dinner with your partner or friend here. Their mini tacos are a fun take on the usual pork buns you find at Korean restaurants, and you can add a lot of different ingredients to customize your ramen selection.

Grape and the Grain
Park Lake / Lake Highland
There's an outdoor covered patio and deck area where they host live music and have games available. They don't have a ton of food options available outside of their charcuterie board, but local food trucks visit regularly, too! They rotate craft beers and have a ton of wine options for those looking for a good selection. 

Bites and Bubbles
Park Lake / Lake Highland
Are you a big fan of wine and cheese? This new wine bar will make you feel as though you're sitting in a cafe in the heart of Paris. They have some unique champagne cocktails and quality dishes like escargot and a chocolate souffle. We love the modern industrial feel of this destination, and there is sure to be a wine that stands out to you on their huge menu.
