By this point in Orlando's culinary history, you're probably able to predict each new dish at your nearest gastropub, reel off the item number of your favorite pho without looking at the menu, and appreciate the difference between tequila and mezcal. We know you know food, but too often there are nights when the answer to "Where should we eat tonight?" is "I dunno, where do you want to eat?"
That's where BITE comes in. Whether you're looking for killer tacos al pastor or the most innovative cuisine to hit the city's tables, there are more than 250 listings of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and dessert dives in these pages – from longtime favorite spots to hidden gems to brand-new classics.
Beyond the restaurant listings, you'll find features that will help you become an even more savvy eater than you already are. Three local sommeliers talk wine we offer strategies for eating well when you've got pennies or pulling out all the stops when you're flush, and we talk to some of Central Florida's restaurant owners who are married in love as well as in business.
Food can be a gift, a privilege or a form of self-care – a way of showing love to yourself and others – and we all could use a little of that these days. Start your search for your next delicious meal in these pages. Happy eating!
