 Another Broken Egg Café 

Winter Park Village

Um, they had me at biscuit beignets. Hell, they had me at the mere concept of breakfast appetizers. Followed by a lobster Brie omelet, I'd say they are "inspiring eggs to excellence."

Sushi Lola’s

2902 Corrine Drive

Sushi Lola's has kind of a rabid fan base. If you've ever been there, you'll understand. I mean, their Dirty Old Man roll is almost legendary (and our F+D editor might be addicted to their stone-bowl bulgogi bibimbap).

Stefano’s Grill

7512 Dr. Philips Blvd. Ste. 80

One word: risotto. They don't make it every day, but keep an eye on Stefano's Facebook to see when it's available. Don't let the lack of risotto keep you from going, though, because the entire menu looks delicious. (Like that steak up there ... Chef Steff specializes in hand-cut steaks and chops.)



Grounding Roots Juice Bar 

710 W. Princeton St., Suite C

Offering smoothies, shakes, and juices in 16-ounce cups or 32-ounce bottles with ingredients like Swiss chard, dandelion and beets, this is a great place to get your healthy kicks.




Qarma Crêpes

12 N. Summerlin Ave.

If crêpes are your thing, Qarma Crêpes has you covered on both the savory and sweet side. Turkey + smoked gouda + apple? I'm eyeing you! You, too, Fluffernutter.



Aku Aku

431 E. Central Blvd.

If you'd rather skip the eating and get straight to the drinking, Aku Aku is for you. With more than 50 different types of rum and super-campy tiki-inspired barware, it's a fun place to meet up with your peeps after a long day at work.




Universal CityWalk

We've already covered the grand opening, but if you haven't had the chance to get out there yet, we recommend it.  In fact, it might be the perfect place to celebrate National Margarita Day on Saturday.
