Mouth-watering sushi, sizzling steak and tasty tacos are all on the menu at this year’s 16th annual Taste of Downtown. Festivalgoers have the chance to experience some of the CBD’s best restaurants at this one-day event, which takes place at the Orange County Regional History Center. Artisan’s Table, known for its lunchtime crush and all-around deliciousness, is one of the featured restaurants. Another local favorite making an appearance is Gringos Locos, which has made a home for itself in the heart of downtown by whipping up some of Orlando’s favorite Mexican munchies (as evidenced by their presence all over our Best of Orlando Readers Poll). Festivalgoers with a sweet tooth can end the night with one of the Pop Parlour’s all-natural frozen pops from their ever-changing menu, which has previously featured flavors like champagne-mango and pineapple-coconut. Although admission is free, those who wish to indulge in some good eating will have to buy food tickets. These can be purchased either beforehand on the Taste of Downtown website or at the venue on the day of the event. Coincidentally, the Art in Odd Places festival, happening on the same day (see page 14), will provide attendees with ample entertainment while they stuff their bellies to capacity.
