Magical Dining Month, which one of the best times to explore new restaurants in Orlando without losing your shirt, is wrapping up tomorrow.

The annual event organized by Visit Orlando was extended from its initial end date of Oct. 1 because of Hurricane Irma.

So this means Thursday, Oct. 12, is your last chance to pop into one of the 100 participating restaurants offering three-course prix-fixe meals for $35.

Check out all the menus and participating restaurants here.

If you still can't make up your mind, here are a few highlights from Orlando Weekly food writer Holly V. Kapherr:

Ravello at the Four Seasons Orlando

We're not going to miss the bucatini alla Amtriciana entree and gelato di parmigiano to start.

Le Coq au Vin
Go full-on classic French with onion soup, boeuf bourguignon and crepes Suzette for dessert.

Urbain 40
We're heading straight for that braised pork shank entree with thyme-honey reduction.

Magical Dining Month ain't just for Orlando – Sanford's getting in on the action too. The pickled low-country shrimp app has our name on it.
