Living in Winter Park now for 35 years, I love to find locally owned restaurants to enjoy great meals in the Orlando area. Everyone knows about the chain restaurants and the huge restaurants frequented by tourists on International Drive and by the theme park attractions; but what about those small little places hidden away for local residents. I enjoy the places where the tables may be crowded together and not super fancy, but the food keeps you coming back. There is just something about finding a little gem that most people haven’t heard of that I love.
Knowing the area so well, I am regularly asked by newcomers for recommendations on where to eat. Whether it be recommending a new resident to a hidden gem or taking a client out for lunch to discuss our Orlando, Florida Property Management Services, I love connecting people with local businesses. I would not say I am a “foodie” by any means, but do on occasion go out to eat and feel that I am probably your average customer looking for decent food at an affordable price. More years ago than I would like to admit, I had three growing kids and when my schedule was too hectic to cook on a particular day, my husband and I had to find a restaurant serving quality food at a reasonable price.
In case you missed it, Orlando Weekly recently posted an article about small local restaurants. I plan to visit some of these as well as share my experiences with other great local restaurants. With that said - I will be your “Guinea Pig” on some of my upcoming restaurant stops and a regular at others.
I look forward to you joining me on this adventure and helping you connect more to the local Greater Orlando, Florida market.
