Settle down, everyone. California Grill is not turning into a buffet style restaurant.

There was confusion early Monday when the New Year's Eve menu was mistakenly posted on the website for the restaurant on the top floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort. The NYE dinner includes various food stations set up in the upscale-casual restaurant, considered one of the resort's top tier venues. A spokeswoman explained that California Grill features cooking stations every year on December 31.

But a blogger who follows Walt Disney World news saw the post and ran with it, causing California Grill fans to panic.

The NYE menu has been taken down -- at least for a few more months -- and the blog post has been deleted.

Carry on.

Cedar Burger

Toni Elkhouri of Cedar's Cafe in Melbourne is among the winners of this year's Blended Burger Project, sponsored by the James Beard Foundation and the Mushroom Council.

Elkhouri's entry, Brevard's Taste of Summer Burger, was one of five to receive the most votes in the two-month competition. According to JBF, 414 restaurants from 45 states participated in the quest for a "delicious, nutritious and sustainable burger" using a blend of mushrooms and meat. Elkhouri has been invited along with the other winners to cook her burger at the James Beard House in New York on January 23, 2018.

The Taste of Summer Burger features 40 percent of Florida-grown Monterery Mushrooms -- shitaki, oyster, button and portabella -- with ground leg of lamb. It's served on an apricot and liquid smoke-glazed bun, with sour cherry mustard, basil, brie and an herb-lemon-caper walnut relish.

Cedar's Cafe's 2016 entry was also a winner. That burger featured ground beef blended with portabella, shiitake and cremini mushrooms, topped with pomegranate ketchup, banana pepper-curry mustard, tahini remoulade, balsamic onion, goat cheese, bacon, spinach and avocado.

Cedar's Cafe will offer both burgers Sept 5 through 10. “(Last year) we sold more than 2,000 burgers in two months, and we sold a little more than 2,500 burgers this year," Elkhouri said, "so we thought our diners would appreciate seeing them one more time.”

Other Blended Burger winners include Bareburger, New York City; Vintage Kitchen, Norfolk, VA; Houston Yacht Club, La Porte, TX; and The Bistro at Topsail, Surf City, NC.

Cedar's Cafe is owned by chefs Toni and Marlene Elkhouri and features a regular menu of Mediterranean cuisine. The restaurant is at 4100 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne. The phone number is 321-751-0000.

Roberti pies

Every day, Pizzeria Roberti, a new pie monger in East Orlando, features a specialty pizza. You might find braised short rib, Buffalo chicken or even foie gras pizza on offer.

Or a relatively mundane pizza bianca, as was the case when I visited. Oh well, luck of the draw, I suppose.

And the bianca was fine, just nothing out of the ordinary. The crust was New York-style thin and nicely done, and the toppings -- all white, because bianca -- were applied neither too amply nor stingily.

Eola Wine Exterior

You already know about the upcoming Taste! Central Florida -- and if you don't then head over here (we'll wait). I also want you to know about a couple of companion events leading up to Taste!

They're at Eola Wine Company the next two Wednesdays, Aug. 9 and 16. And proceeds will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank, Coalition for the Homeless and the Taste! Central Florida cause of ending childhood hunger.

It's a good way for you to participate if you're unable to attend the big event on August 19 at the Orlando Marriott World Center. Or you could consider it training.

Eola Wine Company is at 430 E. Central Blvd., Orlando. The Wine Wednesday events are 6 to 8 p.m. Just show up and pay at the door.
