I must say I rather enjoyed my brief visit to Himas Indian Cuisine, a Punjabi restaurant that opened earlier in the year. Despite its Tourist World location, adjacent to an outlet mall and across the street from the now-defunct Artegon Marketplace, Himas offers a relaxed and pleasant dining experience with welcoming service and very good food.
As with most Indian restaurants in the area, lunch at Himas means a buffet. This one is smaller than most, but it offers a well thought out array.
Chianti's Pizza & Pasta, which opened at Seminole Towne Center in 2015, will take over the former Carmela's of Brooklyn space in Longwood Village Shopping Center.

I know you’re all sitting around waiting for the start of Magical Dining Month, but you don’t have to wait for September for some great dining deals.
The third annual Main Streets Restaurant Week starts Friday, Aug. 4, and runs through Aug. 12. It highlights the restaurants in Orlando’s Main Streets districts that offer special menus and deals for the week.
But unlike MagDinMo, which features only one prix fixe option (at $35 this year!), Main Streets Restaurant Week has an array of restaurants, from casual to full service, and a variety of menu options that range from $5 to $30 depending on the type of restaurant and the menu offered.
