It's time for a Taste of Dr. Phillips. No, not the actual person; that wouldn't be palatable.
We're talking about the area of Orlando known as Dr. Phillips, which as you know incorporates Sand Lake Road's Restaurant Row. And with so many good restaurants in the area (if there weren't I wouldn't have dubbed it Restaurant Row in 1995), a Taste of Dr. Phillips starts to sound a lot tastier.
This will be the 12th annual ToDP, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Dr. Phillips Foundation, Inc. It takes place on Sunday, Nov. 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Dellagio, which is a terrific venue for an event like this.
This, of course, is a walkabout event where attendees, um, walkabout and visit the various restaurant cooking stations. Our friends from Big Fin Seafood Kitchen and The Whiskey are among this year's participants.
They'll be joined by such estimable names as Eddie V's, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion, Pharmacy, Slate, Seasons 52, Peperoncino Cucina, Vines Grill and Wine Bar, Capital Grille, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Urbain 40, Dragonfly Sushi and more.
And there will also be wine and beer to go along with all the tasty food. Also, a silent auction will be involved.
Tickets are just $75 per person with proceeds going to the many local charities supported by Dr. Phillips Rotary. You can find out more details and purchase your tickets at the official 2018 Taste of Dr. Phillips website.
