If you can get past the name, you’ll find some pretty good food at FK Your Diet, a Fort Myers/Cape Coral restaurant that recently opened an Orlando location in SoSoDo. It’s a breakfast and lunch eatery that features conventional dishes with creative twists served in copious portions.... Read more

Scott's Review
And just like that, Flying Fish, formerly known as Flying Fish Cafe, has become arguably the second most elegant restaurant at Walt Disney World. In my estimation, only Victoria & Albert’s offers a more upscale decor. There is still an on-stage kitchen, and instead of the tiled chef’s counter, gathering-height tables may be abutted next to the kitchen counter to affect chef tables of various sizes. Speaking of the chef, there’s a new one in charge to go with the updated decor. And Tim Majoras, pictured at top, figured he might as well go and redesign the menu. No, the potato-wrapped snapper first introduced by the restaurant’s original chef, John State, and retained by his successors is gone. I don’t think anyone will really miss it.... Read more

Epcot's revolving character restaurant. If nothing about the previous sentence sent you screaming, read on. Garden Grill is set on a rotating platform that takes the diners through a rainforest, a dessert, and plains with a farmhouse and a really annoying barking dog. The food is served family style -- no, that doesn't mean that the waiters argue with you and tell you you're not going to amount to anything. The food is in big bowls and platters to pass around. Besides a good starting salad, Disney Culinears missed an opportunity to teach about fresh ingredients. The turkey with pasty dressing and crunchy coated fish are forgettable, but the sliced steak is pretty good. So is the rhubarb and strawberry cobbler at the end of your dinner rotation. Oh, plan on being visited by Mickey, Pluto and both Chip and Dale while you eat.... Read more

I don't know what Garp & Fuss is. I don't mean the name. Well, yes, I do mean the name, too. But I also mean that I don't know how to classify it as a restaurant. The menu is kind of all over the place. There's a pasta dish right next to a schnitzel. Tacos, natch. Burgers, of course. A Cuban sandwich right above a Vietnamese Bahn Mi (though it's spelled on an online menu as bahni mi, which I thought might be a clever play on the French term bon ami, but apparently was just a misspelling because it is correct on the in-house menu)....

Sort of a cross between a general store and a public drinking establishment. So General Public. The rather casual setting belies the excellent quality of the food. The prices reflect that quality, however.... Read more

Scott's Review
The last time I had the sandwich known as the Abigail, it was at George’s Gourmet Cookie’s in a small storefront space at the corner of Lee Road and Orlando Avenue in what was then the Kmart-anchored shopping plaza. The sandwich, a take on a reuben, was revelatory. And even though it was in 2016 that I had it, that sandwich came to mind often – usually anytime I ordered a reuben elsewhere only to be disappointed in comparison. Sometime during the haze of the pandemic, George’s moved to Park Avenue, taking over the former Brandywine Deli space. Gourmet Cookies was dropped from the name, but not from the menu, and it is now known as George’s Cafe.... Read more
