I looooove this time of year! I swear I diet to have a summer body, and then in August I go into hibernation eating mode. Why? Because of Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining season! It used to be only one month, but by popular demand, they kept extending their dates! This year it will be starting August 27th. and running all the way up to October 3rd.
According to their website
“Orlando’s gourmet dining scene takes center stage once more thanks to Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining®, running from Aug. 27 through Oct. 3, 2021! Now in its 16th year, the wildly popular culinary event features top Orlando-area restaurants offering three-course, prix-fixe dinner menus for just $37 per person — including many options for open-air dining and takeout. What’s more, $1 of every meal served will directly benefit Pathlight HOME and IDignity, which are helping to combat homelessness in Central Florida. As a result, you can enjoy fantastic meals while supporting a fantastic cause with Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining.”
If you’ve ever wanted to dine in some high class, not always affordable to you places, this is the BEST time to do it. I can’t frequent Ruth’s Chris as much as I’d like, or Flemings. But I do love being able to spoil myself for a special occasion. In fact, every September, we go to Coopers Hawk for my bff Jess’ birthday. Because their Short Rib Risotto is INCREDIBLE! And all the portions are huge. Take a look at the restaurants participating this year, all around Central Florida, HERE.
