Restaurant review: Chuy’s Tex-Mex

Fun Tex-Mex, great price

Chuy’s is all that it’s supposed to be. When the food is good (and fresh) why not let it be fun too.

Restaurant review: BRAVO! Cucina Italiana

A round of applause for an Italian restaurant with a delicious flair.

Needless to say, BRAVO! gets six thumbs up (there were three of us). Here was a restaurant that I had never tried and we loved the ambiance, the décor, the service and the food.

Restaurant review: Pepe’s Cantina

We had a wonderful time at Pepe’s Cantina and I happily recommend it highly.

When it comes to Mexican restaurants, in addition to wonderful food presented well, I want the meal to have an added level of fun.

Restaurant review: Sprinkles

And he said, “Let it be known,” Sprinkles, the cupcakery is open.

The much-anticipated opening of the Disney Springs Town Center on May 15 was so much sweeter for this foodie, because I was invited to stop in and have a personal taste at the brand-new Sprinkles.

Take your tastebuds to Brazil

Step into BoiBrazil, a new concept restaurant on Lyman Avenue (just off Park Avenue) in Winter Park, and you step into a total Brazilian meat-lover’s experience.

Restaurant Review: Mikado

All you can eat sushi!

It’s the beautiful range of choices on the sushi buffet that calls up words like quality, excellence, and originality.

Restaurant Review: TR Fire Grill

New restaurant sets tastebuds ablaze

Those stacks were little altars to the worship of Ahi tuna, and I worshipped with every glorious bite.

Restaurant Review: Zona Fresca

I expected the food to taste good, but I sincerely enjoyed everything I tasted.

The new eatery includes an 800-square-foot patio and serves Mexican-inspired dishes like chicken burritos, fish tacos and pork tacos created with fresh, all-natural ingredients and no preservatives.

Restaurant Review: Provisions & Buzz Co.

Jack's Steakhouse rebrands

Jack’s Steakhouse is now Provisions & Buzz Co., and that “new” restaurant is benefitting from Chef Josh Spisak’s inherent love of food.

Restaurant Review: The Strand

Artfully stubtle

The Strand does do lunch, but in the evening, it becomes a place where magic happens thanks to the subtle artistry of this very-married chef duo.

Restaurant Review: Al Bacio

A European taste

Al Bacio is a wonderful find – a welcoming Italian family cafe, located on the quiet end of Park Avenue.

Sushi Pop gets big reopening — bar included

Sake, anyone?

What does chef/owner Chau Trinh have in store for lovers of interesting Japanese food with an artistic twist? A lot more whiskey than before — rising sun style.

Restaurant review: RA Sushi

RA Sushi does it all right – décor, food, service and welcoming atmosphere.

Most important is the taste, quality and originality of everything from signature bar drinks to appetizers that had me doing my “happy food dance,” to generous-portion sushi rolls that bring the idea of fusion to a whole new level.

Restaurant review: Café 906

Formerly in Winter Park, locally owned cafe reopens in Baldwin Park.

Step into Café 906 in its new home, comfortably situated among the other restaurants in Baldwin Park’s “restaurant row,” and you step into France.
