It features more than 250 restaurant listings with all the pertinent details, including a short review for each, plus lists of special features, such as where you can take your dog while you dine, which restaurants have great wine lists, where to find entertainment, or who offers a quiet, romantic dining experience.
In a way, it’s taken me 23 years to write this book. If you took all the reviews I wrote while at the Orlando Sentinel -- a couple of thousand, by my count -- and put them in book form, you’d have a tome several thousand pages long, even with tiny, tiny print. (Of course, if you left out the restaurants that are no longer open, you’d have a smaller book, but you get my point.) Those 23 years of analyzing, critiquing and observing the local scene have gone into compiling this guide.
I’ve not included every restaurant that I’ve ever reviewed, not even all those that are still open. Those I chose to include are mostly those I can recommend to you -- not all of them: there are some I’ve included that I feel necessary to steer readers away from, or at least offer a caveat; you’ll know them when you see them. The restaurants are those I can recommend to Orlando-area locals and visitors alike.
The book retails for $14.95, although if you hurry to the listing on Amazon.com, it's available for $10.76. Plus - or minus as the case may be - I'd like to offer 10 percent off the purchase to Theme Park Insiders. When you check out, type HLPDBNVA into the box that asks for a promotional code and Amazon will take 10 percent off the total.
Hope you enjoy the guide.
