Brooklyn chowhounder looking for help. My father and step-mother will be renting a house in Davenport early next year for a week. This is their yearly vacation to relax and play golf. I'd like to get them a gift certificate to a local area restaurant to use while they are there. It will be my step-mothers 60th birthday during the trip, so this is also doubles a celebratory meal
I'm looking for a local place (no chains please - that's where they eat at home), preferably american-ish or mexican. Bonus points for local / season menu. Since it is a birthday, it's fine for it to be a bit on the nicer side, but nothing where they'd need to be dressed up. keep in mind they are a bit meat & potato's type - but really do appreciate good food and good service. Total around $100 including tax and tip (but excluding drinks).
After my initial search I was almost 100% set to call the The Ravenous Pig. Seems exactly what i'm looking for, but i'm worried that Winter Park is too far from Davenport. or, is it not? (They will be driving around to play golf at different courses each day)
I've searched the boards in Davenport, Kissimee, etc. but many of the post are quite old or asking for kid friendly recs. I'm having a bit of a problem finding exactly what i'm looking for.
Thanks for your help
