I will be in Orlando for a conference (limited time for meals) and in Vero Beach for fun (but just two days) from May 4-May 9. I will be solo, and will have a car. I like eating at places that will have food indigenous to area (conch, florida schrimp, avacado, etc.). I don't eat breakfast - prefer two meal on vacation - an early lunch and late dinner. If possible, I like to walk to dinner. I'm staying at JW Marriot in Orlando and Costa d'Este in Vero Beach. After reviewing your Board and a few other places, here is a draft of what I am considering. I could really use some help with Sunday! Check-out is at 11:00, I need to be at Orlando Airport by 4:00. Would prefer to spend as much of my time Sunday on/near the ocean as possible. Your thoughts, comments, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Tuesday evening: Norman's (I know, Primo is getting the rave's, but Normans' menu just looks more interesting to me)
Wednesday lunch: Ravenous Pig or Washington Shores Fish Market (was considering 4 Rivers Smokehouse, but just got back from Tennessee last month and am a bit BBQ'ed out).
Friday night: Oriente. Have seen mixed reviews, but by the time I get there I think I just want to crash on home base.
Saturday lunch: Squid Lips (will be in Sebastion for a pontoon ecology tour)
Saturday dinner: MT's Chophouse
Sunday lunch: HELP!!!
