My husband and I are coming down to Orlando for a week's vacation. Lots planned -- Epcot, the Mets, the Yankees, Kennedy Space Center, golf and on and on. We're psyched. We've rented a condo in Kissimmee and we will have a rental car. We're not at all adverse to driving around. It's interesting...unless the traffic is terrible.
I've done a lot of searching on the board...thanks to all those who post! Le Coq Au Vin for French or may be La Crepe; lots of great choices for BBQ, and the Vietnamese choices look great too. I still haven't settled on any place for Italian tho Enzo's on the Lake has some interest. And sushi at the Hyatt. Still looking for a zing-y fried chicken place.
In general we like local-type places and not chains. I had pretty well set my mind to go to Maison et Jardin for my b'day in the middle of the week but I just read that it's closed now except for special functions. I don't want an extravaganza like V&A or Emerils. There's lots of that here in NYC. I just want a romantic, quiet restaurant with good food where I can have a feel good birthday celebration. Driving is fine. Close by is fine. All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
