Thanks to YosemiteSam and other posters for great recommendations. We went to Luma on Park, The Ravenous Pig and Cafe Tu Tu Tango during our Disney World trip last week.

I picked Luma for the food but also the atmosphere and decor. Naturally, my wife wanted to sit outside. At least I got to walk through to use the bathroom which was memorable for the sliding Star Trek-like door and inverted sink. The food was very good. Had an heirloom tomato salad and Duck Confit. Good-sized portions, crispy duck skin with interesting mix of greens and grains. My wife had a salad and her entree escapes me at the moment but it was tasty. We skipped dessert there as nothing appealed to us. We ended up at Gurtzberry a block or so away which has Pinkberry style frozen yogurt. Yum!

Ravenous Pig was nicer than I imagined based on comments here. Was glad I ignored comments about being able to wear shorts there. I could have gotten away with it but would have felt underdressed. I had the hunter salad with tasty sausage and melon while the wife had gatherer salad which was very good. She had the steak frites and I had the southern fried chicken both were very good. Chicken wasn't like my Virginia-born grandma's but was good. I had a nice dark beer the Cigar City Duro ale to wash it down. We skipped dessert again.

Cafe Tu Tu Tango ended up being a huge hit with the entire family which didn't attend the other dinners I mentioned. We ended up going twice. The empanadas and spare ribs were big winners even from folks who are not big meat eaters. The atmosphere is fantastic with artists working inside. We saw a tap dancer one night and a belly dancer another. It is a bit loud but that's part of the fun. We even bought a sketch from one of the artists.

Thanks to everyone for posting here.
