I might have an opportunity on an upcoming business trip to get away for a real Chowhound-type meal in Greater Orlando: I'm looking for the kind of place that is generally known only to locals and has extraordinary food. Off the beaten track is fine: I'll have a car, and am willing to travel a good distance for something wonderful.
Any price point, any cuisine, but no chains. Without really knowing, I'm guessing I don't want to try anything on a Disney property: my memories of its restaurants from some years ago is that they are all sorta chain-like.
I'm hoping to find something like Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas, a place really amazing food that most visitors never even hear about, much less take the trouble to get away from the well-worn tourist paths to visit.
