The Kitchen

Encapsulating hip and groove, this casual all-day eatery with eclectic decor is the only place to rub elbows with rock legends as they cook up something good at the Chef’s Table. This one-of-a-kind full-service restaurant in Orlando features comfort food with a tinge of Southern twang. Lil’ rockers can chill in the Kids’ Crib on bean-bag chairs while catching some TV and enjoying a meal.

  • Character dining on Saturday nights from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm (always verify schedule with concierge)

Palm Restaurant

World-renowned for its prime cuts of meat and succulent Nova Scotia lobsters, along with classic American fare and Italian specialties, Palm Restaurant is the perfect place for a hearty meal in a classic New York-style atmosphere. The cartoon caricatures of celebrities drawn on the walls hearken back to the original Palm Restaurant’s roots in the newspaper district of Manhattan, where famous cartoonists would often exchange drawings for their meals.

  • Reservations are recommended. Call 407-503-7256 or book online
