Orlando’s dining scene earns top culinary honors
In June, the inaugural edition of MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa was revealed, with inspectors identifying four MICHELIN-starred restaurants in Orlando, along with other notable mentions. According to Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides, inspectors found that Orlando had much to offer food and wine enthusiasts, with talented chefs and their committed teams creating culinary experiences matched only by the destination’s amazing attractions.
“MICHELIN’s recognition of 34 Orlando restaurants, including four starred venues, seven Bib Gourmands and 23 Recommended, confirms what we in the destination have known all along - that Orlando has an exceptional culinary community,” said Casandra Matej, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “Like so many industries in Orlando, our dining scene is fueled by creativity and ingenuity. This incredible news elevates Orlando’s entire culinary scene, and we congratulate the many Orlando restaurants recognized in this inaugural Florida selection by the MICHELIN Guide."
Visit Orlando has created an interactive map of MICHELIN Guide restaurants to easily find them throughout the destination. The four restaurants that received a one-star award include: Capa, a rooftop steakhouse and bar at the Four Seasons Orlando Resort; Kadence, a Japanese/sushi restaurant in the Audubon Park Garden District; Knife & Spoon, a steakhouse at the Grande Lakes Orlando; and Soseki, which features sushi/fusion in Winter Park.
