If you’re a fan of excellent, local cuisine, and you’d like to partake in the best Orlando offers – but you don’t want to stretch the budget too far – your best bet is to stop by in September. Why? Because, as Megan Ribbens from the Orlando Business Journal reports, that’s when Orlando’s Magical Dining Month takes place.

What It’s All About

This will be the 9th annual Magical Dining Month, and it will have more restaurants participating than ever before: more than 75! This month-long festival offers special 3-course menus at a variety of local restaurants, all priced much lower than normal. The purpose of the festival is to get guests to try these local hot spots during the traditionally slow month of September.

Participating Restaurants

Old favorites are back, like Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Luma Park, and Capital Grille, plus many new options like:

  • Eddie V’s

  • Yuki Hana Japanese Fusion
  • Bistro CloClo

How it Works

The month-long foodie fest is actually a little longer this year. A preview week begins August 25th and the regular festival runs through the end of September. Reservations are absolutely recommend! Remember that even though it may not be the busiest tourist time of the year, there are plenty of local visitors who will take full advantage of the promotion.
