ORLANDO RESTAURANT REVIEW: Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurants
We hit the road again, looking for some great places to eat in the Orlando area. As usual we found a ton of opportunities and that almost always makes the choice more difficult. Our first thought was returning to Bella Italia for the thirsty Thursday specials, but we were on the other side of town and wanted to eat sooner than later. After a quick process to try to help narrow down the choices, we thought our must haves for this dining experience would include a sit-down full service menu, casual dress and great wine. Thankfully we found quite a few options that fit the description and we settled on Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant located at 8005 International Drive, Orlando Florida. They do have locations in 11 states and multiple locations inside of Florida.

One of the best parts about being in the Orlando area is the access to some of the best theme parks and experiences on the East Coast. As you might imagine, having so many great vacation options and things to do really drives the amount of tourism to the area. It does not matter if you are here with family, friends, solo or for work, there is a vacation destination for nearly everyone right here in Orlando. Because there is an abundance of travelers coming to experience Orlando, there are a lot of culinary options to choose from. We have all experienced that, what should we eat, conundrum at some point, and possibly are experiencing again right now.

LOCAL EATS: Crust Wood Fired Pizza in Charleston, SC
After a full day of activities, it is quite easy to work up an appetite. We recently made a trip out to John's Island, South Carolina as a day trip to escape downtown Charleston. One of our last activities of that day led us into the Charleston Distilling Company for a 5pm drink and recap of the day. We actually did have that drink or two, and in addition we added on their Distillery tour. Be sure to follow us on NewsBreak as the Charleston Distillery content will launch soon. The trip to the distillery was an outstanding end to a long day. The next thing we needed was something great to eat. The wonderful staff at the distillery overheard us talking about options and without hesitation, recommended Crust Wood Fired Pizza.

EAT & TELL: at Disney’s Diamond Horseshoe Restaurant in Magic Kingdom
Entrance to the Diamond Horseshoe in Magic KingdomCanva: Theresa Vitale. If you are currently on or planning to go on a Disney vacation, your plans probably include a visit to the Magic Kingdom. You may also want to plan out some dining options as well as the parks continue to get busier. It is well known that the Magic Kingdom theme park is one of the more popular parks at Walt Disney World, especially for visitors with kids. Disney is still operating with a theme park reservation system to help control capacity and guest experiences, we are told. This means to visit the Magic Kingdom and other Disney World parks, you will need a ticket to enter and a reservation for that same day. You may also find it necessary to reserve attractions with Disney’s Genie+ as well as sit down meals. Even with the park reservation system in place, it seems like the parks are as busy as they ever have been. This is no surprise as the decrease of Covid-19 restrictions may be fueling the desire to get out there and vacation again. Check out this view below of the Magic Kingdom as we made our way towards our dinner reservation, with the food review further below at The Diamond Horseshoe.
LOCAL EATS: Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar Review in Disney Springs
The only thing better than a bar with great bites and better drinks is one that is themed. At least, that is how they roll in Orlando. Some may call it kitschy, but you have to stand out in Orlando. The folks who are out on the town are looking for something a little different than they may have as a local place. When you decide to open up at Disney Springs, the stakes get a little bit higher. The landscape at Disney Springs is unique as it has shopping, restaurants and bars, some of which have celebrity backing other than Mickey Mouse.
LOCAL EATS: We tried Bella Italia, a family run Italian Restaurant
If there is one thing that is plentiful in the Orlando area, it has to be places to eat. When you look at Orlando in general, there is an abundance of things to do and to support that, there has to be a lot of places to eat. This can often make dining choices difficult to narrow down. When that happens people can get easily overwhemed by choices and wind up at a chain restaurant because it is familiar. That is not always a bad thing; when you find a well ran chain restaurant, it can be a great help for many different reasons.
LOCAL EATS: We tried Perrotti's NY Deli

If there is one thing Orlando has a good handle on, its a plethora of great places to eat, many of them are national or even regional chains that have gotten a bad rap simply for having more than a couple locations. To be fair, there is more than a few chains that deserve their reputation but that is news for another day.

A Robot Serves Me at Little Lamb Hot Pot @ Union City, CA
A quick video of me and Jason random food adventure to Little Lamb Hot Pot in Union City. I'm pretty sure this place used to be called Little Sheep Hot Pot and must have gone through a rebranding and renovation. It is a bit on the pricier side of hot pot places we've been to BUT THEY GOT A ROBOT, and little mouthwash cups. Hahha. Check it out, good deal for big groups, a lot of food for 2 people if you do the combo. Little Lamb Hot Pot: 34396 Alvarado-Niles Rd, Union City, CA 94587
