Magical Dining Month starts tomorrow


Food lovers can experience deals at 90 of the most popular restaurants in Central Florida during Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month.

From August 29th through October 2nd, guests can enjoy three-course dinners for only $33 per person. The program includes some of the hottest new arrivals to Orlando's culinary scene as well as local favorites across town.

One dollar from each meal will also be donated to a local charity, with last year's program contributing more than $160,000.

A full list of all participating restaurants and menus are available at OrlandoMagicalDining.com.

New restaurants to the program include:

  • STK, a brand new upscale steakhouse with a high-energy atmosphere at Disney Springs.
  • Morimoto Asia, by Chef Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef America fame, offering pan-Asian flavors from across the continent.
  • Urbain 40, glinting with 1940's glamour and a continental menu crafted from largely local, seasonal ingredients.
  • Cask & Larder, a local favorite featuring brewed-onsite beer, home-cured meats and pickled vegetables. Cask & Larder is the second restaurant created by five-time James Beard-nominated chefs James Petrakis and Julie Petrakis.

Each year Magical Dining Month benefits a local cause chosen the year prior. This year, The Russell Home for Atypical Children is the recipient, and will be given $1 from every Magical Dining meal. The Russell Home is the first non-profit institution in the country to provide a home atmosphere with a family structure for special needs children and 'child-like' adults. In continuous operation for over 60 years without any government support, the home also provides 24 hours of free respite care and free day care for the local families with special needs dependents.

Last year, Magical Dining Month raised a record $160,735 for ELEVATE Orlando. The funds raised by Magical Dining enabled ELEVATE to expand its mentorship programs into Jones High School, equipping thousands of urban youth in Central Florida to graduate with a plan for their future.

Whether you arrive at the restaurant as a walk-in guest or with advance reservations, simply ask your server for the Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month menu. No vouchers, coupons or flyers are needed.
