Orlando's Restaurant

The first visit to any restaurant is a gamble, but between the attentive but unobtrusive service, the white-tablecloth décor and incredible price point — a mere $7.50 for my selection from the week's "Southern Hospitality" menu — it turns out Orlando's is a fairly safe bet. One week at Orlando's might feature Asian cuisine; the next is French, or Mediterranean. The techniques the students learn in the classroom all apply to different stations in the kitchen, and they come into play no matter the style of cuisine. (July 2016)
