Voted Best Meal of the Trip!
If you're planning a trip to Orlando, I HIGHLY recommend dining at Kouzzina by Cat Cora. You foodies out there will recognize her as the only female iron chef. She's proved her status as far as I'm concerned.
What's funny is that we ended up dining at Kouzzina out of frustration at the ESPN club on Disney's Boardwalk. Kouzzina was the only restaurant there that didn't have a ridiculously long wait. Our impatience paid off (I guess that does happen every once and a while)!
Here's a link to the menu. I admit, we took one look (after we'd already been seated and ordered drinks so there was no turning back) and were overwhelmed. Don't be intimidated though. There are plenty of delicious dishes to try, even if you're not used to Greek food.
Naturally, booze was high on my list so, given the classy atmosphere, mom and I ordered the Sparkling Poinsettia - Domaine Spiropoulos Greek Sparkling Wine with a splash of PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur.
It was fabulous.
As was the Kouzzina Trio - Tasting size portions of Greek-style Lasagna, Char-grilled Lamb Burger (below), and Cinnamon-stewed Chicken with Orzo.
The portions were a perfect amount of food.
The setting isn't anything special, but it's open and clean and the service was very good. There's always a slight mark up for a Disney World location, but the food at Kouzzina made this place was surly worth it.
