Lunch, Best Restaurants: Oh, K...when will the love affair end? Please say never. This College Park restaurant is an across-the-board favorite for down-home burger lovers and duck confit aficionados and everyone in between. Its menu is like Forrest Gump's proverbial box of chocolates; local sourcing makes it slightly more unpredictable (in a good way). K's atmosphere is whatever you need it to be � relaxing or romantic, but maintains a comfortable, casual elegance. If you like your food with a bit of feel-good community happy, K's chef/owner, Kevin Fonzo gives back to Orlando in spades � school lunch programs, school gardening programs, even culinary instruction for youngsters, all of which has been recognized with awards that made a big enough noise here at home in Florida to be heard at the White House, where he was invited for his achievements. And if all that doesn't impress you, just try his mac and cheese.
Romantic Dining: One of the nice things about restaurants that source locally is that save a few likely staples, you're never quite sure what they'll have when you show up. So it goes at K Restaurant, a College Park favorite that manages to check the "relaxed" and "friendly" boxes while holding up its "romantic" end of the bargain, as well. This makes it as nice a place to bring your significant other on an anniversary as it is for a food-focused girls' night out. K will unwind you with its atmosphere, whether you dine indoors or al fresco, along with its wine list, then knock your palate out. Entrees here might include a luscious filet mignon on potato gratin, tender duck breast with fried Brussels sprouts or a rich, sausage-infused mac-and-cheese.
