Fine Dining, Outdoor Dining: Norman Van Aken is a culinary legend – and a proud adopted Floridian, which plays nicely into delicious and often Latin-, Caribbean- and even Key West-infused fare. Sit outside and enjoy spectacular views of lakes, gardens and the Ritz-Carlton's expansive, green golf course or dine in climate-controlled majesty – vaulted ceilings and Italianate windows help bring that outside essence in. Tapas like Key West shrimp ceviche or delicate caviar may prime your palate for creamy cracked conch chowder or rhum and pepper painted Florida black grouper. Norman's is, of course, not a one-dollar-sign venue, but for vacationers and those looking for a sumptuous meal out, few venues are as resplendent as the Ritz-Carlton, and few restaurants could match it as well as Norman's.

Fine Dining, Best Restaurants: "When in Rome.... Norman's embraces the Floribbean vibe, so I say embrace the region. If they're offering something key lime come dessert, grab it."

Outdoor Dining: "Norman's patio views are resplendent. Pace yourself at dinner that you might linger over coffee, dessert or a post-meal cocktail al fresco."
