With Magical Dining Month just around the corner in Orlando, I had the chance to preview the offerings at Ruth's Chris on Restaurant Row. There are some great restaurants on Sand Lake Road, and I'd been meaning to try Ruth's Chris but hadn't gotten around to it. I'm very fussy about steak and had been disappointed at another big-name steak house, so I was concerned that it wouldn't live up to my expectations. Fortunately, as you'll read in the list of photos accompanying this article, it was a top-notch meal.
If you'd like to see all the participating restaurants for Magical Dining Month, which runs through the whole month of September, jump to this article. They're all around the Orlando area, including downtown and near the attractions. They represent a wide variety of cuisines, so you're sure to find something that appeals to you, from hearty steaks to ethnic dishes to fusion cooking to fondue.
Ruth's Chris has several participating locations, all of which offer the same menu options. The meals there, and at all of the restaurants, are a set fee of $33 for an appetizer, main meal, and dessert. The event benefits Ronald McDonald House, so you can go out for a night on the town and feel good about helping charity.
