The Peabody has long been one of Orlando's finest luxury hotels, and dining here is enough of a treat to make even the most hardened locals fight the International Drive traffic. This month, the hotel continues their "3. 3. 30." deal with a fantastic prix fixe menu at The Capriccio Grill Italian Steakhouse. Look at the choices:
First course: Lobster Shrimp Bisque with shrimp rice cracker and chervil OR The Wedge Salad with applewood-smoked bacon, Russian dressing, and pickled tomato
Second Course: Squid Ink Fettuccini with spicy prawn, smoked tomatoes, piquillo
peppers, porchetta, and boursin hollandaise OR Creekstone Farms Beef Tenderloin with roasted diver scallop, truffle fries, and black garlic & chive aioli
Third Course: Mixed Berries Compote with Grand Marnier zabaglione, and citrus tuille OR
Vanilla Bean Gelato with seasonal berries and lychee caramel
Considering that a regularly priced dinner at Capriccio easily runs $50+ per person, this is a terrific deal. Make reservations as soon as you can -- you've got until the end of March to enjoy it.
