Orlando serves up a restaurant month

Add Orlando to the list of cities that will host a restaurant month this year. September is Magical Dining Month, during which diners can find three-course prix fixe lunches for $17 or dinners for $29. The 24 participating restaurants include Emeril’s Orlando at Universal CityWalk, Fulton’s Crab House onboard a riverboat docked at Downtown Disney, and other restaurants at the theme parks and in and around Orlando.

I think it’s a smart move to include restaurants at Disney and Universal, since it’s no secret that theme parks are the primary reason many people visit Orlando. And it actually does seem like a way to save; for instance, the estimated cost of an a-la-carte dinner at Fulton’s Crab House is $30 to $50, so to get three courses for under $30 is a pretty good deal.
