Capa Steakhouse & Bar — Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort

MICHELIN Inspector Notes: “At the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World; this steakhouse also flaunts a decidedly Spanish accent. Kick things off with ace tapas before indulging in a main dish, like flame-kissed ribeye with tamarind-ancho sauce.”

“I’m so glad Florida's top restaurants and talented chefs are finally receiving their due recognition by MICHELIN Guide,” said Dana Berry, PR Director for Four Seasons Resort Orlando. “Orlando has so many amazingly talented chefs and incredible dining options, it’s great that the book is raising the level of awareness of Orlando as a culinary hot spot. Our chefs at Four Seasons Orlando are thrilled to receive a MICHELIN Star rating for Capa.”

Kadence — Audubon Park Garden District

MICHELIN Inspector Notes: “The omakase opens with hot dishes and cool sashimi. This is food that’s free-spirited, yet manages to honor the classic methods. Pacing is on point in sashimi like hamachi and hirame. Nigiri, like snapper with lemon and sea salt, will have you yearning for more.”
