September Means Magical Dining

Disclosure: I was part of a blogger preview dinner at Siro's via Visit Orlando. All thoughts, opinions and salivation are purely my own. One of my favorite things as a blogger has to be previews at restaurants. I'm a closet foodie and write vast amounts of beautifully written and appropriately photographed foods. Unfortunately, they are all written in my head so you will just have to make do with my Instagram, Pinterest and posts like this.

But, I digress. It. Is. Magical. Dining. Month! I am particularly excited because I just moved and the thought of not cooking a few meals this month and instead being treated to the surprised that I could find in over 75 restaurants around town sounds...dreamy.

I went to Siro Urban Italian Kitchen and dug the treats, the ambiance and the fact that I could totally book a magical night, have a couple of flights of wine and and then glide right on over to my hotel room. What did we do before Magical Nights, folks? This way you don't have to invite that one girlfriend that doesn't drink and gives you the side eye when you do. See, I'm looking out for you.

Here’s your Siro menu for Magical Dining month:

Choice of Appetizers MARINATED TOMATO SALAD Burrata, sea salt FRITTO MISTO Lemon-caper aioli GRILLED QUAIL Fennel sausage, pepperonata, Vidalia onion puree

Choice of Entrèes CHICKEN MILANESE Summer salad BUCATINI AI FRUTTI DI MARE Mussels, clams, shrimp, fennel sausage, tomato-saffron brodo GRILLED STRIP STEAK Ragout of summer squashes topped with crispy crumbs

Choice of Desserts ZEPPOLES CANNOLI TIRAMISU

In the mood for something else? Check out the list of restaurants and pick a favorite. But, I really recommend you pick something new. This gives you a way to try foods you might not try otherwise, at a great price!

It is Friday and there will be loads of date nights so, what are your tried and true restaurants on this list and what new foods are you going to be tasting soon?
