SLATE Orlando Restaurant Review | The Chef Next Door
Just two short weeks ago I landed in sunny Orlando, Florida for the Food Wine Conference. Arriving a day ahead of the event, I was excited to spend time with some of my blogger friends. Face to face time, rather than screen time, which was simply amazing. You see, in the blogging world I have a lot of friends that I've grown quite close to but never had the opportunity to meet in person. We are like penpals in a way. So when I had the opportunity to meet up with some of them pre-conference for dinner, I jumped at the chance.

Shelby from Grumpy’s Honeybunch, Renee from Renee’s Kitchen Adventures, and Michele from Flavor Mosaic and I all headed to SLATE Orlando on Thursday for dinner. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. From the beautiful entrance to the restaurant to the open kitchen and stunning bar, it had such a warm and comforting feel to it.

One of my favorite features of the restaurant was the gorgeous copper wood fired oven. What I wouldn't give to have one of those in my backyard!

The booths were comfy and cozy, and perfect for quiet conversation. Whether dining alone or meeting friends for dinner, this is a perfect restaurant for everyone.

I also loved the gorgeous fireplace and sitting area, although it was so warm that night I didn't get a chance to sit by it.

Of course we can't not talk about the food, can we? The food. Oh my the food! It was glorious. And I really mean that. Every single thing I tried was absolutely delicious. Luckily there were nine of us, so we ordered several appetizers to share. Boy was that a good idea!

Being the cheese lover that I am, I couldn't wait to dig into the BURRATA with waterkist farms tomatoes, cucumber, olive oil croutons, and greek oregano. So creamy and delicious!

And then there was the SWEET & SOUR CALAMARI with calabrian chili sauce. Did I ever tell you I hadn't ever tried calamari until like 2 years ago? Silly, silly me! Boy was I missing out. Calamari is good, but this calamari from SLATE is to die for!

Then we've got these fun little PIMENTO CHEESE HUSH PUPPIES with jalapeno jelly. Adorable AND delicious!

For the main course I chose the DIVER SCALLOPS with farro, zellwood corn, basil, cucumber, pickled peppers and Thai corn vinaigrette. One of the best dishes I've ever eaten in my life. And I totally mean it. The scallops were tender and flavorful, the sauce was light and spicy, the basil and cucumber so fresh. Just an amazing combination.

Being the chocolate lover that I am, I just had to get the POT DE CREME with salted caramel and chocolate custard, creme fraiche chantilly, and crumbled chocolate biscotti. It. Was. Amazing. I was so full, but there was no way I could waste a drop of this! I ate the whole dish.

  4. Without advertising, chances are your restaurant won't survive. Smart advertising helps develop your good reputation and reach consumers who otherwise might never hear of you. It also helps with restaurant promotions, such as the announcement of new menu items, discounts and special events. https://sidedishmedia.co.uk

Upselling means convincing customers to upgrade their current purchase or buy more items.

  13. It is essential to choose the right menu. People often make the mistake of thinking that food makes a restaurant successful. This is not true. The best restaurants offer exceptional service and a great menu. People don't come to eat in a restaurant because they like to eat.

  27. You can utilize a wide range of drill machines to penetrate glass bottles. Be that as it may, the main thing is to pick the right boring tool. Generally, the glass bottle is exceptionally dainty so it breaks when light power is applied.
