Chefs at The Bistro on Park Avenue concoct a menu of New Orleans–style specialties and gourmet bistro fare, earning the eatery nods for Best Burger, Best Brunch, and Best American Food in Citysearch’s 2010 Best of Orlando awards. To kick off meals, taste buds can swim warm-up laps in a bowl of made-to-order oyster stew ($10) or practice juggling pan-fried crab cakes dished with a sweet Asian sauce ($15). New Orleans–inspired entrees such as smoked andouille sausage with red beans and rice ($15) or the chef’s specialty shrimp or crawfish étouffée ($25) saturate senses in Cajun spices and child memories of trike joyrides through the French Quarter. Guests can also tuck into bistro fare such as the open-faced burger ($10) while three styles of po boys ($13–$15) wrap tongues in hoagie-rolled Southern comfort.
Patrons can dine alfresco in The Bistro on Park Avenue’s open courtyard, or take a seat at tables in the dining room, where light from exposed-brick archways gently warms the clay-tiled floors. The Bistro on Park Avenue also serves Sunday brunch until midafternoon, along with $5 martinis every day of the week.
