Concierge.com's insider take:
At Luma on Park, floor-to-ceiling glass doors fold open to views of leafy Central Park, the leather banquette seating is accented with omnipresent candlelight, and diaphanous curtains catch the breeze. This is one of Orlando's most sophisticated dining experiences, and there's a focus on Florida-sourced vegetables, sustainable seafood and meats, and prowess for presentation that holds its own with any world-class establishment. The menu, which changes daily, might feature Key West wreckfish with walnut-braised scallions and apple chutney, housemade conchiglie with Florida spiny lobster and Zellwood corn, or for more daring foodies, pig head terrine with foie gras. Even the condiments are made in-house, combining interesting flavors into basil aïoli, vanilla salt, and lemon verbena butter. The building itself was once a bank—you'll find a nod to its financial past in the subterranean wine cellar, where LED-lit bottles glowing blue and green surround a private dining area in what was once the vault.—Terry Ward
