It seems like there's a bloomin' new restaurant opening every week on I-Drive. The newest: Outback

Wow, there seems to be a new restaurant opening on I-Drive near the big wheel every week. A new Outback opens today. The new restaurant, located at 8351 International Drive at the Orlando Eye, is open for lunch daily, and is the first in the area to feature a new “Modern Australia” building design inside and out.

I checked it out over the weekend and really liked the new look. But don't worry, all the old favorites are still on the menu including the Bloomin' Onion.

Innovative new BBQ concept to debut this summer in Disney area

Gearing up toward its opening this summer, B Resort, located in the Walt Disney World® Resort, announces an innovative dining concept developed in partnership with restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow and China Grill Management. The renowned group, of famed China Grill and Asia de Cuba, will showcase its food and beverage expertise with the inaugural location of its newest concept, American Q, which promises to showcase a modern take on classic barbeque.

Located just off the lobby, the signature restaurant will feature an a la carte menu of barbeque specialties from more than a dozen regions throughout the United States and Latin America, as well as an “all-you-can-eat” parade of BBQ meats, seafood and poultry, continuously served tableside by American Q’s ”cowboy/cowgirl” carvers. Guests will enjoy an appetizer and salad buffet served from the bed of a ’50 cherry red Ford F1 pickup truck. Freshly made sides and cornbread skillets, all served family style, will be enjoyed as guests revel in the fun of spontaneous line dances, led by their friendly servers.

A full bar will serve creative cocktails, wines and a large selection of craft beers from regions throughout North America. American Q will offer a children’s menu aiming to win over the next generation of barbeque fans, completing the American Q dining experience.

“American Q will have a flavor and style unlike any restaurant we’ve seen,” says Jeffrey Chodorow, CEO and Founder of China Grill Management. “We are thrilled to be introducing the concept in Orlando and are confident that locals and visitors alike will appreciate its uniqueness.”

A distressed brick smokehouse, barn-inspired wood-clad bar and mason jar chandeliers add to the modern yet nostalgic “industrial farmhouse” charm of this American BBQ original, which will be open daily for breakfast and dinner.

For over two decades, Jeffrey Chodorow’s China Grill Management has created exciting culinary experiences, whether as a keystone attraction for hotel brands or as freestanding destinations. China Grill Management’s first-class restaurant and nightlife creations worldwide include, among others, the flagship China Grill in New York, Mexico City, and Miami (opening summer 2014); Asia de Cuba in London and New York (opening Spring 2014); Ed’s Chowder House and the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York; and Plunge at Hotel Gansevoort in the Meatpacking District in New York.

With nods to several regions of the Americas, Margaritaville Orlando offers up new burger selections to celebrate National Hamburger Month

One of the most celebrated holidays at Margaritaville, National Hamburger Month returns to honor a true American icon—the hamburger. Starting May 1 through May 31, Margaritaville Orlando, along with locations across the country from the Bayou to Baja, will celebrate with specialty burgers that pay homage to regions of the Americas. Margaritaville will also pay tribute to its signature burger “Cheeseburger in Paradise” that has been served with a side of fun for almost 30 years. 

To prepare for the month-long celebration, Margaritaville connected with thousands of fans spanning the country, encouraging them to share their version of the perfect hamburger. The burger components surveyed ranged from the preferred type of patty to toppings, condiments, buns and sides. Out of more than 17,000 respondents, almost 82 percent of those surveyed preferred beef to turkey or vegetarian patties. An astounding 93 percent voted cheese as the number one topping, with cheddar as the favorite. Lettuce, tomato, bacon and pickles also got top votes. Ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard were the most popular condiments with barbecue sauce and Heinz 57 coming in fourth and fifth place. Naturally, the favorite side item was French fried potatoes with 77 percent of the respondents opting for a big kosher pickle and 53 percent choosing a cold draft beer as their beverage of choice to enjoy with their burger.

Margaritaville will celebrate with the following specialty burgers created by Director of Culinary Bill Rohm; Baja Burger topped with carne asada, Oaxaca and Monterey jack cheese, avocado, pico de gallo, and key lime crema, the Bayou Burger seasoned with Cajun spices, caramelized onions and Andouille bacon topped with a Cajun remoulade and the Chimichurri Burger topped with all the trimmings and chimichurri, a green sauce that goes perfect with grilled meats. All burgers can be substituted with veggie or turkey patties and are available with gluten-free buns. Burgers are served with a choice of French fries, sweet potato fries or mixed green salad.

The Orlando restaurant is located in Universal Studios CityWalk at 6000 Universal Boulevard and is open Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information regarding the Orlando location, please visit www.margaritavilleorlando.com or call 407.224.2155.
