Due to the disruption from the Hurricane, Visit Orlando has extended it's month long food celebration an extra week to October 7th, so now we have more time to hit up some  great spots to eat at great prices.

One such spot is Reunion Resort. Both restaurants on the property, Eleven and Forte are participating in Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month that started August 23rd and is now going on through October 7th with Prix fixe menus available in both for $35.

They have put together a spectacular selection of food with full size portions and amazing flavor, and for $20.00 extra, Forte and Eleven are offering a wine pairing for each course. The selections are sophisticated, and may surprise wine enthusiasts with wines from different regions and grapes.

Reunion Resort is also a recent winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The AAA Four Diamond-rated resort has earned this prestigious award for the Master Wine List, which contains 94 wines, at its signature restaurant Eleven. The award is given to those restaurants whose wine lists excel in offering interesting selections that complement their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine enthusiasts.

The offerings at Eleven are a Filet Mignon Egg Roll, Iceberg Wedge Salad or an incredible Lobster Bisque for appetizer. Entree selections include NY Strip with mashed potatoes, Airline Chicken and Pan Seared Grouper. Dessert is your choice of Vanilla Flan, or Chocolate Cake.

At Forte, the appetizers start with Crispy Calamari, Roasted Italian Sausage or Endive Salad. Entree Choices consist of a Delmonico Cast Iron with gnocchi bolognese, Red Snapper Pappardelle and Shrimp Scampi, or Airline Chicken Saltimbocca. For dessert you have a choice of Tiramisu or a Trio of Miniature Gelato Cones.

I recently had the opportunity to sample a few dishes from both restaurants at the resort, along with the wine pairing. Not only was it delicious and well prepared, but when you think of the food you are going to get here for $35.00, it’s kind of a steal, especially at such a nice resort as Reunion Resort is.

Endive Salad is at Forte with blue cheese, candied walnuts, and mustard dressing, you can pair this with Una, Gruner Veltliner, 2017 from Austria.

The Lobster Bisque was amazing with butter poached lobster, green onion crème fraîche, and you can enjoy this even more with O:TU Merlot Rosé, Awatere Valley, New Zealand served at Eleven for an appetizer.

Airline Chicken Saltimbocca will be a main course option at Forte with a Marsala Sauce and you can pair this with Ceres Composition, Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand.

Prime NY Strip with mashed potatoes, asparagus and peppercorn sauce is available at Eleven with a wonderful peppercorn cream sauce, pair this with a Katherine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, California 2016.

Pan Seared Grouper is also available at Eleven with roasted tomato grits, broccoli slaw, and a citrus cream sauce. This pairs perfectly with Groth, Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley.

Red Snapper Pappardelle and Shrimp Scampi will be offered at Forte with pappardelle pasta in a white wine butter sauce, and is excellently paired with Pazo de Senorans, Alberino, Spain 2016.

Tiramisu is available at Forte, and Vanilla Flan pictured on the right is available as a desseert option at Eleven for Magical Dining Month.

You will not be dissapointed at Reunion Resort with these excellent options for Magical Dining Month, and trust me, the $20.00 extra for the wine pairing is money well spent, with such extensive and amazing wines.
