In addition to the “satellite” restaurants of high-profile chefs, Orlando has more than a few excellent home-grown restaurants. One of these is Luma on Park, the province of Chef Brandon McGlamery. The style is Modern American; simple foods made with fresh locally sourced ingredients and runs the gamut from oh-so-good pizza Margherita with heirloom tomatoes and grilled radicchio to seared local flounder with black lentils and ambrosia apple marmalade to a carbonara with house-made pappardelle pasta, organic eggs and 24-hour roast pork. The Modern-themed street-level space opens onto Winter Park’s fashionable Park Avenue. There are outdoor tables, a stylish bar with high tops and an intimate dining room that merges with the open kitchen, making it one of our picks for the best Orlando restaurant. It’s not uncommon to see McGlamery at the counter between the kitchen and dining room shucking artichokes or prepping vegetables.
