AOL Travel Editor’s Review

One of the “satellite” restaurants that’s taken its own tack, Primo is owned and operated by Chef Melissa Kelly and Price Kushner, who also own and operate the original Primo in Rockland, ME. The food has a Mediterranean slant with an emphasis on the freshest seasonal ingredients—some of them grown on premises in Primo’s own organic gardens. A typical dinner might include warm goat cheese flan with wood- and herb-roasted tomatoes, braised Guinea hen and squash ravioli with Hen of the Woods mushrooms and cippolini onions, and wood-grilled New York Strip Steak with horseradish potato cake and a salad of spicy cress and roast beets. There’s also an outstanding wine list. Primo is one of the best places to eat in Orlando, located in a modern but classic space inside the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes hotel about 15 minutes from the theme parks. Kelly, a James Beard Foundation winner, cooked with the legendary Alice Waters at Chez Panisse and the influences are obvious. Primo is decidedly more casual than Victoria & Albert’s but don't show up in jeans
