Four Orlando, eleven Miami restaurants receive coveted Michelin stars

Four Orlando-area restaurants were honored this week with a Michelin star as the company expands its world famous ratings guide into the Sunshine State.

On Thursday, Michelin Guide officials announced that 15 restaurants in the state of Florida have been awarded a Michelin star, including 11 establishments based in Miami. Fourteen of the restaurants were awarded one star, while one restaurant in Miami was awarded two.

The four Orlando restaurants include two in south Orlando, one in Orlando’s Audubon Park District, and one in Winter Park.

Capa, which is located at the Four Seasons Resort at Walt Disney World, offers rooftop dining and serves Spanish-style tapas featuring seafood, cheeses, and prepared dishes, as well as a variety of steaks. That includes their signature, 32-ounce porterhouse steak.

Knife & Spoon, which is located at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, serves steak and seafood and is led by award-winning Chef John Tesar, who was a two-time contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef. The restaurant is open from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday.

Soseki, which is located at 955 W Fairbanks Avenue, and Kadence, which is located at 1809 Winter Park Road, both offer their takes on omakase, which is a Japanese-style of dining in which the chef prepares one dish at a time and engages with the diners throughout the meal.

The Michelin Guide rates tens of thousands of establishments in dozens of countries across multiple continents. The guides are sold worldwide and provide critique and insight into a variety of fields, including fine dining and hotel accommodations.
