BoVine is just the sort of restaurant I look for when Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining comes around. It’s an upscale, fine dining restaurant where many of the a la carte menu items are already in the $40 range, so you know you’re going to get a terrific deal with three courses for that price. For many people, this is a great opportunity to try a really good restaurant.
In my original review of BoVine, I mentioned how much I liked the Applewood Smoked Bacon Slab, similar to a popular appetizer at famed Peter Luger Steak House in Brooklyn. It’s one of the starter choices on the Park Avenue restaurant’s Magical Dining menu and I recommend it heartily. Bovine’s Caesar Salad is another good choice.
Your main course options are Petite Filet Mignon, Scottish Salmon (you can tell by its brogue) or Airline Chicken. I’d go with the steak simply because I think of BoVine primarily as a steakhouse, for some odd reason.
But consider this: BoVine is offering upgrades on its MagDin menu and you can switch that little filet to a Bone-in Ribeye for an extra $28. It’s the same 22-ounce cut that’s on the regular menu, which, by the way, goes for $65 all by itself. So for $68 you can get the ribeye plus two other courses.
For dessert, the Ricotta Cheesecake with a Prosecco mango sauce would be my choice but the the Chocolate Bread Pudding sounds yummy, too.
BoVine is at 319 S. Park Ave., Winter Park. It is open for dinner daily. The phone number is 407-730-6249.
