With an international fusion of Latin, Caribbean, and Asian tastes prepared European style, Chef Norman Van Aken’s namesake Norman’s is a real palate pleaser. This AAA Four-Diamond restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, features a fantastic tasting menu covering all its worldly bases. For starters, try the Brazilian Styled Creamy Cracked Conch Chowder. And how drool-worthy does organic chicken with sweet plantain stuffing, black beans and pineapple/papaya chutney sound?
