It’s rare these days to experience something that truly fills you with wonder and awe, but magician Kostya Kimlat’s entertaining magic act at Christner’s does just that.
Once a month on Saturday evenings at the legendary Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster (formerly Del Frisco’s), Mr. Kostya Kimlat and his friends perform during a four-course dinner magic show in a private parlor environment.
The Ukraine-born magician, based in Orlando, performs and teaches magic around the world and has been named the Orlando Magic’s “Official Magician.”
Christner’s is, of course, one of Orlando’s oldest and most esteemed steakhouses, built over the years with a dedication to fine dining and great service by the Christner family. Steaks here are prime-aged, corn-fed and are cut fresh to order.
Kostya Kimlat and his team of magicians blew me away by their artistry and skill during a recent 90-minute magic show presented between dinner courses. The final act, literally a spine tingling experience, left me speechless … you just have to see it to understand what I mean.
The event takes place in a private parlor room towards the back of the restaurant, beginning with a plate of bread, house salad, and jumbo shrimp appetizer. Dinner entrees include a choice of 6oz Filet, 12oz Strip or 12oz Salmon with fresh grilled asparagus & chateau potatoes – some of the creamy, buttery, mashed potatoes in Orlando – followed by dessert and coffee or tea, with entertaining, and awe-inspiring magic performances between each course.
The dinner shows at Christner’s are usually once a month, the last Saturday of the month, $118.00 (Tax and tip included) per person, starting promptly at 7:00pm and lasting till about 9:30pm. For schedule and tickets, please visit MagicShowOrlando.com
