Celebrate Orlando’s culinary scene with Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining®, now in its 14th year.  Running from Aug. 23 through Sept. 30, 2019, it’s your chance to enjoy three-course, prix-fixe dinners at more than 120 of Orlando’s best restaurants for just $35 per person.  Additionally, through Visit Orlando, $1 from each meal will benefit two local charities: the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Orlando and Lighthouse Central Florida.

We were invited to Reyes Mezcaleria for a sneak peek and taste of their Magical Dining menu this year prepared by Executive Chef Wendy Lopez & Pastry Chef Denise Newberry.  

Reyes Mezcaleria specializes in agave spirits with a large emphasis on mezcal, the celebrated spirit of Oaxaca.  Regionally inspired Mexican dishes are served up in style at this conveniently located North Quarter, Downtown eatery.

This third unique concept by local restaurateurs Jason and Sue Chin is a continuation of their commitment to thoughtful design and uncompromising quality of ingredients.

Reyes Mezcaleria is a perfect place to enjoy unique, high quality Mexican cuisine and spirits in an upscale setting while exploring Downtown Orlando.
