Orlando foodies and culture lovers have been eagerly looking forward to the days of June! What initially began as ‘Restaurant Week’ has grown to fill a full month and is now called Bite 30. From June 1-30th, restaurants all over town will offer a special prix fixe menu that allows diners to pay a lower price for a multiple course dining experience. Here’s the full lowdown on how you can participate in and enjoy one of Central Florida’s signature events, presented by the Core Group.

How Does Bite 30 Work?

Bite 30 helps locals and visitors find new spots to enjoy. To find out what restaurants are participating in Bite 30 and what they are offering, you can visit the official event website. Once you’ve chosen the restaurant you want to visit, you simply show up as usual and ask for the Bite 30 menu. To make the experience as easy and seamless as possible, diners do not need special coupons or offer codes. The participating restaurants are ready to serve and looking forward to seeing some new faces. Some of the more popular restaurants get full very quickly, so you may want to call and see if you can make a reservation before heading over.

Taking place during the last week of the month, Bite Nite is a fundraiser that benefits the Edible Education Experience, a charity that educates children on the importance of growing your own food and the process from seed to table. In addition to gourmet food, there are silent auctions, live auctions with celebrity chefs and live entertainment. Tickets to the event can be purchased online or at the door the night of the event, but they are likely to sell out.

Most Talked About Menus

Bite 30 is a great time to venture beyond your local neighborhood and favorite restaurants to expand your palette and your knowledge of the city. Many people find themselves exploring new areas of the city and local neighborhoods they never knew existed. As you travel to new areas, you may see the perfect location for your next home or the right neighborhood to purchase an investment property.
