Working with Chris Windus and his team for the past week was an absolute blast…. Chris Windus was graceful to allow me and a friend to stage and help with the preparations of their Annual EPCOT Food & Wine dinner at the Todds English Bluezoo restaurant in Orlando Florida …
For those that are not familiar , Bluezoo is a 4 diamond AAA restaurant inside the Swan and Dolphin Property, in World Disney … Bluezoo and the chef team of the hotel are known for pushing the boundaries in central Florida for quite some time now and display some very very refined food …Most Recently Bluezoo was named Best seafood restaurant in Orlando ….
Bluezoo is a Todd English restaurant and a very fine one… So if you are ever in Orlando please do not miss the opportunity of having dinner at the Bluezoo …
