Date Night at Home 

In an effort to continue to serve Orlando families during these unprecedented times, Visit Orlando put together a list of restaurants on I-Drive that have been offering take out and delivery options. Over the last few weeks it has been heartwarming to see so many families supporting local businesses, and sharing with friends and family via social media.
The camaraderie in Orlando is real, and it’s one of the many reasons we love calling it home!

As part of a three weekend series, Visit Orlando has organized another way to have fun while supporting the Central Florida community during this challenging time, called #407Dates! If you haven’t already gotten in on the at home date night fun, don’t worry! This weekend is your chance.
Enjoy all the essentials for an unforgettable date night from good food, drinks, entertainment and something sweet to finish off the evening with, from the comfort of your own home!

First things first: The Food 

Any successful date night needs to include delicious food. Luckily, there are over 40 restaurants here on I-Drive that are open and ready to serve you via takeout or delivery!
From American favorites like BJ’s Brewhouse, Buffalo Wild Wings, YardHouse and Bonefish Grill, to restaurants offering flavors from across the globe, like; Oishi Japanese Restaurant, Vincenzo Cucina Italiana, Taverna Opa, Tapa Toro and Thai Thani Restaurant. And of course those family favorite restaurants like Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn SteakhouseDenny’s, Olive Garden and Carrabba's.  Whatever kind of food you’re feeling for your date night at home, we’re sure you can find it being offered up on International Drive.
But, let’s not forget that date night calls for a cocktail, glass of wine, or beer! Be sure you check out the drink menus at the restaurant you choose, as many spots on I-Drive are offering their bar to go! (Here are a few local spots serving up drinks to go.)
