Netflix show “Somebody Feed Phil” features several local Orlando restaurants

“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal’s Netflix series “Somebody Feed Phil” premieres today featuring several Orlando-area restaurants. The City Beautiful is one of 8 destinations (and one of only two U.S. locations) featured in season 7 of the unscripted culinary travel series.

The show filmed all over Orlando last year with the intention of highlighting the city’s “award-winning, diverse, and evolving dining scene. Over a dozen local businesses and personalities including Orlando’s Puerto Rican-inspired Crocante and Chef Yamuel Bigio as well as the Michelin-starred Capa and Chef Malyna Si.

“I’m here to maybe change your mind about Orlando itself,” Rosenthal says in the episode. “It’s a city created around entertainment, yes, but it has its own story beyond the theme parks.”
The local businesses visited by the “Somebody Feed Phil” crew vary from Michelin starred to multicultural to fusion options the locals love eating at. Here’s the full-list of restaurants included:
  • Black Bee Honey (student entrepreneurship program in downtown Orlando’s Parramore district)
  • Capa (the only Michelin starred Florida restaurant led by female chef of Asian descent located at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort)
  • Crocante (Puerto Rican cuisine in downtown Orlando)
  • East End Market (community food hall and hub for local vendors in the Audubon Park neighborhood):          

                    DOMU (Michelin Bib Gourmand ramen bar)

                    Gideon’s Bakehouse (bakery known for their oversized half-pound cookies)

                    Hinckley’s Fancy Meats (counter deli offering gourmet sandwiches)

                    La Femme du Fromage (artisan cheese shop led by a female cheese monger)

  • Kook’n with Kim (soul food kitchen based in Eatonville, the nation’s oldest African American municipality)
  • Se7en Bites (LGBTQ+ owned Southern-inspired bakery and restaurant in downtown Orlando)
  • Sampaguita (Filipino-inspired ice cream shop offering unique flavors as well as dairy-free options in downtown Orlando’s Mills 50 district)
