When a restaurant is owned by a company whose vision and mandate does not address food -- but rather sports and entertainment -- it gives me cause for concern. MLSE: Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, is an archetype of this business model. But of course, a company such as this would (inevitably) expand into food-focused outlets, regardless.

Yes, there's still a litany of chain restaurants that reside in the endless string of plazas and strip-malls one sees on International drive. But, as far as the perception goes that it represents Orlando's dining scene -- is an outdated notion -- a relic of the past.

I should have known better. Generally, you need to offer some leeway for new kids on the block -- at least three months to work out kinks. But I didn't. Because at the time, I thought -- "Bumpy ride, be damned! Imma get me some Hotline Bling." Oh, how naively hopeful I was.

Luckily, brunch is my favourite meal, as it allows plenty of time to exercise up an appetite and it isn't too late in the day for digestion before bed.
