It seems like yesterday — OK, six days ago — that we wrapped up the Orlando Weekly restaurant weeks known as Bite30. What's next? More restaurant weeks!

Visit Orlando's five-week promotion features 100 restaurants around the city and $35 prix fixe dinner menus.

Search participating restaurants by cuisine if you're craving certain flavors, or if you're in a new neighborhood and want to try out a new spot, search by area, or "districts" as Visit Orlando calls them.

Some of our favorite restos are listed, and Magical Dining, like Bite30, is prime time to try a restaurant that's usually out of your budget for a casual weeknight dine.

Magical Dining Month's catalog of culinarians also allows you to make a reservation at most participating restaurants right from the website through OpenTable, which makes planning ahead a heck of a lot easier.

Here are some highlights from the list:
Ravello at the Four Seasons Orlando
We're not going to miss the bucatini alla Amtriciana entree and gelato di parmigiano to start.

Le Coq au Vin
Go full-on classic French with onion soup, boeuf bourguignon and crepes Suzette for dessert.

Urbain 40
We're heading straight for that braised pork shank entree with thyme-honey reduction.

Magical Dining Month ain't just for Orlando — Sanford's getting in on the action too. The pickled low-country shrimp app has our name on it.

Get more info on Magical Dining Month here and start making those reservations ASAP. You've got a lot of eating to do.
