Put your meal on a pedestal 

Nobody has ever said there aren't enough unusual places to have dinner in Central Florida. Between the theaters and the rain forests and the '50s diners, sometimes one longs for a simple dinner at home. What about someone else's home? And what if that home is a museum?

Dinner at the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden (633 Osceola Ave., Winter Park) is a quiet little dining secret. The former home of the world-famous artist has been opening its doors to a select few since last February, and although the 24 seats at the next meal on Dec. 1 are probably already filled, now is a good time to book ahead for the April to-do.

Appetizers in the sculpture garden overlooking Lake Maitland and a Tuscan dinner to a string quartet in the Tapestry Room sounds a lot classier than a burger and Mouse ears. Cost is $75 per person. Contact Duggan Peak at 407-647-0283.
