Victoria & Albert's Restaurant Review: One of the most elegant dining experiences in Central Florida, Victoria & Albert's is tucked away on the second floor of the Grand Floridian. The formal dining room has just 20 tables, giving chef Scott Hunnel plenty of time to fuss over every entrée. He creates new menus every day, choosing what's freshest at the market. You might find poulet rouge with chanterelles, black trumpet mushrooms and truffle gnocchi; wild turbot with toasted capers and preserved lemon; and a Meyer lemon and blood orange purse with blackberry-violet sherbet. Hunnel is happy if you call ahead and request a favorite dish; he'll do his best to accommodate. Dinner is served in six small courses, including a cheese course with port; go with the well-chosen wine pairings if you just want to sit back and be pampered. If the dining room seems too pretentious, try to reserve the Chef's Table in the restaurant's small kitchen. The Queen Victoria Room, an intimate setting behind closed doors adjacent to the main dining room, has just four tables. The restaurant's wine list features more than 500 selections.
