About the restaurant
Lamp & Shade Craft Kitchen and Cocktails is Mills area’s newest dining and nightlife concept. Playfully yet eloquently named, Lamp & Shade Craft Kitchen and Cocktails got its inspiration from the idea to ‘hangout and throw some shade in conversation’ while paying homage to the history of its building, previously The Lamp Shade Fair, well-known by locals for over 50 years.

The Asian-influenced tapas style menu showcases seasonal and local provisions of the Orlando community in innovative dishes that Executive Chef for Thriving Hospitality, Ryan Stewart, has meticulously developed.

Lamp & Shade's comprehensive beverage program features riffs on tiki classics tying back to the influential Asian roots of cocktails, pairing nicely with Chef’s selection of Asian inspired faire.

Some of the best Mexican food I’ve had in Orlando. Our server, Eva was friendly and very helpful navigating us through the food and drink menus as this was our first time there. We both had the F & D Ultimate margaritas which were great. My wife’s chicken quesadilla and my enchiladas were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.

About the restaurant
Camelo Pizzaria is a family-owned business headquartered in São Paulo, Brazil, since 1957. With eight units in the biggest city of Latin America and one in Rio de Janeiro, Camelo has become one of the most traditional pizzas in Brazil, holding eight best pizza awards. The secret Camelo recipe for homemade sauce and dough has been passed along for four generations. Pizza Chef Antônio Macedo, recognized for his creations, conceived the unique formula and the pizza menu served for dinner since 1963. He is, to this date, in charge of ensuring that the pizza quality of all Camelo stores is kept up to the highest standards. With its thin crust and diversified pizzas, and toppings, “Camelo Family” brings along the same atmosphere, cozy environment and pizza at its best. We bring to Orlando a full-service pizzeria, with a full-bar and a layout carefully designed to host families, friends, corporate and private functions, aiming at creating good memories and redefining your pizza experience.
