One of my favorite places at Disney Springs is Chef Art Smith’s restaurant: Homecomin’ Kitchen. When you walk in, the restaurant feels like Florida!

Quote from Chef Art Smith

I have had the honor of meeting Chef Art Smith a few times and every time, he exudes a warmness. Unassuming and always smiling, he’s loves sharing his love for food!

Check out this video produced by VISIT FLORIDA and you’ll see what I’m talking about!

Chef Art was raised in Florida; he’s actually a sixth generation Floridian.  He decided to open a restaurant in Florida at Disney Springs called Homecomin’ because it’s his coming back home to Florida. I love the vibe of the restaurant and I always feel welcomed by the staff every time I come back.

These are quite literally the best fried green tomatoes I have ever had!

You can’t have Floridian cuisine without shrimp and grits.
