Spotted: Johnnies Hideaway Restaurant Orlando

Johnnie’s features USDA Prime & Choice steaks, dry aged on premises, fresh fish hand-cut daily, simply prepared with emphasis towards old Florida & floribbean cuisine and a fabulous raw bar with the emphasis on fresh, fresh, fresh & nostalgically cutting edge. All of the dishes were treats for the palate my favorite taste from our visit was the truffled portabello mushrooms with a hint of cayenne and parsley. Needless to say Johnnies will be seeing me again but more importantly its time they see you.  Read more and see pics after the jump Read More »

GETWhipped: Bugatti Unveils New $1.4 Million 4-Door Family Car

Given the superlative nature and awesome speed of Bugatti’s already-legendary, 250-plus-mph Veyron supercar, interest in the manufacturer’s follow-up is intense. The company had previously gone on record as saying that its next model wouldn’t be a supercar, but details were scant—until now. In a recent article from the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer confirms that the new car will be in the vein of the controversial 16 C Galibier concept, which we examined (and this scribe didn’t particularly like) back in 2009. It will seat four and have a generous trunk, Dürheimer says; you can bet that a set of fitted luggage will be one of the pricey options. We care somewhat more about what’s fitted up front, of course, which the article claims will be a 16-cylinder powerplant, although output wasn’t mentioned. (The W-16 under the Galibier’s butterfly bonnet delivers a mere 800 hp, somewhat less than the 1001 churned up by the 8.0-liter W-16 in the mid-engine Veyron.) The Galibier concept is big, though, so don’t expect Veyron-esque, sub-three-second 0-to-60 sprints no matter how much carbon fiber and aluminum the new car contains. Interestingly, a hybrid model (presumably a plug-in) is on the docket as well, with an electric-only driving range of about 25 miles, according to Dürheimer.
