One of the best restaurants in the Lake Nona area, Canvas, has recently done a menu revamp, adding more options while still keeping some of the popular items on the menu. The reason behind the menu overhaul was that the neighborhood wanted them (Canvas) to be less upscale and more casual. That said, the executive chef, Bryan Thomas, goal was to maintain quality and keep a lot of cool stuff about the menu but add more approachable offerings for the Neighborhood’s less- adventurous diners. According to the chef, this was no easy task but I can say they have done a great Job at balancing and maintaining the quality on the menu.
Sherry Braised Octopus – Chorizo – Crispy Fingerling potatoes – caper vinaigrette.
A classic combination that will never get old. Octopus was cooked perfectly, one of my favorites of the night.

Fresh Ricotta with Apricot and Cherries.
Sauteed Shrimp Mofongo – Roasted Roma Tomatoes – Citrus-Saffron Broth.
