Celebrate Orlando’s culinary scene with Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining®, now in its 14th year.  Running from Aug. 23 through Sept. 30, 2019, it’s your chance to enjoy three-course, prix-fixe dinners at more than 120 of Orlando’s best restaurants for just $35 per person.  Additionally, through Visit Orlando, $1 from each meal will benefit two local charities: the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Orlando and Lighthouse Central Florida.

We were invited to Canvas Restaurant & Market in Lake Nona for a sneak peek and taste of their Magical Dining menu this year.

The Canvas restaurant menu features new American cuisine influenced by Florida. Executive Chef, Jason Bergeron, focuses on seasonal and regional produce as well as an abundance of fresh, Florida seafood.
