Lonnie’s Fusion Cuisine of Lake Mary was voted Best Seafood restaurant by the readers of Scott Joseph’s Orlando Restaurant Guide in our Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants. Cress of DeLand was second and Todd English’s bluezoo at the Swan and Dolphin Resort was third.
Sheila Campbell Parsons wrote: “Lonnie’s is a fabulous restaurant. The food is not only fresh but amazing. Chef Lonnie cooks the fish to perfection and the flavors are incredible.” And Crystal Hobby Homer added, “I know that I'm going to have a wonderful meal with a pleasant dining experience when I go there.”
About Cress, which just recently returned to operating as a restaurant with regular hours, Judy Buček wrote: “Cress Seafood is off the chain. Always perfectly cooked with amazing levels of flavour and wonderful presentation. Exquisite fine dining.”
Voting was robust for this category. It’s nice to see so many people passionate about good seafood, and it’s even nicer to see so many restaurants stepping up to serve it.
