Izziban Sushi and BBQ
This is undoubtedly the largest sushi restaurant I’ve ever seen. Izziban Sushi & BBQ occupies a warehouse sized building on the shore of Lake Barton, which lies between Semoran Boulevard and Orlando Executive Airport. There have been a few failed businesses here, including a gay bar.
There is an immense indoor dining area and a couple of very large sushi bars, including one that is shaped like the bow of a big boat.

Market to Table
Market to Table, a new restaurant that took over the AlFresco space in the Roper Building in Winter Garden, started in an actual market.
From a booth in Plant Street Market, Ryan Freelove sold stocks, soups and other products for home cooks before opening the restaurant last year. Don’t assume, as I did, that Market to Table is just another way of saying farm to table. Freelove freely admits that he sources some ingredients from more conventional means, including major distributors. (Though not exclusively; indeed some items come from as close as a rooftop garden.)
But that does not diminish the overall high quality of the food served here....
