New Menu at Canvas

13615 Sachs Ave.
Orlando, FL 32827
407-313-7800

Lake Nona’s premier waterfront restaurant with chef driven, New American fare, has just launched a new menu featuring 22 additions. The changes are designed to showcase the best in fresh and upscale cuisine with an approachable feel.

Led by Executive Chef Bryan Thoman, the Canvas restaurant menu features new American cuisine that is influenced by Florida’s Southern and Latin American roots with a focus on seasonal and regional produce as well as an abundance of fresh, Florida seafood. The chef driven menu is filled with shareable appetizers, creative salads and sandwiches, hearty entrees, and wood grilled pizzas and flatbreads.


Chef Bryan Thoman’s brand new dish selection reflects an array of reinvigorated plates which cater to the diverse palate of each guest. Items like Habanero Glazed Chicken Wings, Black & Blue Burger, Seared Scottish Salmon Fillet, and others are perfect entrees for summer.

Many of the dish ingredients present a library of herbs, tomatoes, and peppers grown in the restaurant’s outdoor garden, highlighted in plates like the Heirloom Tomato Panzanella Salad and Vegetarian Bianco Flatbread.

Every detail of Canvas has been thoughtfully designed and planned to create a welcoming space for guests. The restaurant’s exhibition style kitchen opens to the main dining room while floor-to-ceiling windows provide picturesque waterfront views.


The Summer Vacation cocktail at canvas, truly tastes like one. This is made with passion fruit, lemon, pineapple, Solerno blood orange liqueur and my all time favorite rum, Flor de Cana.

This Strawberry Rhubarb Mule is certainly not your average mule. The drink contains mint, housemade strawberry-rhubarb jam, Fever Tree ginger beer & Reyka vodka. Reyka Vodka is the only vodka in the world made with a Carter-Head still, and the only vodka served in a tiny one… really love the mini still for a mule mug.

Jumbo Lump Crab Cake features arugula, pickled fennel, and jazzy Louisiana remoulade for a nice flavor with a little bite on the end.

Slow Roasted Pork Belly at Canvas is always a great choice. Made with soy-key lime marinade, charred celery, pickled fennel, mint and a mango jalapeno sauce, this pork belly is filled with great flavors.

Octopus is not for everybody, but if it’s cooked right, you might become a fan, and this Sherry Braised Octopus is a great way to challenge your taste buds. Cooked in a Cast iron skillet with chorizo, crispy fingerling potatoes, wilted arugula and caper vinaigrette, this was some of the best octopus I've had.

The Heirloom Tomato Panzanella is a great new addition for summertime. This salad contains Bermuda onions, basil, mint, garlic roasted ciabatta, arugula and a red wine vinaigrette.

Don't take your chances burning good meat on your grill… head over to Canvas and order this Grilled Prime New York Strip Steak with goat cheese potato au gratin, wilted baby spinach and some wonderful garlic butter, you won't regret it.

When you have your own garden and are as creative as Chef Thoman, you don't make a boring old cheesecake, you make a Pistachio, Strawberry and Rhubarb Cheesecake with goat cheese, and a salted caramel brittle. It was ridiculously good too.

The market part of Canvas is open daily for breakfast and lunch. Guests can stop in and have a meal at the market’s communal table or chose from a variety of grab and go options, gourmet coffee, and fresh-squeezed juice and smoothies. The market also has comfortable seating and nooks where patrons can enjoy food and complimentary WiFi.

LIQS Cocktail Shots

No Bartender? No Problem...Say Hello to LIQS, the world's first ready to drink cocktail shots.

LIQS™ is a line of super premium “cocktail shots,” that announced the launch of its ready-to-drink shots in exclusive locations throughout Florida and nationwide by fall 2014.

Born from the minds of two entrepreneurs from Miami and New York, LIQS™ is the first premium prepared shot brand. Quality crafted cocktail recipes are packaged into unique, innovative ready-to-drink shots that are sold at retail locations. They are portable and are ready to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.

LIQS™ is far from the ‘test-tube’ style shooters sold in some nightclubs. Instead, the LIQS™ duo offers custom designed super-premium shots in high quality plastic shot glasses that are ideal for boating, pool or beach parties, home entertaining, catered affairs, music festivals and sporting events.  

Using natural flavors and premium spirits, LIQS™ established a new spirits category: ‘Cocktail Shots.’ These cocktails in a shot are delicious, uniquely flavored, low calorie, kosher and made in the USA. LIQS debuted with 4 flavors: Tequila Cinnamon Orange, Vodka Cucumber Lime, Vodka Lychee Grapefruit and Vodka Kamikaze.

“The sophisticated drinker is no longer satisfied with low-quality spirits and artificial ingredients,” said Co-Founder Harley Bauer. The team behind LIQS conducted extensive experimentation and blind tastings that led them to launch with these four flavors that were the unanimous favorites of the discerning beverage consumer.

LIQS™ Cocktail Shots are packaged in 3, making them perfect for those seeking indulgence and convenience. Ideal for any occasion, LIQS™ delivers mixology without the mixologist. 

National debut across Florida and around the country by fall 2014.
