An original concept and the first Tavistock Restaurant Collection location in Central Florida, Canvas was developed in partnership with Tavistock Development Company and Concentrics Restaurants. Concentrics Restaurants is an Atlanta-based restaurant operating group that offers full-service design, development, consulting and management and provides comprehensive food and beverage solutions for freestanding restaurants and hotels across the nation including locally known Luma on Park, Prato and Slate. Canvas marks the 15th unique concept within Tavistock Restaurant Collection’s domestic portfolio.

The 278-seat restaurant is one of Orlando’s only waterfront dining destinations. In addition to the restaurant, the new venue will also include an adjacent market where guests can enjoy freshly prepared breakfast and lunch items from the Canvas kitchen and peruse a hand-selected collection of housewares, books and local goods.
