In Downtown Orlando's trendy Thornton Park district, this casual dining spot aims to be urbane. It caters to locals, but it's loud enough and casual enough to welcome kids wearing mouse ears. With the general ambience of a city sports bar—including flat-screen TVs on all the walls (but renovations planned)—Cityfish dispenses basic, well-prepared, fresh fish, most of it simply grilled, blackened, Parmesan-crusted or fried (your choice). Once guests select the fish and preparation, they also choose to have it served in a sandwich, on a Southwestern salad, or plated with smoked-bacon succotash, red bliss potatoes, and jalapeno hushpuppies. The appetizers reveal creative twists introduced or improved by Orlando's homegrown celeb-chef Greg Richie, who took over the kitchen in late 2013. Examples are flash-fried crispy pickle slices with smoky Bloody Mary aioli, and buffalo shrimp. The big patio filled with tables shaded by large umbrellas is a great place to spend a few unhurried hours in cool weather.
