Sushi is often as artful as it is appetizing and in Orlando there are no shortage of options. Not surprisingly, some of the city's best venues come in the form of restaurants that hide in plain sight, tucked into some or other shopping center awaiting discovery. Some are exceedingly local, as frequented by take-out customers as dine-in, others are superb for date night – whether casual or fancy. Topping our list: Seito Baldwin Park, where Chef Austin Boyd and his crew are churning out colorful, flavorful, succulent bites, along with a host of sushi alternatives for the folks who like their Japanese (and "new Japanese" to kiss a hot pan or two before heading to the plate. Not far from here, Kabooki sits in one of those aforementioned strip malls, though the cosmopolitan atmosphere you'll find inside is world's away. Other such gems, some more upscale than others, include East Orlando's Fujiyama, Winter Park's Kiko and – for food truck aficionados – Sushi Seoul on the Roll. The tony Dr. Phillips neighborhood contributes here, as well, with well-known favorite Dragonfly Robata Grill (bring your boss, your date, your grandmother) and truly "hidden" gem Nagoya, an alley-ensconced hideaway you'll be happy to find.
