1st: Hollerbach's German Restaurant,
For over 20 years, Hollerbach's in Sanford has provided residents of Central Florida authentic German cuisine from creamy obatzda teller to glistening German chocolate cake. We highly recommend the gurkensalat and sweet red cabbage along with a pint of Helles bier. Diners can celebrate with live German Polka Thursday through Sunday hosted by Hollerbach's in-house performers Jimmy and Eckhard, who play the spoons, the Alpine bells and Alpine horn. Hollerbach's is also home to a rooftop Biergarten, the new Art Haus gallery and the nearby German Market where you can purchase German candy and Trachten threads.

2nd: Linda's La Cantina,

3rd: High Tide Harry's,

Local Legends: Jason and Sue Chin

This (super)power couple must have the ability to freeze time, because somehow they split their energies among all the entities in their Good Salt Restaurant Group, including Seito Sushi, The Osprey, Reyes Mezcaleria and The Monroe. The Chins are staunch supporters of local chef talent and front-of-house rockstars, and they're steady builders of Orlando's fine dining scene.
