  • Simply Nutrition
    College is a place that often kindles lasting friendships, as well as lasting eating habits based on haphazard diets of chips and day-old pizza. Chris Sanchez and Patrick Ortiz, proprietors of Simply Fit Meals, have managed to buck the latter part of this trend. The friendship they forged at the University of Houston continued after graduation, even as Patrick pursued a career in hotel management and Chris entered the world of marketing, eventually serving as store marketing director for Whole Foods. Their shared passion for healthy eating brought their disparate career paths together to form Simply Fit Meals, an amalgamation of Patrick's chef skills and Chris's marketing prowess. The challenge behind each one of Simply Fit Meals' recipes involves finding an equal balance between nutrition and flavor so that clients can stick to a regimen that's easy to maintain, unlike fad diets that involve raw foods consumed only in prime-numbered portions. The science of it, says Chris, is making it taste as if it's been freshly made, even after reheating, and to this end, Chris and Patrick are both avid consumers of their own meals. Chris claims he could eat—and has eaten—their mac 'n' cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The culinary team uses locally raised, free-range meats such as chicken and bison in virtually all of their creations, and concocts fresh-made ingredients whenever possible. The in-house dietitian guides clients toward their own fitness goals, as opposed to those dictated by fashion magazines or sentient elevators, who often lack tact.

  • Big Lou's New York Style Pizzeria
    According to their menu, Big Lou's chefs pledge allegiance to Italy's cuisine, but they prefer the way New Yorkers cook it. They bring this distinctive style of pizza to sunny Florida, rolling out paper-thin crusts topped with heaps of gooey cheese and savory toppings—including gorgonzola, hot sauce, tempeh, and meatballs. The staff serves their red and white New York-style pizzas by the steaming-hot pie or in monstrous slices, and guests can choose to customize their own gourmet pizza with a subset of more than 30 toppings. As calzones and Stromboli bubble up in ovens, chefs also create hot and cold subs, as well as a short list of carefully crafted timeless Italian dishes. Baked ziti, stuffed shells, and lasagna emanate ambrosial scents on the casual eatery's classic red-and-white checkered tablecloths—there's no reason not to use pieces of lasagna as checkers. Outside, alternatively, an expansive patio hosts live bands on the weekends.

  • Café C
    Café C crafts sandwiches and salads with flavors as light and airy as the breeze wafting by on the outdoor patio. Guests can sample from a selection of Asian-influenced salads inspired by the fresh produce, meats, and seasonings at the nearby Asian market. Delicious handmade sandwiches can be assembled on pretzel bread, pressed wheat, or fresh ciabatta. The café’s lively interior boasts bright colors and a mélange of lunch plates and glasses amassed from local thrift stores. Café C also keeps guests guessing with desserts baked fresh daily and a unique flavor of iced tea each day, including blueberry and slip 'n' slide.

  • Relish
    The culinary craftspeople at Relish appease appetites of all types by whipping up mouthwatering masterpieces from 100% certified Angus beef and topping them with a variety of veggies and sauces. Amid the maritime vibes of Relish's easygoing ambience, dive into a quarter-pound single ($4.25) or 3/4-pound triple ($6.25) burger, or add zest to a meaty concoction by topping it with a bevy of complimentary accouterments including coleslaw, pineapple, mushrooms, and banana peppers. Unlike Millard Fillmore's failed attempt at crossbreeding humans and sunflowers, the Half-the-Guilt burger successfully unites meat and vegetables by pairing one beef patty and one veggie patty between two tasty buns ($5.75). As a taste-bud-tantalizing bonus, a cascade of sauces—which ranges from standard staples such as ketchup and mustard, to daring amalgamations such as mango-habanero relish and wasabi aioli—stands by, enabling burgerfarers to outfit their tasty treats with a personal touch.

  • Sushi-2-Go
    The chefs at Sushi-2-Go's new location on the University of Florida campus wrap both classic and signature eight-piece sushi rolls to remedy hollow tummies. Guests can unseal an appetizer of pork or vegetable dumplings ($3) after requesting that they be fried, steamed, or bedazzled with rock-candy rhinestones. Chopsticks airlift the tampa roll's ($5) fried tilapia and cucumber to tongue runways, and the Flying Dragon roll ($7) drapes bites of eel over crisp cocoons of imitation crab, avocado, cucumber, and fish roe. Feel free to take a sabbatical from being a carnivore by opting for the sweet-potato roll ($5), which nestles mushrooms and avocados against fried sweet potato and a sassy supplement of spicy sauce. Fried shrimp and smoked salmon wear caps of seaweed sprinkles in the Hulk roll ($7), which transforms into a green seaweed fist and upends bottles of soy sauce if angered.
