» Winter Park Fish Co., Winter Park — Some traditional restaurateurs oppose trucks; George Vogelbacher, the grand eminence behind Le Cordon Bleu, isn't one of them. He runs Winter Park Fish Co., a rolling outpost to reach new markets.

» Brick & Fire, Orlando — Brick & Fire takes its pizza oven on the road.

» Audrey's Punk Kitchen, Orlando — Audrey's Punk Kitchen serves up vegan goodies with all manner of empanadas, curries, jerk and cheesesteaks in between.
