Superfoods are a growing craze in the culinary world, and they are definitely worth the hype. To be considered a superfood, an item must be exceptionally nutritious and offer a distinctive array of health benefits when consumed regularly. Salmon fits perfectly into this category of food, because it is rich in good fats, vitamins, and minerals that have amazing effects on the body—not to mention it is delicious both cooked and raw. For a savory cooked choice of salmon, we recommend our horseradish and orange crusted salmon, served over brown rice & roasted vegetables with dill cream sauce! For those who prefer raw salmon, enjoy our many sushi options including but not limited to the Tokyo Sunrise, Rainbow Roll or the Triple Tail roll!
Salmon is rich in vitamin D, which is essential for the absorption of calcium into the blood stream. Calcium is necessary for healthy bone regeneration and bone density retention, so it is important for the body to absorb plenty of it from foods like milk and leafy greens. While the sun is the ultimate source of vitamin D, sun exposure can be harmful to your health. Therefore it is important to have other sources such as delicious salmon.
Eating salmon is an excellent way to improve your brain health and boost your brain power. Salmon contains a variety of omega-3 fatty acid called DHA, which can reduce inflammation in the brain and fend off depression and dementia. It’s not just delicious—it’s highly beneficial to your health.
If your doctor has told you to eat less red meat and animal fat, try replacing steaks and burgers with salmon filets. The anti-inflammatory properties of DHA also have incredible heart health benefits such as improved circulation and lower blood pressure. Plus, salmon provides antioxidant protection for the heart from the nutrient selenium.
To tap into the health benefits of salmon with a delectable char broiled filet, hand crafted nigiri, or inventive sushi rolls, visit blu on the avenue for lunch or dinner. You can learn more about us at our website or call us at (407) 960-3778 to make reservations for dinner in downtown Orlando.

Six days a week, many Americans adhere to the three-meal a day routine of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Once Sunday rolls around, however, all culinary bets are off. For more than a century, brunch has been the one meal a week where participants can make their own dining rules. Do you want breakfast after noon? Do you wish you could have lunch during the morning hours? No matter what appeals to your midday taste buds, there’s a good chance that a restaurant’s brunch menu has it. The following information details how brunch came to be.
Not too long ago in American history, moms across the country were responsible for making every meal each day. As more and more women traded their house aprons for office briefcases, they were left with less time to prepare their families’ breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Once the weekend arrived, many working women were simply too worn out to create a meal from scratch every Sunday. Hence, more American families started heading out to brunch.
Churchgoing citizens may deserve the praise for introducing brunch to the rest of the American restaurant-going public. In some circles, it was once customary to refrain from eating before church. Once a person’s religious obligations were done for the day, he could dine to his heart’s content. This widespread ritual among the faithful may be the earliest incarnation of modern-day brunch.
The rich and famous have long influenced what the rest of America favors. Brunch is no exception. Prior to six-hour coast-to-coast flights, many celebrities traveled by train. The long hours between New York and Los Angeles demanded a stop-off where the Hollywood elite could stretch their legs and grab a bite to eat.
blu on the avenue offers a mouth-watering brunch menu for patrons in the greater Orlando area. If you want a dining experience that allows you to enjoy fantastic food in a friendly atmosphere, look no further than blu on the avenue. For restaurant hours or reservations, call (407) 960-3778.

A premium sushi experience requires fresh ingredients and culinary inspiration. At blu on the avenue, we strive to provide our patrons with innovative and delectable sushi selections. Though our sushi menu has traditional options such as the spicy tuna roll and rainbow roll, we also offer several original creations. If you’re looking for some heat, try our shabuya roll, which combines delicately steamed scallops with chili powder, spicy mayo, and scallions. When in the Sunshine State, do as the locals do and taste our Florida roll. With seared salmon, tempura shrimp, scallions, and cream cheese, this unique sushi roll packs in the flavor. Of course, no trip to blu on the avenue is complete without the blu roll: shrimp tempura, beef tenderloin, and cucumber topped with sriracha and eel sauce. Like its restaurant namesake, this roll combines the best of surf and turf.
Are you ready to try our delicious sushi rolls? Call blu on the avenue at (407) 960-3778 for a reservation. Our Orlando restaurant offers a diverse menu selection that appeals to beef and seafood lovers alike.
