Restaurant staff have allegedly made statements to customers suggesting that the new supervision certifying the restaurant is somehow sanctioned and overseen by O.R.B. Kashrus personnel. To be clear, the O.R.B. is in no way connected to the newly created Orthodox Vaad of Orlando, "OVO", which has taken over the supervision of this facility. The O.R.B does not oversee any restaurant or retail establishment in Orlando."
