If you believe in the importance of eating healthy while supporting your local farmers, and you want to experience a little local southern fare with a St. Augustine flair, you definitely have to try The Floridian restaurant located in the Spanish Quarter of downtown St. Augustine.  Even Chef Emeril Lagasse will highly recommend you do so, as The Floridian was featured in an episode of the Cooking Channel’s Emeril’s Florida, which featured Farm-to-Table venues.
Owners Jeff and Chef Genie McNally opened The Floridian in 2010 showcasing a great deal of respect for St. Augustine’s history and culture.  Their passion for food is evident when you peruse their menu, which provides a various array of options from seafood, steak, chicken, right down to vegetarian or gluten-free.  The not-your-ordinary appetizer options of Fried Green Tomatoes, Pickled Pepper Shrimps or Biscuits and Belly (to name just a few) are a great way to start your mouth to watering for the main entrée.  If you have a hard time picking just one appetizer, wait until you get to the main course!  The Cajuns might be known for their jambalayas and crawfish pies, but the Minorcans of St. Augustine are known for their pilaus and cornbread, which The Floridian proudly showcases in its “Shrimp and Sausage Pilau” entrée.  It would be remiss to not include that the cornbread with this entrée is drizzled with hot honey.

10 Reasons to Call World Golf Village Home

Posted by: Peyton Davidson in Uncategorized

WGV EntranceThere are about a million reasons to live in our St. Augustine golf course community. From the nature at every turn to the level of quality in every detail of this master-planned community, we’ve got it all. When I did a little research, I discovered that 19 of Davidson Realty’s (and Companies) employees live, work, and play in World Golf Village. Talk about believing what you sell! I thought who better to describe a community than the people living in it!

We chose to buy in GroveWood because every time we drove through looking at houses, we saw families playing outside.  We loved the sizes of the yards.  We also loved the beautiful drive through the King and Bear. – Kristen Calhoun

Royal Pines FountainI feel like I’m driving onto an island when we come into Royal Pines since there are two bodies of water on each side of the road as you enter.  I love the way it’s a dead end street – one way in and one way out. I love the sidewalks on both sides of the street and mature oaks line the parkway. It’s the largest body of water in World Golf Village. I could go on and on! – Pauline and Woody Cake

We like that Turnberry is so convenient to I95 and has its own neighborhood pool. We felt that the pool would be a great place to meet neighbors. We love the entry into the neighborhood; I find it so restful to drive in with beautiful trees in the island between the traffic lanes and water views on both sides. The seasonal flowers and plantings used in the landscape add color and just make coming home each day so very pleasant. – Lynn Whitley

2-5When looking for a house my husband and I wanted a community with large lots, gated and everything green and beautiful.  Waterbury offered all of that and more.  The neighbors are friendly and the welcome sign as you enter the front gate always gives us a warm feeling. – Margherite MyersCommunity_Pool

I love living in Heritage Landing because as you drive into the community you can see the beautiful landscape and my 3 grandchildren (who live with me) enjoy the use of the amenities, as well as the sports programs, without having to leave the immediate area. They’re joined by the same children they go to school with, which brings me to the fact that because we live in Heritage we get to go to one of the best school systems – St. Johns County. The neighbors are like a big family, we have a lot of fun with block parties, cook outs and get-togethers. – Mirtha Barzaga
