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.

Willie Jewell’s is a great new addition to the restaurants in World Golf Village! I stopped by last week for the first time to check it out and get my barbeque fix. Let me tell you, the food does not disappoint. The Adeeb Family, the owners of Bono’s Pit Bar-B-Q and Willie Jewell’s, really got it right with this one!

Willie Jewell’s offers finger-licking appetizers like Country Corn Fritters, Fried Okra, Chicken Wings, Fried Pickles, and Homestyle Onion Rings. The corn fritters dipped in their homemade ranch dressing is the way to go! They also have a variety of salads, sandwiches, big ol’ platters and southern sides! Our group went for the Crispy Chicken Salad, the Beef Brisket platter and the Smoked Turkey Platter. I tried bites of the mac-n-cheese, collard greens and fries and they were all delicious.

Move over cupcakes.  Frozen yogurt is the new favorite treat.  You can serve yourself, mix and match flavors, and get exactly the amount you want.  Then create your own masterpiece by choosing from a variety of toppings.  Frozen yogurt is also a slightly healthier dessert choice since it’s non-fat, but that’s beside the point because it tastes creamy, sweet and delicious!  So I was thrilled when a new Yogurt shop opened in Palencia.  A few days ago my friend and I went to visit Yogurt Motion located in the Palencia Commons. We met the owner, Scott Sance, who was glad to talk to us about the new, self-serve frozen yogurt shop.

blackfly restaurantI’ve been excited to try Blackfly for a while now.  It started when I first noticed the building one morning following a bike ride in Anastasia State Park.  The restaurant sits just east of the Bridge of Lions and I noticed it because it had been painted a refreshing Caribbean blue.  My curiosity continued when I found out that the same folks who own Collage restaurant in downtown St. Augustine were partners in the new restaurant.  Well, my curiosity was quenched Friday, July 20 when my husband and I enjoyed a great evening at Blackfly.

capsIf you doubt how fortunate we are to live in Florida, you should go spend an afternoon at Caps on the Water in St. Augustine.  It is located on the Intracoastal Waterway and no matter if you choose to dine inside or out on the large deck, you are sure to have a spectacular view of the sun setting over the water, but if you sit outside, you are treated to the ocean breeze floating in from the Atlantic.  The restaurant began its existence as a fish camp back in 1947 and was converted to a restaurant in 1981.
