This is a great time of year to live in Florida, with the summer heat and steady rains comes wonderful produce. Our farmers are plentiful and talented, bringing us the chance to create phenomenal dishes, all from within the state. As Chefs, we strive to use local sourcing and organic when we can, we want to educate our guests as well as feeding them.
We had a young, hip group in a few weeks ago, and were asked to produce a menu to WOW this well-traveled group. When it comes down to it, the beautiful produce and meats we can get, really stand on their own, simple speaks loudly here. That was the focus we drove toward, keep an organic, local and sustainable menu, featuring creative presentation and simplified, screamingly good flavors.
It is a pleasure to feed people interested in food, in what we do- like any profession, when you come across someone interested in what you do, it is very reaffirming.
The group loved it all, the food, the lighting, the lounge feel, and the entertainment was amazing. If you ever get a chance to see, meet or hear Anita Goodstory- you will not regret, I had belly cramps from holding in my giggles. What a personality!
Cheers to eating local, supporting small farmers and having the tastiest, freshest ingrediants available!
