Glass Art on the Hidden Veranda E

We recently had the great pleasure of attending a wonderful evening called Dinner With Artists, which is put on by the Naples Art Association. It was a mixture of entertainment, learning and delicious food, which was a perfect equation for fun.

If you find yourself with the opportunity to attend one of these events, we highly recommend you do so! In fact, you may want to check out the next event, coming up in May at Coast in Edgewater Beach Hotel.

Getting to Know Beefstro's Gourmet Beefs

Just off Naples Boulevard (in the JoAnn Fabric’s shopping center near Costco), there is a place where natives of Chicago seem to gravitate. It’s almost as if they can smell the beef and the Chicago dawgs in the air. And you know if the natives and visitors from Chicago fill the restaurant on a regular basis — the food is definitely authentic and totally delicious.

If you haven’t yet heard of Beefstro’s but you love hand-crafted sandwiches which are full of flavor and made with love, you need to find your way over there soon.

Getting to Know The Cider Press Cafe

From the busy street outside, you would never imagine the culinary wonders that await you inside the doors of The Cider Press Cafe. Tucked away in a strip mall at the intersection of Immokalee and Airport Pulling, The Cider Press Cafe is now one of my favorite restaurants in Naples and if you truly love incredible food, you have got to visit soon!

Inside the Rusty Bucket

Foodie Naples was recently invited to get to know Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern, one of Mercato’s newest editions. If you haven’t visited yet, but are a fan of sports bars and pub food, make sure to visit soon! The food was really good, creatively different but still familiar and the menu offers a lot of variety and nice sized portions. (more…)

Your Pro Kitchen Naples

During our last few weeks of meeting people in the foodie scene of Naples and getting to know lots of business owners, we have found that there are a surprisingly large number of independent and smaller catering and bakery companies within Collier County. And operating under the full restraints of local laws is not all that easy if you think you’re just going to pop open a company and start making food in your kitchen.

Inside Rosedale Brick Oven Pizzeria

Although it’s been open since April 2011, not many people know that Rosedale Brick Oven Pizzeria is there, tucked away in the NE corner of Pine Ridge and Goodlette-Frank by the Starbucks. If we hadn’t been told about it by a friend, we probably still never would have gone in there, despite driving past it almost daily. When you do go, you will find a down to earth, amazingly delicious New York-style Italian restaurant. Our first visit several months ago left us with full bellies and a great taste in our mouth so I highly recommend you check them out.

A Look Inside HobNob

Nestled between the hustle and bustle of the usual fair of Fifth Avenue South, you will find one of Naples’ newest and most unique restaurants, HobNob. Only open since mid-December 2013, HobNob has already been named one of Open Table’s Hottest 100 Restaurants. And for good reason. The restaurant offers the younger crowd (30- to 50-somethings) of Naples a place to let their hair down while they socialize and enjoy a menu of clean, fresh American cuisine in a fun environment — something Naples desperately needs.
