Visiting Sanibel/Siesta/St. Pete....recs and comments?
Hi there gulf coast Florida Hounds! We are coming down from grey, cold Boston for a week of sunshine, relaxation and, of course, good chow. We are fish eating vegetarians and prefer healthier food. We don't want too many very expensive places...we love "little joints" with great food. Here are some spots I've scoped off the boards. I'd love comments and other suggestions.
Mad Take Out (Spelt pizza!!)
Broken Egg (WW French toast..yumm!)
Dry Dock Grill
Star Fish company
Simon's coffeehouse (vegetarian fare?)
Leafy Greens Cafe
Central Cafe and Organics
Lenny's (better breakfast spot?)
So that's my starting point.....now I need hounds to point me in the right direction!
Several of your St. Pete recs are not near St. Pete. Lenny's, Tio Pepe's, and Keegan's are all Clearwater locations - which can be up to 45 minutes away depending on where in St. Pete you are. Are you staying in one location and driving to the three locations, or are you hopping around?
I live in between Clearwater and St. Pete, and I found this board posting very helpful in finding new places to enjoy. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/587920
In St. Pete, I love Hook's Sushi and Thai. I make that same 45 minute drive just to get
We are staying close to Clearwater, which is why I chose those spots as starting points. Thanks for the link....I did see it and checked out a few of those recs. Since many were "meat based", or far from Clearwater area,I thought I'd still ask for recs. We really aren't interested in having any ethnic foods, as we get a great selection of those here in Boston.
In St. Pete, Ceviche is a great tapas bar near the water downtown and Keegan's isn't in St. Pete per se, but is wonderful all the same--don't miss the octopus/garlic appetiser.
