Starting an intrastate Florida trip next week. Working our way down from Panhandle. First night in Altamonte Springs with reservations at Seasons 52. Looking for non-chain restaurants in Viera/Melbourne, Port St. Lucie, Cape Coral/Fort Meyers, Wesley Chapel. A good wine list would make us happy. Any suggestions?

    Matt's Casbah in downtown Melbourne. They have their own wine shop down the street.

    cavandre's recommendations are also great.

        All are very good to excellent restaurants..Cru is the most chef driven.

          A little north of Viera/Melbourne there's Café Margaux & Merrit's Table.
