To reach Randy's Paradise Shrimp cafe, seafood has to make an epic journey. Randy's flies in its lobsters from Maine, gets pink shrimp straight from the Gulf, and grabs other seafood?from grouper to tripletail?not long after it arrives on the docks, delivered by fishermen and business-savvy pelicans. From there, the chefs work delicious wonders with the fresh ingredients, cooking up fish tacos and filling baskets with deep-fried grouper fingers. The cafe also sells fresh seafood and gourmet grocery items to take home, including al dente pasta and seafood dips.
Bernwood Grille & Catering Co. serves up an eclectic array of breakfast and lunch dishes. Breakfast is served all day, so both early risers and night owls can enjoy items such as greek omelets, blueberry pancakes, and vanilla-cinnamon french toast. Afternoon eats include gyro meals, a blackened chicken Waldorf salad, and homemade soups. Bernwood's culinary creations are also available as custom catered meals for events and corporate functions of any size.
Futuro’s whimsical dining room bursts with eye-popping colors. Bright green clapboard shutters festoon yellow walls lined with disarmingly rectangular blue booths. Nearby, domestic and imported beers fill frosty glasses at a hot-pink tiki bar. Flamingo lawn statues and wall art shaped like mermaids, sea turtles, palm trees, and sand dollars further enhance the eatery’s laid-back, beachy vibe.
Just beyond this casually quirky space, chefs bustle in the kitchen, crafting housemade pizza dough and bread for hot subs that ensconce everything from philly cheesesteak to eggplant parmesan. They also sling half-pound burgers, 15 flavors of wings, and hearty pasta dinners that are smothered in more marinara sauce than Chef Boyardee’s bath towels.
For a classic slice of Americana, customers need only to cross the threshold of Mel's Diner. Hungry diners can pull up to the counter or at a table to order from a menu of classic diner food. And this kitchen takes care in crafting every meal. The crew roast turkeys and smokes ribs in house and uses their very own hands to bread fish and patty burgers. A locally sourced menu of fresh grouper, salmon, New York strip steak, and natural chicken breast offers a variety of flavorful protein options. The eatery sates morning appetites as well, with fluffy just-baked biscuits covered in housemade gravy instead of yesterday's coffee.
At Hot Space Pizza Bar & Grill, the day doesn't begin with the first hand-tossed pie. The comfortable bar and grill opens early for breakfast, serving up generous portions of favorites including omelets, french toast, and scratch-made biscuits and gravy. Later, they fire up the pizza oven, which soon becomes the temporary home of calzones, hot subs, and the bar's namesake pies. Pizzas bubble with flavor from fresh meat and veggie toppings and daily-made dough, and include house specialties such as the polish pierogies, smoked polish sausage on sauerkraut, and the Philly steak served on house-made bread.
Lil Italy Bistro?s chefs decorate pizza pies as wide as 18 inches with discs of pepperoni, seasonal veggies, and a smattering of cheeses. The Italian-influenced chefs follow family recipes when they build the layers of lasagna and bread veal and chicken cutlets for parmigiana dishes. For lighter appetites, the chefs tuck sweet and savory sausage into sub sandwiches and serve Italian wedding soup in a traditional wedding envelope. Ruby red curtains cover the walls in the dining room, matching the red umbrellas and chairs that decorate the outdoor patio.
