Hot Caboose Island Grille displays the words "Naples 0.15 Miles" and "Everglades 54 Miles" on its façade—an indication of Bonita Springs' surrounding attractions. In between the two mile markers are the welcoming words "You May Rest". Travelers looking for a pit stop can stop by and fill up on the eatery's island-themed eats, which include jerk chicken. The kitchen staff also prepares homemade cornbread, flavorful burgers with avocado and fried egg, and seared grouper and shrimp salad. Additionally, eaters can visit the restaurant's bar for a drink or its patio for some sunshine.
Sara Nohemy at Marina's takes care of hair. She can cut it, blow-dry it, style it, and condition it to make it look its best. The skilled stylist might also render it as colorful as a peacock through single-process coloring treatments or highlights. Sara can also mitigate frizz with keratin treatments rendered with Keratin Complex products.
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.
Upscale American cuisine unites with an extensive wine list at Wylds Cafe, and it's all administered by a talented kitchen staff. Their menu catalogs elegant entrees such as peppered Hawaiian tuna with sweet potato chips and soy butter sauce garnished with pickled ginger and wasabi. They also prepare braised cranberry barbecue boneless short ribs. Both the wine menu and the 30-strong beer list showcase imported and domestic libations, from The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc originating in New Zealand to Flying Dog's Doggy-Style pale ale. When it comes to aesthetics, the restaurant matches the cuisine in its panache. Rich but dark reds and browns cover the walls and allow blue sconces and colorful paintings—both abstract and grounded in everyday scenery—to pop with vivacity. White linens drape the tables, and track lighting precludes interruption by an obstreperous genie.
Locally produced artwork lines the walls of this charming neighborhood café, and organic, fair-trade coffees fill the air with frothy fragrances. The life cycle of each health-conscious menu item is quite short, as each selection is made to order and swiftly served to the detachable jaws of voracious vertebrates. Accelerate over midday speed bumps with an asian chicken salad, tossed with mandarin-orange-ginger dressing ($7.95). A signature espresso drink, such as the white-berry mocha, tickles tired brains back to life with an uncommon combo of chocolate and fruit flavors ($3.10 for 16 oz.). At dinnertime, bacon-starved stomachs can be sated with a filet mignon in a demi-glace sauce, floating in clouds of fluffy garlic mashed potatoes ($19.95). Menu items and drink lists change regularly, so stop in to Cgrape and see what’s cooking, brewing, and pouring.
