Il Ponte Cafe’s chefs bake a bridge between Italian classics and the flavors of the greater Mediterranean. Herb-crusted salmon basks in rich lobster sauce, seared atop a grill until patterned with perfect lines or a cross-hatched portrait of the chef. The spears of kebabs thrust through both land and sea meats, accompanied to the table by freshly made hummus, and a lively fattoush salad casts off parsley, tomatoes, onions, pickles, olives, pita crisps, and feta cheese into a leafy lagoon of romaine and iceberg lettuce.

A brief look at Chinese Tea Culture's website reveals what a wealth of tea knowledge there is to be explored. For starters, there's the sheer volume of tea varieties: black tea, white tea, green tea, and oolong tea. Each has a handful of sub-varieties, and each of those sub-varieties has half a hundred health benefits. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's fruit tea, flower tea, chai tea, rooibos tea, and many, many more.
The website can be searched by ailment as well, as certain herbal remedies can be used to treat issues from sleeping disorders to digestive problems. Many of these all-natural, organic loose leaf teas can be brewed together to maximize health effects, and the experts at Chinese Tea Culture are happy to provide recipes and brewing instructions. Customers can improve a delicious cup of tea with the store's tea accessories, which include strainers, tea pots, candles, and home decor. Chinese Tea Culture demystifies the ancient healing art of blending, brewing, and sipping tea, and makes it fun as well.
Part bar and part bistro, 2 Palms Bar & Bistro is fully committed to fun. The Clearwater hangout keeps the party going all week, with an extended happy hour on weekdays and an evening schedule that features everything from karaoke and live comedy to trivia. But the food alone is worth the trip, thanks to a menu of modern pub grub that includes burgers, flatbreads, wraps, and cuban sandwiches. Any of the above pairs nicely with a draft beer or specialty cocktail.
Every day from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., the culinary artisans at Zapata's Café build sandwiches, fire flatbreads, and blend fresh smoothies using vibrant, fresh ingredients. The bright space comes alive at lunch time, when friends gather around rustic wooden tables before digging into berry-spinach salads or double-palming hearty pork burritos. To help diners wake up right each day, chefs also put together custom sandwiches and breakfast burritos stocked with veggies and eggs with inspirational messages written in salsa on the side.
