For 35 years, downtown Gainesville's Wine and Cheese Gallery has held court in a quaint white wood house that INsite Gainesville writer Jennifer Coleman calls "reminiscent of a classic French bistro.? Owners Bunky Mastin and Wade Tyler curate a larder with more than 3,000 varieties of wine, an international selection of cheeses, rich chocolates, and gourmet lunch items served on the charming patio bistro or inside at Panache, the shop?s restaurant.

Panache's chefs pull from the Gallery?s stock to harmoniously blend flavors in sandwiches such as The Normandy, which combines brie, apples, and cinnamon on french bread and is garnished with a miniature beret, and the turkey and havarti, which is balanced by an Adriatic fig spread. Patrons can also nibble on the quiche du jour or hide their faces from exes in soups that vary depending on the whims of the chef, with one recent creation involving sage matzo balls in the affairs of a ginger-chicken broth.

The aroma of frying fish beckons diners toward Sam’s Crystal River Seafood's front door, behind which seafood, pasta, and steak are prepared amid family-friendly environs. The menu unfolds with appetizers such as double-breaded fried green tomatoes, served with house-made ranch dressing, based on the recipe famously eaten by all Wild West cowpokes ($4.49/half, $6.99/full). Shrimp can be ordered fried, broiled, blackened, or boiled, and chefs fill stuffed flounder with crab meat before broiling the fish and sprinkling monterey cheese on top ($13.99). Lobster bites are fried golden brown, providing a simpler way to explore the sea creature’s interior than administering a Myers-Briggs test ($7.49). Betray surf for turf with a clandestine rendezvous with a 12-ounce new york strip steak ($15.99), or opt to lunch on noontime burgers and sandwich fare. Ocean appreciation flourishes within the nautically themed interior, which includes a 50-gallon fish tank and walls festooned with fish replicas and oars.

With its checkered tiled floor, glass counter and overhead chalkboard menu, Pinegrove Market & Deli is a local institution serving up deli food for over 40 years. This modest space is known primarily for their burgers, which are fresh-ground directly from the butcher, while steaks are dry-aged in-house for quality that rivals top steakhouses. Pinegrove also offers Cuban sandwiches, reubens, New York pastrami and a touch of Middle Eastern flavors, from tabbouleh to hummus. Portions often feed two or three, or make excellent leftovers for a next-day feast. With indoor and outdoor seating, the only thing that gives away their greatness is the amount of cars in the parking lot.
