With a full menu of rejuvenating services and a luxurious setting, Poseidon Spa patches up battered soul sacks and helps patrons unwind from the rigors of everynight life. During a Swedish massage, customers relax for 50 minutes while a professional technician kneads knotty muscles and eases tendon tension using therapeutic oils ($110). To ward off headaches and attract soothing thoughts, an exotic-spice scalp treatment freshens your follicle field with invigorating oils and plows it with a firm massage ($20). A friendly nail technician completes the spa experience with a signature pedicure, which includes buffing, filing, polishing, and conditioning to keep nails strong enough to protect toes from shoe malfunctions, as well as a caviar-infused exfoliation and a marine collagen treatment to soften and hydrate the feet ($65).
The Rusty Spoon's kitchen team transforms locally sourced ingredients into succulent meat, pasta, and London-inspired gastropub fare on a rotating menu. First plates beckon dining duos to share seasonal flavors, which can include tastes such as clams poached in butter and lowered by pulley systems onto a toasted baguette. Chefs hand-cut fettuccini and weave the noodles around house-made sausage, and a coffee rub coats a grilled culotte of steak. Shrimp broth flows between local yellowtail snapper and clams from Cedar Creek in a stew accented by tomato, coconut and peanuts. For dessert, hands pull pieces from house-made doughnuts and plunge spoons into a trio of puddings. Like the Man in the Moon's facial expression, The Rusty Spoon's menu changes each week, and these dishes are an example of what may be available.
A kaleidoscope of diverse craft beers pours from the taps at Brew, with seven different drafts and dozens of bottled beers available on a single night. Bartenders pull tap handles and snap bottle caps off of beers from Rogue, Dogfish Head, Stone, and Abita, as well as other seasonal selections. The selection of beer complements hookah as well as pool. Brew’s team also mixes up an array of cocktails with liquors like Jack Daniels Honey and Jose 1800, named for the year in which Thomas Jefferson enjoyed his first jello shot.
Modeled after admired urban cafés in the Far East, Bento Cafe whips up hulking portions of fresh, authentic, and multifarious pan-Asian fare in a casual, modern environment. The menu dons an array of reinforced steel options to protect against Richter-scale levels of tummy rumbles. The Bento Box ($7.95 for chicken or tofu, $8.75 for beef, $8.95 for shrimp) lets diners load up on piquant pleasures such as the fire-grilled teriyaki beef or zesty red- curry shrimp over mixed accouterments of white rice, noodles, ginger salad, and other side dishes. Pamper your belly by draping any of the entrées upon a bowl of just noodles ($7.50 for chicken or tofu, $8.25 for beef, $8.50 for shrimp) or rice ($7.25 for chicken or tofu, $7.95 for beef, $8.25 for shrimp). Mouths water for the water-bound treats found in Bento's fresh sushi, which you can buy by the box ($8.95) complete with your choice of two rolls and a California roll, for a total of twelve rolls.
American craft beers, particularly from Florida breweries, fill the 51 drafts in Eternal Tap's rustic bar, which also stocks more than 100 bottled beers, an extensive bourbon selection, and fixings for mixed drinks and beer cocktails. These libations complement the kitchen's hand-tossed 10- and 16-inch pizzas, upon which chefs can sprinkle a choice of toppings—banana peppers, sliced sausage, and black olives among them—before firing pies in a brick oven. Along with pizzas, the culinary team specializes in other homemade delicacies, including hummus, soups, bread sticks, and pretzels flavored with cinnamon sugar or salt and parmesan.
The latest sports games flicker across Eternal Tap's more than 20 televisions. On Wednesday, jazz and blues musicians score meals with soulful solos, and during Tuesday and Thursday happy hours, local pianists entertain guests by tickling the ivories, rather than tickling diners until they sing an entire Billy Joel song.
