Florida Fresh Menu

Guests are raving about the Watermelon Salad. The fresh ingredients are impressive and we appreciate the hearty portion!

We recommend pairing The Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with the Tomato Wine! The dish includes three big, spicy shrimp with lots of sausage and sauce.

For an awesome springtime dessert, choose the Angel Food Cake. While the compote wasn’t as sweet as we expected, the whipped cream makes up for it!

It’s a bit zippy (with the addition of chiles) making the Tomato Wine quite unique. If you like tomatoes, give it a try. It contains 11% alcohol!
