Cape Coral is a lovely little town in Florida just outside of Fort Myers. The Westin Cape Coral at Marina Village is an equally lovely property with more suites than rooms, each outfitted with a full-sized, fully equipped kitchen, as well as living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

The property has a spa, salon, and gym. But it also has some more unique offerings, including a marina, a water taxi to take you to the beach, sunset and dolphin watching tours, and a New Balance Fitness Gear loan program. They are pet-friendly and take part in a number of “green” initiatives in the rooms, public areas, and back of the house.

As for food, the property offers two dining options: Marker 92 Waterfront Bar & Bistro and the Nauti Mermaid Dockside Bar & Grill. The Nauti Mermaid serves the lunch portion of Marker 92’s offerings; its menu includes the usual seafood suspects, like grouper, mahi mahi, and shrimp.

I opted for the cherry bourbon glazed pork ribs with pickled watermelon, and the shrimp stir-fry with pan flashed shrimp, soy glazed tofu, edamame, and market vegetables over brown rice. The ribs were so delicious that I found myself ordering a second round after I finished off the first. The stir-fry was satisfying as well — it’s tough to go wrong with shrimp when you’re spending time on the Gulf Coast.

But the real fun at Marker 92 isn’t on the menu, it’s off.

If you’re in the know, you can order from the secret, unwritten poutine menu with variations on the popular French-Canadian dish. The menu was created to cater to an impressive number of Canadian travelers who visit the property each year. It doesn’t hurt that general manager Eric Ashton hails from Canada, either. After nagging executive chef Drew Tait to make the dish for him, the resort decided to offer it to any guest who knows to order it.

They offer three varieties; ask for poutine and you’ll get the classic recipe of crispy French fries topped with shredded mozzarella cheese and hot brown gravy. Order the Floridian poutine and you’re served crispy French fries covered with fried grouper bites, shredded mozzarella cheese, hot brown gravy, and drizzles of aioli. If you opt for the loaded poutine, you’ll find yourself reveling in crispy French fries topped with bacon, shredded mozzarella cheese, hot brown gravy, scallions, and sour cream.

I ordered number three and was one happy customer. The fries were perfectly crisped and the gravy was seasoned just right. Best of all, there was the perfect amount of each ingredient. Too much of any one thing and you end up with dry poutine, soggy poutine, or drowning poutine, but the loaded poutine was heavenly. Marker 92 may not have invented poutine, but they have definitely invented some attention-worthy renditions stateside.

Since I was dining solo I decided to sit at the bar. I was immediately greeted by Amanda, who told me that she would be looking after me, but if I couldn't find her ANYONE behind the bar could help me out!! Imagine! Real teamwork at a bar. And it worked beautifully. Anything I wanted: another glass of wine, a beer or an extra condiment for my burger all I had to do was ask! Amanda stopped by several times while I was there to make sure I had everything I wanted. Such gracious, generous service is a wonderful experience!!

I was able to construct my own burger (no bun, no fries) but with cheese, some greens, guacamole etc. The burger was cooked to my specifications and it was delicious. I could not finish all that was on my platter, so a carry away box appeared immediately.

The service was so warm and friendly that I stayed for another glass of wine to just continue to take in the atmosphere. There were families, couples and, yes, a few singles. It was a perfect place to chill after a long day at a business workshop. I shared my 'discovery' with all of my colleagues!! Great food, great service, a warm, friendly but hip atmosphere -- this is really a wonderful, inclusive place. Thank you all so very much for a really great evening!!

Thank you for such a wonderful review! We built our business on good service and teamwork and I am so happy to hear my staff is executing that vision. We hope to see you again soon. Cheers!

‘These are our schools, yours and mine’

Although students today are faced with rigorous expectations to prepare them for a competitive workforce, School District Superintendent Dr. Nancy Graham told those in attendance at the State of Our Schools – Partners in Education breakfast Friday morning that students are rising to the challenge with great success.

With this year’s State of Our Schools theme of “Star Wars” The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools President and CEO Marshall Bower dressed as Yoda and Graham dressed as Princess Leia.

Superintendent Nancy Graham and The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools President and CEO Marshall Bower.

“The summation of what I know . . . Star Wars goes like this – there are good guys and one really bad guy dressed in black. So, I had to ask myself how in the world do I relate all that to education,” she said. “Yoda has very few words to say. And when he says them, they are received as profound and lasting.”

Graham’s speech was broken down into seven lessons shared through Yoda.

Her first lesson, “you must unlearn what you have learned,” touched upon the difficult tasks with which educators are faced. Graham said most people have gone to school and many want to serve as local experts in running a school.

“Though it is comfortable for us to relate current life to our own experiences, it would be really helpful in the case of public education for individuals to unlearn or at least suspend personal experiences and see education for what it is today,” she said. “Heavily legislative, often politicized and insufficiently funded.”

Public education has changed in terms of requirements for high school graduation. Graham said years ago students completed their high school math requirements after finishing algebra one.

“You all know those same folks never had to pass a standardized test or end of course exam in math, history or science,” she said. “It’s likely in most cases those same people are reaping the benefits of a well-lived professional life. But today, none of those same people would be able to earn a high school diploma based on the current requirements facing our freshman class, the class of 2018.”

This year’s senior class had to earn at least a half credit of online courses to receive a high school diploma.

When adding rigorous, challenging and prescriptive academic expectations to life experiences of students that are already faced without a stable family unit, homelessness, poverty, English as a second language, neighborhood violence, mental illness and physical or emotional abuse the chance to become a kid may never come, she said.

Through all of those difficulties, Graham said there is a positive note. In 2014, Lee County achieved the highest reading learning gains in its history performed above the state average in points earned for the state grading system improved the district grade and this year’s high school graduates earned a combined $50 million in scholarships.

Her second lesson was titled “difficult to see, always in motion is the future, which focused on predicting what students might need to be prepared beyond their kindergarten through 12th grade education.

“As today’s educators, we are charged with preparing our students for the workforce. A workforce full of jobs yet to be defined,” Graham said. “This is the new way of work . . . preparing the future for the unknown. This is why we must focus on teaching our students how to think and problem solve. To look at math and science and literature from angles and many lenses.”

The future for the students is why the district focuses on STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – as well as STEAM, because Lee County also includes the arts in its schools. Comprehensive high schools, which allow students to earn diplomas and industry certifications, are also offered to prepare students for the workforce.

Graham said the district also invests in such student leadership programs as JROTC, where Lee County ranks as the second largest in the country.

Another lesson, “truly wonderful the mind of a child” spoke to the district’s responsibility of acknowledging the minds they reach through relationships and programs to nurture students.

“You think Yoda stops teaching just because a student does not want to hear – a teacher Yoda Is” shared information about the teachers of Lee County.

Graham said next year the school district will employ just under 6,000 teachers, 2,000 of whom have a master’s degree or higher. She said it is no easy task to hire and retain the best talent because the School District of Lee County is the biggest employer from Tampa to Miami.

“We are back to a growth pattern of an additional 1,500 to 2,000 students a year,” Graham said. “We are projected to be in that mode for the next 10 years.”

The lesson also shared information about the newest career opportunities for teachers. A teacher leader spends part of their day teaching and the other half coaching other teachers, which Graham said has been successful.

Grants through the National Education Association have also helped in closing the learning gap in Lee County. What started as assistance for 10 schools, will have reached 30 schools in 2016 with the grant.

“When 900 years old you reach, look as good as you will not,” highlighted the capital budget funds decrease. Graham said the combination of lower property taxes, reduced impact fees and reduced funding from the state in the past five years resulted in $656 million loss to the district’s capital budget.

“As a district and a community, we can no longer pretend the losses have no impact as we face a growing number of students,” she said. “These are our schools, yours and mine. Our schools need to be maintained while new schools will ultimately have to be built to house the children that we know are coming.”

Another lesson titled “Try no. Do or do not. There is no try,” shared the importance of partnerships and their involvement.

“All in means more than just writing a check . . . though we are grateful for your financial support. In this partnership all in is about being an advocate of our schools, correcting misperceptions when you hear them or sharing the positives when others may want to be negative,” Graham said. “All in means we make promises to one another and we keep them.”

Some of those promises include a balance budget without using reserved funds measurable three year strategic plan nationally credited school district increase learning gains among all groups of students at least one school counselor at every school 325 fewer required tests forward movement with technology including the start of one-on-one devices for students C to a B district and on the way to becoming an A district, as well as continuing to work with the community to keep its vision.

She closed her speech by asking the audience to “pass on always what you have learned.”

“The more who know more the better and stronger the partnership becomes among us,” Graham said. “Our doors are open to you as we move forward and I encourage you to visit our schools. I will personally take you.

Gear Up Florida cyclists

Special Populations welcomes

Published in Cape Coral Daily Breeze May 12, 2015 issue

Almost 100 members of Special Populations, cheering and holding handmade signs, welcomed 21 bicyclists Monday afternoon at the Sun Splash Family Waterpark pavilion.

Nina Strickland organized the event for the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, which is part of the cycling group Gear Up Florida, which is organized by The Ability Experience. The group of cyclists raises awareness and funds for people with disabilities.

“I have a special needs daughter,” she said of her daughter Alexandra Blythe.

Strickland said her daughter loves going to Special Populations because of her friends who also attend the program. She said her daughter has the opportunity to participate in different activities that provide life skills.

“This is her life,” she said. “She can’t wait to come here.”

Last year the Pi Kappa Phi members stopped at Special Populations for the first time during their Gear Up Florida cycling trek. The bike ride raised funds for Special Population, which allowed the organization to purchase trikes.

Sara Sansone, Special Populations supervisor, said she likes the ride’s mission statement of drawing awareness to disabilities.

“They will be ambassadors,” she said of the cyclists.

Sansone said they will have the opportunity to touch others by sharing the experiences they had Monday, as well as learn more about people with disabilities.

Strickland said her son, who is a Pi Kappa Phi member, is the reason her family became involved in organizing the stop in Cape Coral.

“My son is always involved in special needs,” she said.

Strickland’s son, Stephen Blythe, a graduate of Ida Baker High School, began Baker Buddies while attending school to offer such events as bowling and ice cream socials to engage interaction with special needs students.

“It has exploded since then,” he said of the club.

After graduating high school, he enrolled at the University of Tennessee and joined the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity his freshman year. In August 2011, Blythe decided to become more involved by participating in Journey of Hope, a bike ride that departed from San Francisco June 9, 2011, and ended in Washington D.C. Aug. 10, 2011. He said the trip included 60 cycling days with an average of 80 to 85 miles a day.

Each cyclist had to raise a minimum of $5,500. Blythe raised $9,100 for the ride. He said the great thing about the ride is when they stopped for “Friendship Visits” a grant was given that day with the money they raised.

“You do see it’s being put to good use,” he said.

Blythe said the life changing experience was the perfect college experience. The men he rode with from San Francisco to Washington D.C. became his close friends. The most difficult part of the experience was saying goodbye to friends after spending 70 straight days with them.

Shey Siegert, now a junior in college left Idaho to attend college in Alabama. He became involved in the Pi Kappa Phi two years ago because he wanted to get involved in a fraternity that touched upon academics, social and philanthropy. Siegert said the fraternity spoke to him because he had a friend in high school that had a brother with Down Syndrome.

“He was always happy to see me,” Siegert said of the experience that encouraged him to continue to hang out with others with disabilities.

This year, 21 cyclists from 10 to 15 different states and eight crew members are participating in the Gear Up Florida ride. Siegert said some of the cyclists traveled from California, Iowa, Ohio, Arizona, Alabama and Florida.

Those who participated in Gear Up Florida had to raise a minimum of $2,500, which enabled the group to provide a grant of more than $50,000 to Special Populations before leaving Monday afternoon.

Siegert said he raised $2,600 by reaching out to alumni, starting an email campaign, making phone calls and starting a Facebook page. He said everyone who made a donation through Facebook will receive a journal that includes daily photographs and excerpts.

The ride began Sunday, May 10 with 95 miles from Miami to Clewiston.

The cyclists arrived at Special Populations around 11:30 a.m. Monday for a “Friendship Visit.” After being greeted, the cyclists gathered under the pavilion to hear Cape Coral City Councilmember Rick Williams read a proclamation declaring Monday, May 11 as “Gear Up Florida Day.” The cyclists then handed out slices of pizza to the members of Special Populations before sitting down and joining them for conversations.

“I have never been to a Friendship Visit,” Siegert said. “It’s pretty amazing . . . having a great conversation with everyone.”

Sansone said since the cyclists stopped during the time they offer programs, the fraternity members had the opportunity to dance, take a walk and play games with those who attend Special Populations.

“For our group, they get to meet college students,” she said of the learning and growth experience.

After leaving Special Populations, the cyclist traveled to Lee County Arc in Fort Myers. Strickland was having the team over for dinner Monday night before they headed to Sarasota Tuesday morning. The ride will conclude Saturday, May 23 in Tallahassee after visiting 13 cities, for a total of 866 miles.

Nick Julian, who is the logistics coordinator for the ride, said he makes sure the roads they travel are safe and plans events during the ride.

“To be able to engage this way shows how great Florida is,” he said of the Monday event.

Vans travel with the cyclist to ensure they are safe and have what they need throughout the ride. Siegert said every 10 miles the vans will park and provide the cyclist with water and food while they are still riding. He said about every 10 miles he will eat a Cliff bar and about every 20 miles will hydrate with water.

In addition to the vans, Siegert said the cyclists also look out for each other during the ride with open communication. He said if one of them sees a piece of medal, they yell out debris and left or right.

Nestled between Orlando and Tampa, you’ll find an affordable place to live in Florida—Lakeland. This city is known for having over 38 local lakes and being a major transportation hub due to its central location along I-4. In fact, it’s just around an hour to commute to Tampa or Orlando from Lakeland, so job opportunities and fun activities in bigger cities aren’t hard to reach. Lakeland is also home to Florida Southern College, which offers excellent nursing, education, and business programs, as well as top-rated Division II athletic programs.

Things to Do in Lakeland

Walk through exhibits of ancient African sculptures and modern Impressionist paintings at the Polk Museum of Art. Shop for antique radios, vinyl records, furniture, and more at Lloyds of Lakeland in Historic Downtown Lakeland. See a play at the Lake Mirror Theater or drift through thousands of roses in Hollis Garden at the Lake Mirror Complex. Go boating or enjoy a picnic at Lake Parker Park. Watch the Detroit Tigers run around the bases during spring training at Joker Marchant Stadium. Get tickets to Sun ‘N Fun, an international expo with hot air balloons, air shows, inflatable obstacle courses, tea parties, and more. Try New Orleans-inspired dishes like Louisiana Fondeaux, Crawfish Etouffee, or Cajun Seared Ahi at Harry’s Seafood Bar and Grille. Wash down some Oyster Nachos with a Hurricane cocktail at Fish City Grill. Fill up on Lamb Ragout Fried Pork Ribs at Puerto Rican restaurant Brasa Latina. Or order a delicious latte and avocado toast for breakfast on-the-go at Black and Brew.

Jonesez BBQ

Multiple trucks serving Hendry, Lee and Collier counties

There's no mistaking a Jonesez BBQ rib. It's the chew of the bark, the pink of the smoke ring, the way meat clings to bone just so.

And, at the Jonesez trucks, ribs are just the barbecue beginning.

There’s pulled pork laced with that same crusty bark. There’s juicy smoked chicken. And there are sides. Oh sweet Jonesez, are there sides. These are Mrs. Vickie Jones’s handiwork acts of love that take the form of gooey macaroni and cheese, buttery cornbread and proper collard greens speckled with ham hocks. Of serious potato salad and pork-infused beans. Of yellow rice and Southern-style green beans.

Jonesez BBQ has fans near and far, from the hordes of locals willing to line up in the Florida heat for this barbecue, to Food Network host and celebrity chef Tyler Florence who fell in love with Jonesez’ smoky offerings while shooting “The Great Food Truck Race” in spring 2019.

The Jones family — Vickie’s husband Andre and his brother Remus serve as pit masters — have created such an abundance of deliciousness, they’ve had to expand to meet demand. The one food truck they started with in 2009 has grown to three. They park their trucks at locations in and around LaBelle, Fort Myers and Naples — wherever they see an unmistakable barbecue need.

Heavenly Biscuit

The key to Heavenly Biscuit is getting there early — and bringing cash. Wait too long and the line will wind out the front door and down the creaky wood steps of this colorful cottage's porch. It's a wonderfully horrible line, where biscuits loaded with fried chicken meander past, followed by egg biscuits and sausage biscuits and sticky cinnamon rolls pooled with frosty glaze. By the time you get to the counter you'll need all of it. There's an ATM if you need more cash. And the beach across the street is the perfect place for a biscuit-induced nap.

Event Details

Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) will host its annual fundraiser through an innovative art exhibit displayed at its headquarters – and accessible online – from May 14-28, 2021.

The exhibit will comprise artwork created by JFCS clients, who have worked with local artists to express their stories that range from battling hunger and homelessness to reunifying with their children after mental health struggles.

Although the gallery will be physically displayed at in the Chartrand Family Tolerance Center at JFCS headquarters, the community is invited to view the exhibit through dynamic videos that will be unveiled on the agency’s website.

The interactive webpage pairs each art piece with a video of the individual who inspired its creation, providing a more immersive experience for visitors.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the exhibit will be made available for public viewing at a later date. Those interested in viewing the virtual gallery and supporting the nonprofit can visit for more information.

Established in 1917, Jewish Family & Community Services has been operating in the Jacksonville community for more than 100 years. Guided by Jewish values, the local nonprofit has been committed to the mission of “helping people help themselves” – no matter their faith or background. JFCS provides a wide range of services, in six key program areas: adoption, foster care, emergency financial assistance, mental health counseling, dropout prevention and senior support. They also provide Jewish life services, which includes assisting Holocaust survivors. For more information, visit

Discover New Restaurants Around Town

What’s new, you ask? Well, the beaches, golf courses and weather remain relatively constant, but one thing you can count on to change is the region’s restaurants. The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel is blessed with a multitude and they inevitably change with the tides.

Here’s a roundup of some of the establishments that have opened in the past year (updated Dec. 2019).

Bonita Springs

Foxboro Sports Tavern. A casual sports bar known for its beer, cocktails, wings and enthusiasm for all things New England.

Jimmy P’s Charred North. The family that began with a butcher shop in Naples then opened a steakhouse next door now have a second one in Bonita Springs. Lunches are casual, with burgers and chops, but dinner becomes a more involved affair with Japanese and American Wagyu steaks, Colorado lamb chops, giant sea scallops with sweet corn-avocado relish and sides such as truffled wild mushrooms and Boursin creamed spinach. This is a place in which the atmosphere is casual but the food is seriously good.

Lapa’s Bistro. If you’ve not had Costa Rican food, this is the place to try. The food is simple and rustic, with choices such as chifrijo (a mix of fried pork and beans eaten with tortilla chips), arroz cantones (a dish resembling fried rice), empanadas and comforting soups.

Shaking Crab. The concept is simple: choose your protein - crabs, shrimp, clams, crawfish, whatever – seasoning and degree of heat and it’s shaken up in a bag. Add some sides and dinner is served.

Buen Provecho. Chef/owner Elmer Passapera creates classic Puerto Rican fare, including alcapurrias, empanadas, sandwiches and salads, mofongo and meat and seafood dishes.

Dona Arepa & Don Ceviche. For a taste of Venezuelan cuisine, this newcomer offers well-made arepas (hand-held cakes made from cornmeal stuffed with meat, cheese or vegetables), cachapas (something like a crepe with fillings), soups, steak, grilled fish and other authentic fare.

Duval’s. As the name implies, there’s a Key West theme here. The menu features crab cakes and conch fritters, surf and turf, baby back ribs and grouper.

Enter the Dragon. This quirky little spot offers a sushi bar plus tacos, fried chicken and burgers along with old Bruce Lee movies showing non-stop.

J&P Asian Fusion. This stylish restaurant specializes in sushi and you’ll find some unusual items such as scallop aburi, grilled squid, sashimi pizza and tuna dumplings.

Keg & Cow. As if the name isn’t clear enough, this place specializes in brews and burgers but also offers things like a pulled-pork sandwich, fried cheddar cheese and a host of beers.

Masala Mantra. At last, an Indian restaurant in the Cape. It took over the spot occupied by Tasty Cultures and serves a wealth of classic Indian fare, including dishes cooked in the clay tandoori oven, curries and lots of vegetarian options.

PanOlio. The name may sound Italian but the menu is American – with a Mediterranean flair. There are items geared to vegetarians and those on gluten-free diets as well as favorites such as lasagna, chicken tortilla soup, house-made hummus, salads, seafood and house-smoked beef brisket.

Redfish Point Garden Bar & Grill. The former Brew Babies/La Corte location is now a casual dining restaurant serving Florida-style fare such as shared plates with smoked fish or meat, buffalo shrimp, redfish with roasted red pepper cream and Duroc pork shank.

Estero/San Carlos Park

CaliBurger/Marlin’s Brewhouse. This high-tech burger joint features Flippy ™, a robot that flips your burgers, as well as a kiosk that takes orders and payments and uses facial recognition to speed the process. You also can pick up a brew at Marlin’s, which shares the same space.

Go Greek/Molon Labe. If you’ve looked for Molon Labe in the Sam’s Plaza in Fort Myers and found it is gone, head over to Miromar Outlets in Estero and you’ll find Go Greek, the new version by the same owners. The food is the same, too, featuring Greek classics served with a smile.

KC American Bistro. Talented chef/owner Keith Casey has a loyal following at his Naples bistro. Now he has a more northerly location as well featuring the same creative dishes, such as Medjool dates stuffed with gorgonzola then wrapped in prosciutto and pumpkin-seed-crusted salmon with apple-fennel slaw. The dining room is spacious and modern, with servers who understand fine dining.

Llama’s House. This simple but neat little restaurant at Miromar Outlets offers Peruvian fare – think five variations on ceviche, tostones bruschetta, tacu tacu and churrasco, among others. Finish the meal with a velvety flan.

Naples Coastal Kitchen. An extensive menu ensures something for everyone, from tacos and seafood baskets to surf and turf, Canadian walleye and shrimp and grits.

Tacos Y Ceviches. From the folks who brought us El Gaucho Inca comes this informal and inexpensive little spot offering ceviche, tacos, burritos, tortas and other casual but well-executed fare. Try a passion fruit or lucama milkshake, too.

American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. Grilled cheese sandwich devotees will find the object of their affection elevated to an art form here with sandwiches that include lavender-basil pesto, chipotle butter and Laura Chenel chevre. Add to the sandwich a salad, deep-fried Brussels sprouts or bamboo sesame kale salad.

Dante’s Coal Fired Pizza. The chicken wings alone are worth the trip – marinated and roasted in a coal oven. Choose from pastas, burgers or thin-crust pizza with a wide assortment of toppings and heartier fare such as cioppino and osso buco.

Ember Korean Steakhouse. This out-of-the-ordinary restaurant offers exceptional sushi, traditional Korean barbecue and intriguing items such as poutine with Korean braised short ribs, tacos and a savory Korean pancake. Order the Korean barbecue and select the meats you’d like then cook them on your own grill and eat them with all the little side dishes that come with them.

Forever Fiore. For those who enjoy tea and the tea sandwiches and pastries served in traditional tea service, this little hidden gem now occupies the space that used to hold an Austrian/German restaurant. It’s been handsomely transformed into an elegant tea house.

House of Pasta. In the newly remodeled Rene’s, Northern Italian cuisine is the star, with some less-often seen dishes such as cottolette (resembling a schnitzel), sautéed chicken livers, risotto alla pescatore and limoncello cheesecake.

Keke’s Breakfast Café. For a hearty breakfast or lunch, Keke’s serves up waffles, pancakes, omelets, burgers, sandwiches and wraps. It’s bright and clean, with a cheerful staff and kid-friendly attitude.

Liberty. The former Mad Fresh how been reimagined by chef/owner Bob Boye, formerly of Cru. The tersely worded menu belies the lush nature of the dishes found here. With just 3 dozen seats, the dining room is cozy. The focus here is on small plates and well-selected wines. Menu items change weekly to take advantage of what’s fresh and suits the chef’s fancy.

Maks Asian Kitchen & Sushi. Brothers Billy and Kevin Mak, the sushi chefs who made Blu Sushi a local institution, have taken an old Beef O’Brady’s and transformed it into a chic spot in which to enjoy their excellent sushi, sashimi, specialty rolls and hot entrees that include Thai noodles and curries plus some Chinese favorites.

Poke Bowl Café. Poke (po-KAY) is all the rage, a Hawaiian-style dish that includes rice or noodles, veggies, a choice of proteins, garnishes and dressings. This spot also offers items such as gyoza (dumplings), miso soup, octopus puffs and kani salad.

The Saucy Meatball. The Basiles have been serving Italian fare in Fort Myers for decades. This is their newest spot, which offers takeout and dine in options in Gateway. Appetizers, soups, salads, pizzas, pasta and Italian entrees are all available.

Skinny Dogz. From the creators of Fat Katz comes Skinny Dogz, with an equally inventive and tasty menu. Choose from an array of dishes such as chicken and waffles, eggs benedict, burgers and salads. There are also house-smoked meats and house-made bacon jam and espresso hollandaise. And don’t forget the maple-glazed, bacon-topped donuts paired with pork belly – that’s an appetizer.

Tino’s Southwest Kitchen. This is a Southwestern restaurant, not to be confused with Tex-Mex. Options include chorizo mushroom quesadilla, quinoa kale salad, grilled snapper tacos and lots of dishes that feature corn, beans and chilies.

10 Twenty Five. The spot that has previously housed memorable restaurants such as Varians and Morgan House is now the second location of this pub-style spot. (The first is in Cape Coral.) It offers a wealth of comfort fare such as fried pork shanks with teriyaki-honey-citrus glaze, chicken pot pie, burgers, mac and cheese and apple fritters. There is more than one bar and you can dine inside or on the patio.

Fort Myers Beach

Rae’s on the Beach. The resort’s dinner dining destination offers a great view of the gulf as well as a menu that balances seafood, meat and vegetarians fare.

North Fort Myers

El Meson Latin Cuisine. Whether you’re hankering for Mexican, Cuban or Venezuelan food, there’s something on the menu for you. Tacos and fajitas, empanadas, chimichangas, pabellon, arepas and more are all served here at moderate prices. There’s also a full bar.

Paradise Pizza. What used to be a bake-your-own takeout spot is now a full restaurant serving pizza, calzones, strombolis, subs, pasta and parmigiana. Service is friendly and the dining room is cheery and bright.

Malia Island Fusion Cuisine. The former Blue Coyote Supper Club is now an “island fusion” restaurant with imaginative dishes such as Moroccan-spiced fried chicken, black garlic shrimp, bluefin tuna nachos and jerk octopus. The ambience has a Tommy Bahama feel with dark woods, woven lamp shades and banana-leaf wallpaper.

MudBugs Cajun Kitchen. The former Chip’s Sanibel Steakhouse is now a destination for New Orleans-style cuisine. The décor is whimsical, with stained-glass frogs and crawdads, which gives it a joyful ambience. Enjoy a mojito or Sazerac then dive into a dish of gumbo or corn-crab bisque, kabobs of Brussels sprouts and pork belly, fried oyster po’boys, jambalaya or red beans and rice.
