Strolling through Naples it's not unusual to smell spicy
curried shrimp sizzling in a wok, prime rib grilling over hickory logs,
and mouthwatering New York-style pizza criping in an oven. Our city
sets an international table. Cuisines of France, Japan, Portugal, Spain,
Germany, Mexico, India, Vietnam, the West Indies, Central Europe, England,
Ireland, northern and southern Italy and most of the provinces of China
are deliciously represented here, as well as American fare.
On variety alone, Naples dining competes with cities many
times its size. And when it comes to culinary resources, there are few
places in or outside Florida that can compete. Being on the Gulf coast,
Naples has an active commercial fishing industry that keeps local resaurants
stocked daily with fresh fish, crab, shrimp, scallops, and lobster.
With a subtropical climate and farms only a few miles east, the Southwestern
Florida community has fresh fruits and vegetables year round. Earthy
pleasures such juicy red tomatoes, luscious watermelon, succulent oranges
and other produce sweeten many a dish.
lovers will find that Florida's ubiquitous grouper is a wonderfully
versatile fish that's tasty with virtually any ingredients and all modes
of preparation. On it's own, grouper needs only lemon and a little butter
to bring out its sweet, mild flavor. But that doesn't keep area chefs
from devising imaginative new presentaion of this Florida fish.
During a season running from October to May, stone crabs
are a local delicacyin high demand. Inside beautifully sun-colored claws
and knuckles, the stone crab yields rich strands of meat, sweet with
or without butter.
beefeaters rarely havr to travel more than a block to find prime-grade
satisfaction. Ild-fashionedmeat and potatoes are the main event in an
assortmentof American, English and Irish steak-and-chop houses heavily
sprinkled all over town.
Many restaurants take advantage of the area's mild climate
by offering al fresco dining. Dine on a dock overlooking a rose-hued
sunset on the Gulf, or sip your morning coffee and read The New York
Times at a sidewalk bistro. Dining outdoors is part of the Naples experience!
