Hot Dish



Naples’ KC American Bistro Chef Keith Casey offers American regional favorites and new dishes with creative, savory touches. The intimate dining spot is perfect for dinner and a movie—it’s walking distance from the Pavilion Cinema 10. I recommend the sautéed Cape Cod diver scallops with shellfish nage, hazelnut-encrusted salmon, dayboat flounder with blood orange vinaigrette and the Kurobuta pork with sour cherry pan gravy. 885 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples, 566-2371, www.kcbistronaples.com.

Fort Myers’ Courtyard Café is my spot for relaxing with friends or Wi-Fi. The former site of Blackhawk Café, this warm, inviting place has delicious smoothies, coffees, café Cubano, cappuccinos and unique bites such as croque monsieur or crepe salmon—most less than $6. My favorites are the ever-changing gelato flavors. Try triple-chocolate, strawberry cheesecake and Bananas Foster. Relax with tea, beer or wine; there’s never a rush for your seat. 13499 S. Cleveland Ave., Suite 137, Fort Myers, 433-7770.

The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is a top spot for Sunday brunch. Available in season, the expansive buffet is served overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Pianist Gordon Banks’ jazz-infused style is a bonus. The offerings are generous with carved prime rib, carved ham, turkey or pork loin, chicken, seafood and pasta dishes, salad bar and desserts. $32 per adult, $16 for kids ages six to 12, and free for children five and younger. 851 Gulf Shore Blvd. N., Naples. Reservations at 435-4348, www.naplesbeachhotel.com
