Best Bite: Gordon’s Quartet


Gordon’s Quartet ($48) is a bountiful gourmand’s delight, featuring wild boar sausage with cranberry chutney, ostrich fan fillet topped with grain mustard-shallot sauce, venison tenderloin accompanied by wild mushroom Madeira sauce and Chinese braised oxtail with exotic star anise-lemon grass essence. This lush creation by Gordon’s on the River’s chef, Andrew McLaughlin, pairs wonderfully with sommelier Ian Ponsford’s wines. Dine in style with attentive service, while overlooking the Gordon River in a private supper club setting, 475 North Road, Naples, 213-1441, ext. 214 gordonsontheriver.com.
