Hot Dish: October 2012

With wide-open glass doors, Aqua brings the action of Fifth Avenue South right to your table, making it the perfect place for casual Mediterranean dining and great people watching. My favorites include seared pork belly, roasted beet salad, pan-braised corvina and miso-glazed Chilean sea bass. Top it off with homemade sorbet or tableside bananas Foster and enjoy a stroll down the Avenue.

862 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, 213-1111, aquafifth.com

Ballyorney Irish Pub in Fort Myers has been energized with the addition of Executive Chef Shannon Yates and his creative dishes. Shepherd’s pie and Guinness meet roasted beet and quinoa salad, tuna sashimi and tartare. Fish and chips greet skirt steak with yucca and chimichurri sauce. Savor a bit of tradition with a dash of contemporary and just make sure to save room for Yates' cayenne pepper crème brûlée.

Dine among palm trees and hibiscus by the Naples Bay at EJ’s Bayfront Café. Chef/owner Eric J Becker, a Le Cordon Bleu graduate, serves wallet-friendly breakfast delights including a lump crab, shrimp and asparagus omelet; Southwest skillet with blackened chicken and jalapeños; and a big breakfast burrito. Lunch brings on a Reuben, jambalaya pasta and paninis. Drinks range from smoothies to champagne. Relax on the pet-friendly patio and watch the boats and people go by.
