Best New Restaurants Countdown: DeRomo's Gourmet Market & Restaurant

BY February 2, 2015


We continue with Lee County runner-up DeRomo's:


DeRomo’s Gourmet Market and Restaurant

26811 S. Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; 325-3583,

Nothing has been more buzzed about than the arrival of this eatery and accompanying market in the now-revived Promenade at Bonita Bay. The owners, originally from the corner of the Bronx famous for authentic Italian restaurants and specialty stores, invested heavily into turning a huge slice of commercial space into a glittering gourmet market stocked with artisan breads, made-in-house pastas, imported espressos and other delicacies. The adjoining restaurant, separated from the food hall, has an inviting feel from a chic mix of industrial-glam elements (think: metal shell light fixtures with dangling crystals). The end product is a match made in foodie heaven—what’s on the menu incorporates the best of what’s next door, such as straightforward pasta dishes like tortellini stuffed with veal and finished with generous slices of cremini mushrooms, salty pancetta and sweet baby peas in a creamy Parmigiano-Reggiano sauce.
