What’s Open: Restaurants Open after Hurricane Ian

As Southwest Florida slowly starts to rebuild, these local restaurants have reopened their doors.

BY October 1, 2022

There’s a long road ahead for our region to recover from the storm. Many restaurants in Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Cape Coral and beyond are still assessing damage from the storm and diligently working to get back online. But some places have reopened, including restaurants, and their teams stand ready to welcome you with open arms and hot meals. We know one of the best ways to support our community is by showing patronage to our small businesses—and few places support local restaurants better than Southwest Florida. Here are some local-favorite restaurants we know are open.  

We will update this post as we hear from other Collier, Lee and Charlotte restaurants open for service. Let us know of places you hear about by emailing [email protected] or commenting on our social media. You can also stay tuned to WINK-FM and WINK News for updates on recovery efforts, local restaurants and updates across the region.
