Florida Only Seafood Dinner at The French


January 30, 2020 to January 30, 2020
07:30 AM untill 10:00 PM


Owner/chef Vincenzo Betulia of the award-winning The French Restaurant on 5th Avenue South in Naples, a devoted advocate for sustainable seafood, is also dedicated to educating the public on the effects of the red tide organism and eating Florida seafood. Today, he unveiled a sumptuous four-course, Florida-seafood-only menu he crafted that will be served Thursday, January 30, 2020 at his restaurant during a special fundraising dinner with guest speaker Dr. Leanne Flewelling from the HAB (Harmful Algal Bloom) Task Force. “We have a commitment to water quality and our environment,” says Betulia, adding Florida crabs, shrimp, scallops and lobsters, are not affected by the red tide organism and are fine to eat. He cites recent reports from the FWC, that the red tide bloom extends 20 to 30 miles offshore, and most commercial gulf species, including snapper and grouper, are caught 80 to 100 miles out from the shore, meaning they are not at all impacted by the red tide.
