Not Just the Usual Suspects for Dinner…

Category : Dining

There are just so many great Bonita Springs restaurants, I can’t imagine the necessity to drive all the way to Naples any more. Making the assumption the reader has experienced the convenience and variety of the fabulous dining options at The Coconut Point Mall, I would like to remind you that one of the best views available in southwest Florida sits right on the point of our very own neighborhood. If you feel like casual dining, the 3rd floor at The Bay Club often comes with the compliments of Colony favorite, Bill Jollie, singing all our favorite tunes from the last four decades. On the other hand, if it’s date night, consider the second floor at The Bay Club, where Chef Andy is always serving up a host of fantastic fish or beef and pasta entrees. Enjoy the sunset!

Ristorante Farfalla has been a consistent award-winning performer for over a decade and is located in the Publix strip mall cornering Corckscrew and US41 in Estero . Open for dinner 7 nights a week. I suggest you make a reservation; 239-495-9912 I’ve enjoyed Farfalla for years.

Elegant but not pretentious, white linen table cloths and candle light, Ristorante Farfalla’s  intimate restaurant serves a few so that both wait staff and chef Michael can pay significant attention to each patron, serving fresh, delicately seasoned handmade Italian creations. Every dining experience has been an absolute pleasure. Some of my favorites from their menu include: risotto dishes, the Antipasto Farfalla, and the filet Tagliata. When my father comes to visit, he considers it a highlight of his trip to order Farfalla’s Linguine Ai Frutti Di Mare.

The best steak I have had in Bonita Springs is at Chops. Located across US41 from Pelican Landing north gate, this is a hip, contemporary restaurant with wonderful beef cuts from which to choose. I love the petite filet and start with their Chops Big Bowl salad. While each plated presentation is a work of art, the cuisine always agrees with my classic “meat and potatoes” desires. Comfortable and consistent, I love Chops for a steak. In season, it’s a real good idea to make a reservation. 239-261-3962
