Eight of us flying in from California, Boston, NY for a long weekend. Would really appreciate any recommendations for places to go anywhere near Fort Myers Beach Area for a blowout dinner on a Saturday night in March.
Sanibel, Cape Coral, downtown Fort Myers... where would you go if you prioritized the following in order:
1. (Well) above average food. Seafood, Steak, Italian probably the best three options. Maybe Sushi. Hoping to avoid pub/fried food.
2. Atmosphere - I've been to a few places with great food in strip malls in the Fort Myers area (Cibo, Sasses). If there is a place like this with a good bar attached or nearby, that could be a big benefit.
3. Location - don't care where it is as long as we don't have to drive an hour (hoping to avoid having to drive to Naples... is there something that fits the bill in N. Naples?)
In NYC/Boston/SF, I think the clear winner would be an old school steakhouse or some sort of cool new place. In SW FL...? Any ideas welcome. I've read the board talking about if anything good is in Fort Myers... nothing jumped out as right for this dinner. Am I missing anything?
