Coming from New Orleans we had fair given up the search to find restaurants in the New Smyrna Beach - Daytona Beach area that served food to our admittedly hothouse flowers picky standards. At home we eat a moderate omnivore organic diet and way too often meals out that less absurdly delicate constitutions than ours have no trouble eating make us frankly physically ill. We have recently found three places in the New Smyrna Beach area, all opened within the last year, we think. Shiki, a Japanese restaurant on beachside, which has another restaurant in Winter Park we have eaten at half a dozen times. I've never had a bad meal but Pam, my wife, has got sick, to her dismay, the last two times. Maybe she shouldn't eat sushi but she had no problems before. I'd still recommend it. Romesco's on Flagler downtown in New Smyrna Beach has superior Italian and other sandwiches for lunch, fabulous wines, excellent coffee and seems so out of place in New Smyrna Beach that I have to rub my eyes every time I go. Apparently they also have great dinners but I haven't tried that yet. Finally the night before last we ate at Dolce Vita on Highway 1 across the road from Beacon Theater. 6 months in business this is a flat out great Italian restaurant. I ate the Saltimbucco which was very fine and Pam had a delicious Pasta with Puttanesca sauce. Service at all three restaurants is professional, the wait staff friendly, the food clean, clear, and of the highest quality. All are moderately priced, lunches running $30, dinners $60 for two with wine and tip. Daytona and Deland we still don't know but NSB has at least 3 places I haven't seen mentioned on these boards.
