I will stay in the Clearwater/Dunedin area for the third time in two years, so I read all the messages - pertaining to this area - that were posted on this useful board.
Like many of you, I have been to Frenchy's and I agree, it is a must! Among the restaurants I tried, other than Frenchy's, I really liked the Hogfish (in my opinion, the menu is inventive and the food shooter is a great idea and a fun way to sample the food) and Cafe Alfresco (Dunedin), but I am surprised that nobody mentionned my favorite restaurant: Guppy's (Bellair or Indian Rock).
Having read your messages, I look forward to try Keegan's Seafood Grill, Lenny's, Bobby's Bistro and Kelly's.
In addition to Guppy's, the followings are on my Finds List: Iris's peanut pie(Dunedin), Serious Cookie Company and Tarpon Springs (I forgot the name of the place).
Would any of you kindly share their gourmet finds with me? I will be staying in a condo, so I will be able to cook: is the Wednesday market in Clearwater worth the visit? Is there a fine grocery store in Clearwater (the only grocery store I know is Publix)? Other than the Grouper sandwich, what are the local specialities? I had the best grouper sandwich in Bellair, in a little restaurant with a nice patio located just beside a Thai restaurant. I forgot the name of the place but I can tell you this much about it: great Greek salad and great happy hour specials. It is located on the right side of the road when you leave Clearwater and you go towards St-Pete, it has a yellow sign, it is located between the Blues Brothers Diner and Guppy's. Anybody know that restaurant? By the way, did any of you ever eat at the Blues Brothers diner?
Looking forward to be back in Clearwater Beach and discover new places... I am open to any suggestions.
