UofFL/Gainesville area

Hi all,

I'll be in Gainseville and U of FL in two weeks! (go Gators, lol). Any suggestions for nice restaurants in the city -- any and all options, cheap, expensive, any cuisine, breakfast, lunch, dinner, doesn't matter or if Gainseville or central/northern FL specializes in a specific cuisine I wouldn't mind focusing on that too!

I'm completely unfamiliar with the area and northern Florida in general -- thanks for any suggestions. I'll have a rental car so I can travel anywhere.

Also, is it possible or worth doing a Saturday day trip to Georgia? Any destination worthy places or not worth the drive? I know it's the wrong board but I'm looking for a Gainseviller's perspective on day trips that are interesting with good food. I won't ask about Orlando, Miami, etc. because I've already had past visits.

Thanks so much!
