Ondine Restaurant, Edinburgh

Located just a few steps off the Royal Mile this seafood-er serves only the finest fresh local catch.  It’s elegant modern interior is as stylish as the food presentations.  The oysters are amazing served with a Wild Boar sausage on the side.  The daily lunch and prix-theater specials are a good value. All of the fish is cooked to perfection and served with attention to detail.  The Carmel Sundae for dessert should not be passed up!

Sea Salt, Naples, Florida

We stopped in for light lunch in Naples Florida today revisiting a favorite from last year. We are happy to report that the food is better than ever and all is going well at Sea Salt.

This visit we where lucky enough to have a long chat with the Chef/Owner Fabrizio Aielli. He was a most pleasant Italian gentlemen that was passionate about the quality of the ingredients he serves. He proudly explained how he is getting fresh ingredients flown in several times a week and some of his fish from Italy is fresher than that of some of the local fish served elsewhere.  Tomatoes are another passion of the Chef’s he loves to serve them with just a bit of fine olive oil and salt.

We are looking forward to returning shortly to have the fresh Gelato the chef promised us and to visit his new venue opening in the fall. We highly recommend that when in Naples Florida, you dine like your in Naples Italy at Sea Salt.

The Grand Central Oyster Bar, New York, NY

[flickrset id=”72157622768339821″ thumbnail=”square” overlay=”true” size=”medium”]

Located in Grand Central station this NYC classic has quite an eclectic mix of patrons.   There is a large variety of fresh oysters from around the country. We found the highly touted Panroasts to be disappointing however the oysters are sublime.   This is not an establishment for haute cuisine but rather for simply prepared fresh seafood.
They have an adequate wine list and plenty of beer to wash down some of the giant oysters.   This is certainly one of the best train station dining experiences, I’ve had.
