    I finally went to Basmati's 2 weeks ago- my dinner was amazing. I can't wait to go back. The restaurant is beautiful and peaceful , especially the porch overlooking Draper Lake.

    Not dinner, but lunch. We love the sandwiches at Wild Olives in Rosemary Beach. Big enough to share with a hungry husband. :lol: And the staff is really very professional and nice.

    Toss up between D&K and Cafe Tango, with Fire and Stinky's as close seconds.

    Oooh, some good ones. Cafe Tango and Basmati's are terrific, as is Fabrice. In summary, if you come to SoWal, you better be ready to eat more than one meal, out on the town.

    I cannot, cannot WAIT to get there!!!!!! Y'all are the best!

    One of the things I am going to LOVE about moving there is having the time to try every single restaurant, one by one....

    Cafe Tango for the intimate experience.
    Fish Out of Water for the ambience and view.
    Red Bar for the character.
    All of the above for the food.

    Love D & K's - definitely give it a nod over the Red Bar your next visit and see what you think.

    I think the more appropriate question would be what to avoid which IMHO is nothing. Except maybe the "food" at Tom Thumb in Seagrove.

    What kind of food are you looking for? Do you have a specific price range?

    We like a bit of everything, SWGB -- we're always open to trying a new place or cuisine, and we're just as likely to eat at a local 'dive' as an upscale joint. Just depends on what we're in the mood for! I just wondered what the local perspective is, and I've gotten some great ideas and been told about some places I haven't heard of before that I'll definitely check out. (thankyouthankyou!!)

    On another note... we also have a little thing we like to do, called a 'bike-crawl'. We basically start at one point, get on our bikes (these are the pedaling kind, not the harley kind) and ride a while, then stop at whatever local watering hole amuses us and have a beverage... then get back on the bikes and ride some more, until the next watering hole beckons. 30A is particularly conducive to this activity, we've found! We are particularly proud that we can still manage to pedal after our fourth or fifth stop...:lol:

    We will continue this grand tradition once we get moved and anyone who wishes is welcome to join us! :D

    What??:dunno: No hotdog at Tom Thumb??:dunno:The very first dog I bought at Tom was an experience..I grabbed my dog rushed home to eat it and there was no dog. Canuck lost it laughing so hard. He splained to me that you have to ADD the dog to the bun..what a goof.

    My fav for lunch is still the Village Market..not healthy but good fried seafood. Dinner is a major toss up D&K's, Borago, Fish out of Water. Come hungry and leave happy Lisa!!!:wave: I also think Nick's on the Bay is a local must.

    If I could pick one for each meal:
    breakfast/brunch: Hibiscus
    lunch/dinner: amore, but man cannot live by pizza alone. :D we love Borago, too.
