Joyce LaFray’s Big Guide to Florida Restaurants

June 12, 2014

Easily, this is Florida’s largest and most popular guide. Suggestions run the gamut, from hidden seafood huts to glitzy SouthBeach gourmet bistros. There are hundreds of restaurants where you can savor Yellowtail snapper in a candlelit alcove, indulge in crispy conch fritters at an outdoor patio or take out a bucket of fresh stone crabs. Twenty some years reviewing restaurant helps LaFray offer what other guides overlook – off the beaten path spots that serve the most authentic Key Lime pie, the best view, the largest selection of awesome wines and just-brewed beers, the most romantic, the most enticing. There’s a special section for Disneyland devotees and lots of great suggestions of what to order.
