I really try to be supportive of local restaurants, especially those that stay true to Florida’s heritage. You might be wondering what Florida’s cuisine is about when I make such an assertion. Don’t worry, the rest of the world has the same perception. Very few people understand what influences have combined to make our regional cuisine unique. There are several reasons for this, including lack of consistency, spotty quality and a general lack of attention to normal preparation techniques, not to mention the huge glut of tourist spots around major attractions that mass produce food without a second thought to any real concept.
