Gulf & Main - - Epicurious -

Blu Sushi: Cobalt Cool. Start with . . . well, start with what­ever the chefs de­cide to send you. In fact, just put the menu down and tell the chefs to bring what they sug­gest. In their hands, you can­not pos­si­bly go wrong. They’ve proven this ( again) with one of their new cre­ations— the TOTI. com Sushi Roll. It’s packed with fla­vor, just like the mag­a­zines. Next, or­der a nice bot­tle of chilled sake ( think dry white wine), kick back, and en­joy the flashy flir­ta­tious show. The lava drops are sur­real. 13451 McGre­gor Boule­vard, Fort My­ers, 239- 489- 1500; 10045 Gulf Coast Drive, Fort My­ers, 239- 334- BLU3, blusushi. com. L, D. Pinch­ers Crab Shack: Gulf to Ta­ble. The best way to treat qual­ity ingredients is to present them as true as pos­si­ble, and when you’re next door to a body of wa­ter chock­ful of plump, de­li­cious del­i­ca­cies, then that rule be­comes law. This seafood group has in­tro­duced hun­gry din­ers to the fruits of the Gulf of Mex­ico for nearly two decades and has gained world­wide fame and an in­ter­na­tional fol­low­ing by pre­sent­ing a steady stream of im­pos­si­bly fresh grouper, shrimp, blue crabs, and stone crabs in a per­fectly Florida, flip- flop, and ca­sual en­vi­ron­ment. Fresh, cut- to­order fries, made- from- scratch slaw, a deca­dently rich hot cheese and crab dip, and full- on fruity, trop­i­cal cock­tails com­plete the ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s ca­sual. It’s fun. And it’s in­cred­i­bly fresh.
