Tar­pon Bay Restau­rant: New- Fash­ioned Clas­sic. The Hy­att Re­gency- Co­conut Point de­signed its restau­rant to pay homage to the Old Florida fish house. Con­sid­er­ably more well- dressed than the real thing, the am­bi­ence none­the­less feels “cot­tage com­fort­able.” From the ce­viche raw bar, one of the eight types of raw seafood that is “cooked” in var­i­ous cit­rus mari­nades is worth try­ing. For en­trées, the crispy fried red snap­per is a vis­ual and gas­tro­nomic mas­ter­piece. Un­usual ingredients and ex­quis­ite fresh­ness de­scribe dishes like ba­nana leaf– wrapped mahi mahi with gin­ger- lime pesto, brown but­ter– basted scal­lops with saf­fron vegetable risotto, and herb- crusted chicken with roast­edgar­lic po­lenta. 5001 Co­conut Road, Es­tero, 239- 390- 4295, co­conut­point.hy­att.com.
