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.
