DOC FORD’S SANIBEL RUM BAR & GRILLE

Novel Cuisine. Lo­cal restau­rant folk joined with Southwest Florida nov­el­ist Randy Wayne White to de­velop a restau­rant based on a

fic­tional char­ac­ter, and it’s a best-seller! The menu of­fers sand­wiches, sal­ads and en­trees. Don’t skip the mo­jito. LD

THE IS­LAND COW

Bovine Bounty. With a mas­sive menu that fea­tures ev­ery­thing from omelets to fish to pasta, this is no beef joint, de­spite the cow ref­er­ences. The fish din­ners are a good choice, un­less it’s break­fast, when you might con­sider the fish omelets. Check out the new full bar, of­fer­ing trop­i­cal cock­tails and sig­na­ture drinks, in­clud­ing their home­made White Mango San­gria! BLD

THE JACARANDA

Lo­cal Leg­end. It’s a ro­man­tic, in­ti­mate dinner house; a re­laxed, open-air gath­er­ing place; and an en­er­getic nightspot all in one. Food ranges from splen­did seafood in­side to tasty burg­ers and sand­wiches in the lounge, where there’s live en­ter­tain­ment nightly. D
