BITE by BITE: Second Helping

2017 Dining Guide by Cuisine

Posted

____________________

If it’s true, as they say, that variety is the spice of life, then Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia circa 2017 ought to come with a warning like the one on the side of a McDonald’s™ coffee cup: “CAUTION: Contents Totally Rocking the Epicurean World.”

As we were putting together our 2017 BITE by BITE Dining Guide by Cuisine, the sheer volume of choices—especially newly opening restaurants—nearly put us off our feed. (As if.) From St. Simons Island to the Matanzas Bay, the types and styles of cuisine are, well, more than a mouthful. From good ol’ ’Merican ball park hot dogs to the most delicate and inspired of culinary masterpieces, including all kinds of exotic and ethnic delights, you can likely find it all in your neighborhood.

So sit back, relax, and settle in for a second helping of our near-legendary dining guide. Just one thing, though: Keep your elbows off the freakin’ table, aight?
