Fresh From Florida is thrilled to welcome five new restaurants to its “On The Menu” restaurant program! All establishments have one thing in common: their menus include delicious ingredients from Florida, including produce grown by local farmers and seafood caught in Florida’s waters.
Bella Brava, located in St. Petersburg, opened its doors in 2005 and combines Italian cuisine with an ultramodern lifestyle. Their menu features an assortment of pastas and antipasti, flatbreads, pizzas and calzones. Dine at Bella Brava for an extraordinary view of the iconic St. Pete Pier, beautiful Tampa Bay and lively Beach Drive. Check out their menu here.
The next “On The Menu” restaurant, Stillwaters Tavern, is also located in St. Petersburg. The restaurateurs at Stillwaters blend traditional American dishes with old world flavors, incorporating both land and sea. They also collaborate with local artisans, farmers and foragers to supply seasonally and locally produced dairy, vegetables, seafood and shellfish.

Punta Gorda’s Captain’s Table, located in Fisherman’s Village Waterfront Mall, Resort and Marina, offers stunning views of Charlotte Harbor and serves the freshest gulf seafood and hand-cut steaks from their award-winning chef.
