Fodor's Review

For those who need a break from the urban sprawl, or are just in search of a decent early dinner after a Giraffe Ranch excursion, this farm-to-table eatery will hit the spot. Situated in an old one-story farmhouse in the middle of a kumquat grove, this spot serves as a low-key escape for the most cultured of Tampa Bay residents (though casual dress is fine here). Popular dishes include, as one might expect, fried green tomatoes, shrimp creole, honey-chili-glazed quail,

and rabbit confit, but keep in mind that the menu is ever-changing with the seasons. The beer menu features local brews, and the wine list is extensive. Brunch (11–2) is offered Sunday.
