Fodor's Expert Review Beach Bistro

$$$$ Bradenton Contemporary

Editor's Note: This location is reported to be under new ownership and therefore this review may contain inaccuracies.

The menu at this cozy beachfront spot offers such standards as a melt-in-your-mouth, herb-rubbed rack of lamb; seafood bouillabaisse; and duckling confit with peppercorn-and-cognac demi-glace. But the menu also includes a variety of specials and small plates. The signature "One Helluva Soup" is made from plum tomatoes with sweet cream and blue cheese. Every night, five or six specials supplement the menu, and you can also get a prix-fixe tasting menu of favorites. Smaller appetites can save some pesos by ordering from the menu of small plates served at the bar, which features the likes of "lobstercargots," large chunks of buttery lobster. Outside seating at tables that are directly on the beach offers amazing sunset views.
