As I have mentioned before, in other dining reviews, Sunday brunch is my favorite time and meal of the week. Picking up the Sunday newspaper, sipping on some good wine, and dining on something that includes both breakfast and lunch creations is my ideal way to spend a few leisurely hours each week. To date, I have found two restaurants that provide nearly ideal environments for that activity. The Standard Restaurant, located in the River District of Fort Myers, is a top venue that combines a credible wine list and appropriately varied menu. They offer endless Mimosas for $15, made with sparkling wines that may change from week to week. They negotiate with one or more of their wine distributors, to find appropriate wines that are of moderate quality and/or reputation, and have enough personality to be enjoyed on their own, yet not have their flavor and character completely masked when paired with orange juice. This is in direct contrast to 'Prime de Leon', located just around the corner ... more

If you go to this restaurant's website, to look at their menu, the first thing that you may notice is that the font they use is small, and the color contrast with the background is poor - making it less than easy to read. The next thing that you may notice is that the first food item listed is Foie Gras. This somewhat controversial food, with origins dating back more than four millennia, and which is illegal to produce in some states, happens to be one of my favorites. If you go back on the internet, and do a "Google" search for "wine to serve with Foie Gras", the first few thousand responses will all include, in one form or another, a wine called "Sauternes". This luscious, late-harvest, sweet white wine is produced in an appellation within the larger region of Bordeaux, France. There are a number of similar, but perhaps not comparable, wines which might also be listed, with sourcing as diverse as New York, California, Germany, central Europe and Australia, to name a few. So, why woul ... more

Tado Steakhouse

Just got in at 1700H (opening time) and had no problem finding a table after Deb had previously made a reservation for 002 / two people for dinner. While Deb and I were there we only saw another larger (005 / 006 total) group in the main dining area which really allowed the provided service by Jordan and overall kitchen staff-achieved food tasting experience to shine to its highest possible level. So that it does not seem that somehow I am getting remunerated for writing these consecutive critiques of my favorite restaurant in the state of Minnesota where I live (which I am not, let me state this clearly), I might as well find something negative to discuss here, as such: NOTHING, plain and simple this is the whole truth about what is happening at Tado’s Steakhouse. So, I (warning) might have to invent something for the fun of it, I might add. So, here I go: This time around I ordered only the glazed veal porterhouse steak with mushrooms and rice pilaf as a side dish, which proved a c ... more

I have been going to this restaurant for years and it is usually pretty good. Yesterday, my husband and I went there at about 12:30, so the buffet should have been going strong. I went down the buffet line and got several sides and when I got to the area where the meats are, they had no fried chicken. Now, fried chicken is the one thing that I go to any buffet for. They had no fried chicken. I asked the woman behind the counter if they were going to bring more out and she said "let me check". Let here check? Are you kidding me? She came back out and said they were cooking more that would be out in a "couple of minutes". Since my plate was already done except for meat, I asked how long and she said "about 5 minutes". I said OK and went to my table. I sat waiting until the rest of food on my plate was cold and the woman came to the table and asked what pieces of chicken I liked. I said I liked thighs. She left and I went back to waiting. She finally came back to me with one thigh and one ... more

Unfortunately, I had a pretty unpleasant experience at the Como location of Colossal Cafe. The service was pretty poor and the food was only okay. I had a breakfast sandwich and the bread was soggy and the sandwich was just kind of sloppy overall. My friend ordered a scone and they forgot to deliver it to our table even after repeated requests. I eventually had to go up to the display case and ask for it directly and wait until I physically had it in my hand so I could bring it back to my table. It was very busy, and I understand that waitstaff can get bogged down, but that definitely left a bad taste in my mouth figuratively (and the sandwich literally) at this particular location. Cheers, TR

Nice place with a large, varied menu with something for everyone. Bigogi appetizer is exceptional, but they do keep changing up their menu frequently. Fish tacos are great. Hard to tie down their type of food......they cover a bunch of stuff........try it, it's a great place. Parking can be tough at prime time.
