Why We’re Here Mar26

Why We’re Here

Food is important to us. It’s more than sustaining nutrients to get us through the day. It’s palate-pleasing, yum-inducing, salivary gland-stimulating life. And while we are huge fans of whipping up a delicious meal from scratch in the kitchen (my husband more than me – I prefer eating...

Tebuleh Café

Tebuleh Café doesn’t look like the kind of place you could find an inexpensive Mediterranean lunch, but it is. It’s located inside Planet Ozone, a gas station, which is also home to a Mediterranean and Middle Eastern market and a juice bar. A strange place for a cozy diner-esque...

East Ocean Bistro

If you’re looking for a more upscale dining experience and friendly service, East Ocean Bistro is the place to go. We’ve eaten there twice and enjoyed it both times. It’s a cozy, more elegant dining experience, but the lunch prices are reasonable, especially if you’re a fan of salads,...

Salerno Pizza

Continually on a quest to find the best local pizza, I am unfortunately still left hanging after dining at Salerno Pizza in Stuart. Quaint place, nice and cozy, friendly server, not busy on a Sunday night, but still leaving something to be desired. Specifically in the flavor department. We...

Green Mango

When we went to The Green Mango’s grand opening a couple months ago, we were intrigued to say the least. Dutch fusion? What is Dutch fusion? (A mixture of cuisines from the Dutch East Indies and the Spice Islands, apparently.) We sampled some appetizers, but we wanted more. We finally went...

Tin Fish

One of the newer Stuart Restaurants, Tin Fish, was not what I would have expected. In my mind, I imagined a sit-down happenin’ sort of place, only with seafood. You know, casual but modern, a server for every table. But that’s not how it was at all. When we arrived to eat with family, I...

Tijuana Flats

We had been anxious to give Tijuana Flats a try since it opened a few months ago. We both love Tex-Mex and we were excited to head over when someone gave us a coupon. It was another restaurant I had misconceptions about. I again thought it would be a full-service restaurant, but wasn’t...

Pelican Café

The best thing about Pelican Café is that they have their own beach right on the river. That’s right; take your shoes off, dig your toes into the sand, and relax at a picnic table as you enjoy the view of the river and the bridge from right next to the boardwalk any time of the day or...

Luna Italian Restaur...

There’s a nice little spot right along the Flagler strip in Downtown Stuart that is the perfect place for a quick, tasty, and filling lunch, dinner, or mid-afternoon snack: Luna. By night, a cozy sit-down Italian restaurant on the inside, but all evening and afternoon you can snag some...

Sachi Sushi

I love Asian food. I have probably already mentioned this once or twice. So I was naturally excited to try out Sachi Sushi here in Stuart. But this time it was more than my husband and I on a night out. I believe there were nine of us and we still received good service. The restaurant wasn’t...

Carmela’s Bric...

Usually when I walk past Carmela’s the parking lot is packed. A sure sign of a good dining experience, so I’ve been anxious to give it a try since we moved in down the road. At 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon there were plenty of tables available and our server had plenty of time to be...
