Lee County, Florida, is becoming a hotspot for culinary innovation, with a wave of new restaurants adding flavor and style to the dining scene. From coastal gems to urban hubs, these establishments have either recently opened their doors or are eagerly anticipated to do before March 2024.

Crow’s Nest Steakhouse

Located at ’Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa on Captiva Island along the shore of the exquisite Gulf of Mexico, this second-floor restaurant boasts amazing views any tie of the day. Chef Greg Nelson, formerly of Doc Ford’s, offers favorites like surf-and-turf, whiskey-cured pork belly, crab-stuffed cold- water lobster tail and Prime steaks dry-aged in-house for 30 days. For Whiskey lovers, the bar stocks nearly 50 mostly American whiskeys, which are stirred into an array of cocktails from the classics to the ever popular smoked old-fashioned made with smoked cinnamon bitters. Perfect for weekend get-aways or even a little day tripping to see the sites. Crow’s Nest Steakhouse can make any occasion extra special.

Le Colonial

New to Naples, coming soon, is Le Colonial, founded in 1993 famous for French Vietnamese cuisine.

Co-owner Joe King and Founder and Co-owner Rick Wahlstedt deliver on romance and immaculate vibes on the bustling strip of Fifth Avenue.

"Our goal with the Naples location is to create something very special for South Floridians – an ambience that evokes a very distinctive vibe, which we feel will resonate beautifully in this relaxed but buzzy beachfront, town square setting. We are very excited to be part and partner of this community and hope to be part of memories to come for friends, neighbors and visitors alike"

-Rick Wahlstedt.
