introduced their concept to the west coast of Florida in January by connecting with Worden Farm in Punta Gorda, a St Pete Saturday Morning Market
regular, and River City Grill
Executive Chef Steve Iadevaia to create a meal between rows of vegetables at twilight in the great outdoors.
Iadevaia served up jerk alligator ribs from Cypress Creek Farms of Starke, FL., that fell right off the bone and beer-poached Florida shrimp that were a succulent table favorite. Tampa's own Cigar City Brewery
and Le Segunda Bakery
also provided food and drink featured during dinner.
