Beach Road Wine Bar and Bistro (BRWB) is a restaurant serving lunch and dinner in Englewood, FL about forty-five minutes north of Fort Myers. It has been about four years since I had dined there and my traveling companion had never been. I have blogged about BRWB before, and was very impressed by the food.
The dining area has a lovely view of neighboring Lemon Bay but what struck me the most were the overhead canopies in the outdoor dining area. Not only were they very aesthetically pleasing, but practical in that they very much mitigated the heat from the overhead sun. These were very prevalent over streets and alleyways on a recent visit to Southern Spain and I have no doubt the proprietors were inspired by this also.
The first thing ordered was the triple beet salad. This was one of the more visually appealing salads I have ever been served with a flavor profile to match. The salad was made from Florida Citrus and honey whipped goat cheese, red and gold beets, marinated candy-cane beets, greens, balsamic vinaigrette, blueberries, blackberries and sunflower seeds. It was delicious and most highly recommended.
