Meals on the Water: Davidson's and Dimitri's
Saturday started with a bike ride and breakfast at Clyde's, which was similar to a day I wrote about here.
For lunch, we wanted to try something new. Some locals (which I guess we are now too?) recommended Davidson's Dockside, which is across the river and hidden behind a marina, maybe a 10 minute drive. The decor was a little bit stark, however, I might have been feeling that because of the 50% occupancy rule from Covid.
We sat along the window near the bar, so we were able to look out at the water and watch the boats. Aric ordered grouper nuggets, which aren't actually on the menu, but our server suggested them. He enjoyed both those and the veggies. I had the crab soup and a crab cake appetizer, which I also liked. We were trying to eat light because we had dinner reservations at 6:00 and it was around 2:00.
Judging from the very hip-looking bar, drink specials, and upcoming list for live entertainment, this is a place we can't wait to go to again soon, to partake in everything it has to offer.
At 5:00, our friend Jason came to hang out, catch up, and see the house. At 5:40, we walked to Dimitri's on the Water, which is on the sponge docks for our 6:00 reservation. We had requested Yianni take care of us and a seat inside along the water. This was the theme of the day: let's enjoy the water while not melting in the July Florida heat.
Jason loved his gyro and crab cake app, and Aric and I absolutely devoured the hummus. For entrees, Aric had the chicken souvlaki and I tried the seafood pasta. As much as I love seafood and pasta, I rarely mix the two.
For people with kids, it's a good idea to get a seat along the water. Right before sunset, the kids throw pieces of bread into a TON of catfish. We watched some kids who loved it!
