Conde Nast Traveler ranks Naples on its Best Food Cities list
It’s no longer a secret how important food and dining is to the residents of Naples. As people
continue to move here from different parts of the country and world, they are bringing along with them a desire for familiar fare. Conde Nast Traveler is taking the secret of Naples' restaurant scene to the international stage, ranking Naples as 20th on a list of "Best Food Cities." A Conde Nast Traveler writer had this to say of our slice of paradise:
"Though Miami may grab the bulk of the accolades when it comes to Florida's hottest food cities, there's a food revolution happening in the Sunshine State's southwestern quadrant, with Naples at the helm. Given its tropical climate and Gulf of Mexico perch, you're going to get at least one seafood option at almost any restaurant you visit. And if that's why you're here, the boat-to-belly offerings at Truluck's—including its famous stone crabs—are some of the area's freshest. But Naples is a cosmopolitan city, and as such has a vast number of impressive international eats. For French Provencal, there's Claudio Scaduto's Côte d'Azur; for Spanish tapas, off the beaten path, try IM Tapas. Inca's Kitchen serves up authentic Peruvian dishes like lomo saltado (sautéed beef loin) in a comfortable setting. If you can't choose just one, Mereday's offers an eclectic mix of flavors from around the world (think mussels with Indian madras curry and coconut milk)." I think we are lucky to live in Naples, Florida, where a new restaurant opens almost every week, it’s worth being adventurous and trying something new.
