“At the urging of a friend I discovered Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant and walked into a fusion experience. The selection of fresh ingredients and cross-cultural diversity led me to the Tandoori Chicken. The chicken is marinated in aromatic Indian spices, grilled, and served atop a salad of organic spring mix, cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes, olives, artichokes and feta cheese. Be certain to try the remarkable sangria and a mango lassi for dessert!”Dr. Raoul RichardsonSenior V.P.  of Research and Development, Baheth Research & Development Laboratories LTD

I love working downtown and my go-to lunch spot is The Noble South. With a friendly neighborhood feel, it’s classic Southern food at its best. The BLT is hard to beat. They keep it classic with bacon  and heirloom tomatoes on toasted wheat bread, but add kale and housemade green goddess dressing for an updated twist. Not only do I always enjoy the food, but the atmosphere is fun and welcoming.” — Kristi Galloway, Community Relations Officer, Regions Bank

“One of my favorite places on Sunday nights is Cousin Vinny’s in Daphne. I gravitate to the spaghetti and meatballs, with just the right amount of well-seasoned meat sauce, perfectly cooked noodles and two meatballs only slightly smaller than tennis balls. It is truly something special. The garlic toast and a glass of Chianti or Cabernet blend round out a delightful supper that helps prepare for the week ahead.” Dr. Marshall ShoemakerDoctor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Shoemaker OB-GYN

“The blackened by-catch fish sandwich from Bayside Grill at the Grand Hotel is one of my go-tos. Sourcing of food is important to me, so the fact that they serve wild Gulf seafood is a plus. I order it bun-free, and the side of apple slaw is crisp, light and not too sweet. Along with handmade chutney and relishes, it is a truly delicious sandwich! The southwest view of the Bay at sunset doesn’t hurt the experience at all.” — Ameri’ca TickleOwner/Designer, Tickle Creative Company
