is a beachfront restaurant in The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club.
I love this restaurant because of it's outside seating,
and understated elegance inside.
My dining companion (DC) and I were there for lunch. I was fortunate that day to have vintner Frank Baroudi as my DC, owner of Puro Uno vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina.
His story and approach to making wine is very interesting and the subject of an upcoming blog post. Now for the food.
HB's has a number of interesting things on their lunch,
and wine and beer menu.
We then ordered lunch. I ordered the Grouper tacos.
This was served with Chipotle- flavored Sour Cream, Cilantro lime Coleslaw and Pico De Gallo. Tasty.
DC ordered the seared tuna.
Seared Ahi (Yellowfin) tuna was served with apple and Fennel salad and topped with a Pomegranate Balsamic Reduction. The flavor was great but unfortunately there was not very much of it as the tuna portion size was somewhat anemic. I think this would be best left to an appetizer.
This restaurant has a beautiful setting, one of the best in Naples. The food, on the whole is very good and I would come back here without hesitation.
That's that for another review on Forks.
