is a restaurant/jazz club located in Bayfront, a mixed use commercial/residential development in Naples, FL.
They have a very nice bar
and restaurant area where they were setting up the stage for the evening's show.
My dining companions (DC1 and DC2) and I shared a number of items from the Menu.
DC1 ordered the Alto Burger.
A generous-sized hamburger was topped with Aged Cheddar, fried egg, tomatoes, red onion, Bibb Lettuce and fries. Love the green tomato here, a great touch.
DC2 ordered a couple of starters which we all tried. The Tuna Cocktail was the first thing ordered.
Cubed Yellowfin Tuna was topped with chili lime soy and Cilantro Microgreens, surrounded by Wasabi and served with fried Wonton Skins. Light but delicious.
DC2 also ordered the Charcuterie and cheese plate.
Pickled vegetables were served with apple slices, Candied Walnuts, Mortadella, Prosciutto, Soppressata, mango/ginger Chutney and Manchego, Gruyere and a Triple Cream Brie cheese. Really, really good.
We finished up the meal with an Alto Chocolate Trio.
A Flourless Chocloate Torte was paired with a dark chocolate Mousse and white chocolate ice cream served atop ground Graham Crackers. I do not have much of a sweet tooth but liked what I sampled.
While we ate, we were treated to the first set by the Rebecca Richardson Trio,
good music that made the meal all the more pleasant. To top it all off, for the next month or so everything served at the restaurant (bar only) is 50% off from 4-7 P.M., a great value.
I would like to thank Chef Mereday for his unexpected largess by providing our meal gratis that evening.
Although I liked the food at the Original Mereday's a bit more, I would definitely come back for happy hour and more good music.
