Happy Hour at 7th Avenue Social

is a restaurant in Naples, FL.  From their website, it is a place to "gather, eat and drink". They have a happy hour that runs daily from 3-6 P.M., and one can sit anywhere in the restaurant for happy hour.

This can be in the dining area,

the bar, where they may have entertainment as they did that day,

or the common, or "social" areas of the restaurant.

Happy hour features 50% off tacos, salads and sandwiches from their Menu, in addition to a variety of beverage specials. I had heard this was a really good happy hour and wanted to come in to try it. The restaurant did not have happy hour when I came here and Blogged about my meal last year.

Hungry from a Chocolate and Wine Pairing just before, I tried a couple tacos and a salad.

The first thing I ordered was the short rib taco.

Barbecued short rib was topped with red salsa, Cotija cheese and Pico De Gallo. This was a very good, if not exceptional taco.

The next thing ordered was a Chili Verde pork taco,

with verde salsa, Cotija cheese and mango pico de gallo. Really good. Last was a salad, which was the restaurants version of a Cobb salad. I inadvertently ordered shrimp on mine, which made it even better.

They substituted Benton Ham for the traditional bacon and an herb vinaigrette in place of blue cheese dressing which can be too heavy. This was good and very filling. If you ever forget what is on a traditional Cobb salad remember the acronym, EAT COBB (egg, avocado, tomato, chicken, onion, bacon and blue cheese).

My dining companions (DCs) that day were not as hungry as I. A grouper taco was ordered

and was topped with green salsa, cabbage, poblano cream and mango pico de gallo.

A shrimp taco finished the taco tour.

These were seasoned as were the grouper tacos. Both DCs really liked their selections.

Just as with my first visit here almost a year ago, the food at 7th Avenue Social was very good to great, and made even better with happy hour pricing. For the pricing and food quality, 7th Avenue Social easily ranks in the top 10 for happy hours in Naples, FL. Highly recommended.

It's a wrap for the 200th post on Forks.
