Amelia Island Restaurant Week

January 17th, 2011 by theAddison

This event is coming up fast!  The local restaurants have prepared special menus at special prices for Amelia Island’s Restaurant Week.  Held during the week of January 23 through 30, Restaurant Week gives local chefs a chance to flex their creative muscles and it gives you a chance to really save some money while enjoying their creations.  Each participating restaurant will offer a fixed price menu, including three courses and a non-alcoholic beverage, for either $19 or $29.

Some of my favorite participating restaurants within a short walk of the Addison are:

  • 29 South
  • Bonito Grill & Sushi
  • Cafe Karibo
  • Espana Restaurant & Tapas
  • Joe’s 2nd Street Bistro
  • Kelley’s Courtyard Cafe
  • Le Clos
  • LuLu’s at the Thompson House and
  • O’Kane’s Irish Pub & Eatery

Contact information and links to their menus can be found on our local dining page.

Trust me and reserve ahead.  Our local restaurants are very good, very small and they do fill up very fast during events like this.

What else is happening at the Addison in January?  A previous guest liked our B&B so much that she booked the entire inn for two nights for a corporate retreat.  She is bringing her franchisees to Amelia Island for a couple of days of meetings and corporate bonding.  We have done this a couple of times before at the Addison and it works really well.  The spouses have plenty to do in the Historic Downtown during the meeting time and the delegates get to hang out here looking at pie-charts all day.

We’ve got a couple of slow days ahead of us this week.  I’ll be working in the garden getting it ready for Spring.  The Garden Show (www.AmeliaGarden.com) is the first weekend in March and we’ll get some good planting ideas there but in the meantime there is weeding, trimming and mulching to do.  There is nothing like working outside to build up an appetite and I just can’t stop thinking about Restaurant Week!
