I love when a new restaurant opens up somewhat near me that isn’t a chain restaurant! I’ve been stalking The Restorative on IG and was super excited when they finally opened! The Restorative is located in Dunedin Florida and is different because their menu changed almost daily! I think this is a good and bad thing. Good because I can go back every week to eat something new but bad because if I LOVE a course, I may not be able to have it again! Anyways, let me tell you and show you all the yummies my boyfriend and I got to eat!
Beef Carpaccio, Tomatoes, Capers, Pecorino
This was beefy, salty, and amazing. Everything on this plate together was just amazing. I don’t even know what else to say.
Egg Yolk Ravioli, Pecorino, Peppercorns
This was so rich and very yummy. The ravioli was cooked perfectly and the egg yolk just made everything taste creamy and yummy!
Hamachi Crudo, Seaweed Salsa Verde, Yuzu Kosho
Very delicious. It came with a seaweed salsa that was just so unique and made this crudo different! The fish was fresh and it was just great.
Pea Panna Cotta ,Crab Salad, Serrano Ham
WOW! I don’t like peas but I wanted to try this because its a PEA PANNA COTTA.. this isn’t something you see EVER so I had to try it. SO FREAKING GOOD. The mixture and texture of the pea panna cotta and crab salad was so unique in a good way. I wanted to order another one but I was too full at the end of the meal!
Toast, Uni, Bone Marrow Butter
I love uni and bone marrow so I had to get this. It was good but I wish there was more uni and maybe a side of real bone marrow for that EXTRA kick of flavor.
Confit Cobia, Summer Squash, Saffron Tomato Sauce
The fish and veggies were cooked perfectly! I don’t really like tomato sauces with cobia so this dish was good but not my favorite. My boyfriend enjoyed the sauce and ate it all though!
Short Ribs, Carrots, Black Cardamom, Onion Breadcrumbs
YUM! These were so tender and the mix of the carrots and the sauces made this hard to stop eating!
Brie Cheese Semifreddo, White Chocolate Cake, Tropical Fruit
Another unique and amazing dish. I’ve never had a cheese semifreddo before! The mixture of the cheese and fruit and cake were just a perfect combination!
Chocolate Ganche, Raspberry, Hazelnut, Whipped Caramel
Such a pretty plate with lots of yummy flavors. This one was good but did not compare to the brie cheese dessert!!
We ordered everything but 2 items on the menu, 3 craft beers, and 1 housemade soda and the total was around $121. Not too bad if you ask me!
Which dish from The Restorative looks the most delish to you?!
