With Valentine's Day fast approaching I thought it would be a great idea to list some of our awesome restaurants around town! If you have any to add please leave a comment with the place and why! Jacksonville is by far a hub for amazing food, that being said - I had a very hard time narrowing it down!
"III Forks Steakhouse embodies the Best of the American Steakhouse. The finest USDA Prime steak, mouthwatering, buttery lobster and ocean-fresh seafood are prepared to perfection, exact to order. They hand-select the finest USDA Prime and only deem the top .005% of beef acceptable. Their selection offers abundant marbling, juiciness, tenderness, and superior flavor. Experience the warm and intimate surroundings of a preferred fine dining restaurant."
"We are proud to source most of our ingredients from local and regional farmers and purveyors. We believe that this practice fits a more sustainable model that enables us to provide high-quality food that is as fresh as possible. Amazing meats, produce, seafood, and dairy products are found throughout Florida and Georgia and we utilize them whenever possible."
"Located in South Jacksonville Beach, Eleven South provides a warm and elegant setting to enjoy seasonally inspired world cuisine by our award winning team. Named for its distinctive location, just blocks from the ocean, Eleven South balances a casual environment, professional service and an exceptional menu offering, while maintaining a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
We believe fine dining can be fun and we invite you try it first hand. You will see why so many of our customers come back time and time again and why so many love to say…Meet me at Eleven."
"Taverna draws inspiration from the simplicity and warmth of rustic Italian kitchens. Located in Jacksonville’s historic San Marco neighborhood, this rustic, yet sophisticated dining destination has earned many accolades since opening in 2009."
The Flying Iguana
"Live music, creative signature cocktails, local craft beers and an exciting fusion of Latin American cuisine including: eclectic tacos, creative entrees, spirits and live music in a modern atmosphere. The Flying Iguana is located in Neptune Beach, Florida just a block away from the Atlantic Ocean and in the heart of the north beaches entertainment district."
"Jonathan Insetta, Jason Eddy, and Michael McKinney, along with an outstanding crew, strive to provide a warm, genuine dining experience without pretense in a bustling, fun atmosphere with smiling, attentive service."
"Seasons 52 is a celebration of what’s good now. Seasonally inspired menus featuring ingredients at their peak of freshness. Rustic cooking techniques like brick oven roasting and open-fire grilling that bring out natural flavors. And an ever-changing selection of global wines. All in a casually sophisticated setting. Discover what’s good now, this and every season."

Hello! I'm Diona. I am a wife and mother. You may notice I post a lot about motherhood, it's a huge part of who I am!
I love essential oils, Starbucks, hot tea, going to the zoo, being at the beach, traveling (any and everywhere), and having lengthy discussions - I'm a big time talker once you get me going.
I can see the beauty in a mud puddle. I love anything creative and artsy - crocheting, sewing, painting, drawing, graphic design and web design, you name it, I probably do it!
Aside from Housewives In The City I am also a full time photographer with a few other small jobs on the side.
