The Floridian a St. Augustine Gem
The Floridan came highly recommended by several locals including a waitress at another restaurant. This down home restaurant serves up healthy Southern comfort food that’s regionally-authentic and full of southern charm. They have many vegetarian options plus are happy to substitute tempeh or tofu for many of the meat dishes. You’ll see the option for tempeh or tofu clearly marked as an option on the menu. Their menus change with the seasons, so you ‘re always guaranteed the freshest local ingredients. We tried the Tofu N’Dumplings made with sweet potatoes and served with cornbread. We also ordered the Spicy Melt sandwich which comes with blackened tofu, datil-chipotle mayo, roasted bell peppers, tomato and fresh spinach on whole wheat bread. Both were very good, but we’ve been dreaming of the and can’t wait to go back for some more.
Their goal is to make really great food using local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients as much as possible, and to provide a comfortable and casual atmosphere in which this food can be enjoyed. Well, we all agreed that they not only meet their goal, but far surpassed it.
