APtravelnews-April 8th, Rustico in Port St. Lucie, West, FL.–Cuisine, authentic cuisine of every country is definitely a treat to me and Barb! Flavors (sabors) of often unique spices, seafood’s, fish and preparations of “everything island” is what we just found at Rustico.
This is a nice and airy, restaurant with lots of smiling wait staff and dishes you most definitely would have to boat or fly to Puerto Rico to experience. WOW! what a great luncheon meal! a pork platter, a platter of beef stew, both with perfect rice, sweet plantains, red beans with potatoes, and both dishes enough for an extra meal tomorrow! We also had a real Puerto Rican Flan dessert made with Guava flavor and very interestingly different from our regular Cuban Flan-we loved it too! We found out that the family of Umberto Torres, his wife and mom are from a 5th generation family in the coffee business called Cafe Lareno. We took some home too! Rustico Chef Steve Beerly did a fine job of laying out our lunch feast that everyone that visits Rustico will enjoy. They are open for Breakfast and Lunch from 7 am to 3 pm every day. Rustico is located next door to Berry Fresh on Port St. Lucie West Blvd. at 1724 SW St. Lucie, West Port St. Lucie. Phone them at 772- 333-0776
