The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill Authentic All the Way!!!

American Press Travel News–January 9th, Port St Lucie, FL-Barb and Bob “On the Road Again”- This time at The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill. For decades, Barb and I have dined at Greek Restaurants all over the USA and the world, particularly in the Mediterranean side of the world. What we found in our own backyard in St Lucie, County now obviates the need to dine on Greek food anywhere else. The foods and feeling of being at home were a huge joy! Lets face it; we all eat, and need to eat, but really enjoying what we sup on also has another huge component. Get into your Greek, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is located at 10513 SW Meeting St. shop 101 Port St Lucie, /fl. www.thegreatgreek.com  They offer authentic recipes and Legendary ancient recipes, too!

Kostas Family Restaurant in Dillsboro, N.C.

Best Calamari to start our meal, ever! Delicious and properly fried! Finished the plate between us. Usually don’t as too much breading and so-so sauce. Not at Kostas, promise they are first rate!!
Baklava is a perfect Greek dessert! Sweet and a great topping off of a great meal!
Barb was much pleased with her chicken dish, so was I, I finished it the next day. So much food, so good that why not take it home too!
A Basa fish specialty! All Greek to me!

American Press Travel News–May 1st, Dillsboro, N.C. at Kostas Family Restaurant.  Just heading into this little “burg” there are two terrific restaurants. First up-Kostas Family Restaurant. The staff was spectacular! From the tall-glass-of-water-owner to the wait staff and even the register gal, you felt that their name was apropos-Kostas “Family” Restaurant. Every diner who has visited a Greek owners restaurant knows about the Greek Salad. We both had one as part of our main dish platters. Decent amount of Greek Olives, tomatoes, greens and onions. The salad dressing was Mediterranean delicious. Grilled Basa fish topped with Feta Cheese, Spinach, onions and tomatoes with rice Pilaf. Together with fresh, hot Pita Pocket breads-WOW! Besides all the actual Greek specialties the restaurant had Italian dishes and all American ribs and meats too! Barb opted for a pasta dish with grilled chicken Parmesan, covered in real mozzarella, and oven baked with spaghetti. We finished off our meal with honey, nutty-stuffed Baklava and mom’s rice pudding! When you get over Dillsboro or Silva, N.C. way give a call, no reservations necessary most of the time: 828-631-0777  Visit them at: www.kostasdillsboro.com

APressTravelNews-Feb 25th,-Bob and “Barb On The Road Again” & “Stopping to Smell the Roses” in Port Charlotte, at the Wyvern Hotel. Barb and I love great dishes, great ice cream, great views, friendly, hospitable folks and the feeling that your always on vacation. No kidding, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda are such places. We came into town to work on our assigned article from New Pioneer Magazine. The article is about the Worden Farms Agri-Business and 3-Suns Bison Ranch, as the side-bar. While in Punta Gorda we visited with our friends Janis and her husband and Jack Montague. We tried to get some daylight between our short time we had in the area, so we could also visit the great Van Hubbard. Just couldn’t do it!  We were scheduled to visit the solar powered new town of  Babcock Ranch. We did and were mightily impressed. A gorgeous planned community that will have everything any fine town or village has, but with one giant unique feature: Totally sun-powered electricity! Not open to public yet, there is a school, lake-front restaurant, homes lakes, boardwalks, bike paths, sports store, gift shop, ice cream shop, etc. Grand opening will be next November we were told. There will be a show and tell on the ranch March 12th.

Oh, love that hot fudge on Pistachio Ice Cream with a cherry on top!
The Worden’s! PH.D’s in Agriculture, they are helping provide healthy, delicious veggies and herbs, sunflowers and a whole lot more in Punta Gorda.
Great Bison meat available at 3-Suns!

 The best ice cream we ever had was just across the parking lot from the Wyvern. Walk around the waterfront marina and enjoy at this great mom and pop ice cream shop, the Harbor Walk Scoops& Bites!
