The Gourmettes, two friends with the strictest of standards, have surveyed a ten-mile swath on either side of I-95, I-75, I-4, and I-10, and found the best spots for seafood, bar-b-que, Cuban, soul food, steaks, pancakes, sandwiches, key lime pie, you name it.
Included are easy-to-follow directions and cross-referenced indexes. User-friendly and fun, with around 100 entries organized by interstate, this engagingly written book includes photos throughout conveying the character (and characters) of individual restaurants, as well as sidebars on everything from local recipes to Florida lore.
