Jean Le Boeuf, food critic for The News-Press, has lived in Fort Myers for more than 30 years so putting together a list of the top 25 restaurants was no easy task. Artisan Eatery was pleased to make the list! Le Boeuf notes that Artisan Eatery is “by far the youngest restaurant on this list. But it’s also one of the most brilliant.” Thank you for the recondition of our “delicious and 100 percent scratch-made” dishes, we are honored to be included with Fort Myers’ best restaurants!
The full write-up for Artisan Eatery:
8. Artisan Eatery
Open since early December, this is by far the youngest restaurant on this list. But it’s also one of the most brilliant. Artisan Eatery calls itself “fast-fine” dining, meaning you order at the counter, take a number, grab a craft beer from the cooler, then wait for your food to be delivered. That “fast-fine” food is the vision of chef-owner Tim Yoa, a classically trained, former resort chef who now focuses his energy on perfect burgers, serious Benedicts and Cuban sandwiches made with sous-vide pork. Yoa’s creations are delicious and 100 percent scratch-made, from the flaky croissants stuffed with chocolate, to the hand-cut fries, to dinner specials that may include seared diver scallops over Parmesan polenta. That all of this is served quickly and with charm only affirms Artisan’s brilliance.
