Have you ever had a meal where you are thinking the next day, “if I could only have one more bite?” Last week I had the opportunity to dine at PJ’s Seagrille for lunch while visiting Boca Grande. My two guests and I had a delightful time. We sat in what I would call the Florida room – a glassed encased room with views of the gulf. It was bright and cheery.
We started our meal with one of their starter dishes, the Oasis Plate. Oh my, it was absolutely delicious. The Oasis Plate included humus and baba ganouj served with marinated olives, roasted peppers, cut vegetables and warm flat bread. This portion size was very generous and everything was so fresh. It was absolutely delicious.
For our lunch one of my guests had the Pita Chicken Sandwich. Our extremely helpful and pleasant waiter had shared this was one of their most popular dishes. The pita sandwich included grilled julienne chicken lightly blackened. This was then topped with grilled onions, tomato and pesto mayonnaise served on fresh baked pita bread. The sandwich came with the side of your choice as well. “It was scrumptious” proclaimed my friend.
My daughter, who has gluten intolerance, was delighted with her sweet potato soup. Our waiter was very attentive to making sure the dish did not include gluten. I did have a wondering spoon and tried this. It was just yummy, just like “Thanksgiving in a bowl”.
I decided to try the fresh seafood of the day which was grouper. The grouper was lightly blackened and served with a unique caper tarter sauce. It was so fresh it melted in my mouth.
Everyone at the table gave PJ’s Seagrille the thumbs up. When you’re in Boca Grande, I highly recommend this spectacular restaurant.
