Engine 15 Jax Beach

First things first, thanks to all of those who entered my Whole Foods Giveaway! Rachel H, you’re the lucky winner. You’ll be contacted at the email address you provided.

I may have mentioned this before, but I have a pretty awesome job. I’ve been there since February, and while it’s a lot of work, it’s also a lot of fun. A few weeks ago, some co-workers convinced me to cross the ditch and head over to Engine 15 Brewing Company. I know – it’s been open for ages, how have I not been there? I get questions like that all the time: “But you’re the Food Bitch! How have you not been there yet?” There’s a plethora of reasons: either time, money, distance, opportunity – I could go on. Trust me, I wish I could check so many places off my ever-growing list.

I eat lunch at my desk a lot… like most days a week a lot. And contrary to popular belief, I don’t like every meal to be battered, deep-fried and wrapped with bacon, so I often find myself opting for salads and sandwiches at lunch. We all know that can get boring rather quickly, so I’m glad my office is surrounded by tons of options on both Southside and St Johns Town Center.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year here in Jacksonville: The PLAYERS Championship Week!

And let me tell you, nothing beats The PLAYERS Championship food this year.

Because there are so many options, I’m just going to give you a quick rundown. I mean, I could write like a 12-part series on this, but I know no one cares to read that much nor do I really have to time to do that. So here’s your quick guide to all the food hot spots at this year’s tournament:

Pele’s Wood Fire Welcomes a New Chef

Pele's Wood Fire Happy Hour Menu

Another Pele’s Wood Fire post? Sure why not. Look, it’s not rocket science: You invite me to eat amazing food for free, I’ll do it. And I’ll take pictures of it. I’m a shameless food blogger like that, and Pele’s Wood Fire has got my number. So when they invited me and some of my fellow food blogging friends to come by, meet new Executive Chef Bradley Kennett, and try his concoctions, who was I to say no?

Come on. Like you would say no to Roasted Peach Risotto topped with a big ol’ seared scallop.
