Naples Originals’ Foodie Camp
On October 26, Bayside welcomed 25 guests to Foodie Camp, a wonderful offering from Naples Originals, a friendly consortium of some of Naples’ best locally owned and operated restaurants. Guests enjoyed a glass of wine and a delightful lunch of Blue Crab Spring Rolls, Teriyaki Salmon, and Bouillabaisse while Chef Abel demonstrated how to prep those dishes in a home kitchen. We heard lots of oohs and ahs as each course was served, and saw clean plates heading back to the kitchen after lunch.
Foodie Camp is an annual event, in which dozens of the Naples Originals participate, including our sister restaurant Ridgway Bar & Grill, with proceeds benefitting St. Matthew’s House. If you missed your chance this year, we do hope to see you next year!
All Spruced Up
With a new paint job inside, vibrant new cushions on our Upper Deck lounge seating, and lots of elbow grease put into overall refreshing things around the restaurant, Bayside is ready for season! After 25 years of business, things do occasionally need to be touched up, and the in-between season is the perfect time to tend to these needs. As our northern friends are making their way back south, and the pace of things in and around Naples and Venetian Village is steadily picking up, we want to make sure we are putting our best foot forward so that Bayside remains your go-to destination for many more years!
Lunch at Bayside
Is there really anything better than a leisurely lunch spent with friends at Bayside? The office and meetings can wait, the phone is in your pocket or purse, and the ambiance is welcoming. Other days, maybe you’re looking for a lovely and reliable spot to entertain business clients. Surely they’ll be inclined to sign on whatever dotted line you’re proposing after an hour spent gazing out at the bay off of Bayside. Or perhaps you’re among the fortunate bunch who set their calendar to whatever strikes your fancy day to day.
Lunch at Bayside offers something for everyone, with a full range of enticing salads, satisfying sandwiches, and more. Indoor dining is offered throughout our upstairs Grill, and our covered patio is a great option for seating that is protected while still benefitting from a little fresh air. On those spectacular days that make Naples the destination that it is, enjoy outdoor seating on our Upper Deck. You may also pull up a seat at our bar, where our bartenders may manage to talk you into a Bloody Mary or Chardonnay to accompany your meal with a view.
Lunch is served daily at Bayside starting at 11:30am, as well as our Sunday brunch starting at 11am.
