Crispy Fish Friday
Another month in the books and another round of Crispy Fish Friday coming up this week! Join us, Friday, May 26, for our monthly trip down memory lane as we revisit an old favorite from Truffles Cafe, Crispy Fish. Twice-fried grouper, served with rice, stir-fried veggies, and an Asian-inspired sauce. Comes with your choice of a Caesar or Artisanal Greens salad to begin.
This special dish does require a little extra TLC in the kitchen so we’d be thrilled if you’d give us a call ahead of time to make your reservation and let us know you’ll be joining us specifically for the Crispy Fish. Give us a call anytime at (239) 262-5500.

Winemakers Visit Ridgway
Ridgway had the great fortune to welcome two very influential winemakers this spring, Brian Talley and Dave Phinney.
Brian joined us on March 20 for a wine tasting, cooking demonstration, recipe tasting, and book signing to celebrate his recent publication, Our California Table. Brian is incredibly well regarded in the industry and claims substantial experience in both winemaking and traditional agriculture, with his family having established Talley Farms in 1948, now a third-generation business. Talley Vineyards, including their Bishop’s Peak label, has long produced some of Sukie’s favorite wines, mainstays on her wine lists. To top it off, Brian is a genuine and talented guy, and we’re thrilled every time he stops through Naples.
On May 1, we were truly fortunate to welcome Dave Phinney for a very exclusive wine dinner. Dave first rose to prominence in the industry with The Prisoner, and has continued to wow connoisseurs through his Orin Swift labels. Guests of this dinner were delighted by a specially designed and executed menu, with Chef Tony overseeing the whole thing from our kitchen on the night of the event, paired with exceptional wines including Mannequin Chardonnay, Machete, Abstract, Papillon, Palermo, and Mercury Head. The noise volume in the room noticeably rose over the course of the evening as the wine and conversation flowed. Dave was gracious enough to speak with attendees, provide interesting context and entertaining stories for the wines poured, and spend time with Sukie, Tony and the team. Dave had not previously been to Naples and we were honored to be selected to host this special evening, and look forward to welcoming back the Orin Swift family in the future.
At this time, wine tastings and dinners at Tony’s Off Third and Ridgway Bar & Grill have concluded for the summer months, but of course be sure to stay tuned in the fall when Sukie announces her line-up for the next season.
Congratulations, Lexie and David!
Many members of the Ridgway, Tony’s Off Third, and Bayside family were in attendance on May 20 to celebrate the wedding of Lexie Ward, Tony’s Off Third’s head pastry chef, and David Verbruggen, Ridgway’s managing partner. We are proud to have played some small role in this match of two people who are so critical to what we do, and who are currently enjoying a well-deserved honeymoon, during which we are confident some excellent food and wine will be featured.
