Dexter’s in Colonial TownPark – Lake Mary, Florida
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ve already figured out that I love to eat. If this is your first time here, you’re going to figure out pretty quickly that I enjoy great food [and spend a lot of time in the gym working it off]. Dexter’s is one of my favorites in Colonial TownPark in Lake Mary, just north of Heathrow off International Parkway. Dexter’s is part bar/part restaurant, with an eclectic menu that ranges from low country southern dishes, Asian inspired wasabi tuna burgers to fabulous pasta dishes and the best Bloody Mary in Lake Mary with a skewered shrimp, peperoncini and blue cheese stuffed olive.
My favorite pasta dish is the “Shells and Cheese”, pictured with shrimp. The creamy parmesan cheese sauce with peas and sun dried tomatoes is my first choice when I’m looking for comfort food.
My other favorite “go to” dish at Dexter’s is the Crab Cakes with field greens… DELICIOUS! The lump crab cakes are complimented by the corn salsa and tomato relish, it’s a light, but satisfying dish and goes really well with the Bloody Mary for brunch.
