6 More New Restaurants in Jax You Must Try

Lately it seems a new restaurant is popping up almost every week here in the River City. It's one of the perks of my job to keep up with these new additions. Currently new restaurants are opening at such a rapid rate, I can barely give them all a taste before reporting on them. I consider that a great problem…


Azurea’s Adventurous Palate Review

Just in time for their new spring menu release, I was recently invited to taste The Chef's Adventurous Palate at One Ocean Resort's restaurant, Azurea.
