6 Impressive Restaurants Opening DowntownNovember 16, 2015 21 comments Print Article
Downtown Jacksonville is in the midst of a culinary boom. Here's six impressive restaurants that will be opening over the next few months.
6. Sbraga & Company
Sbraga & Company is another one of the restaurants joining the “trio” at 220 Riverside. This restaurant will be under the careful care of “Top Chef” winner Kevin Sbraga, who owns several restaurants around the Philadelphia area. This will be Sbraga’s first Florida eatery, but not his first time in Florida. Sbraga is a University of Miami graduate, and his grandmother was actually born right here, in the River City.
Sbraga has one major goal with the creation of his menu—to bring the focus back on crops. Sbraga & Company is a southern-inspired, but Sbraga doesn’t want people to simplify the idea to “soul food.” Instead, he has dedicated nearly 50% of the menu to crops and grains. There will be fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs used in all dishes and drinks, a wood fire grill to cook up meat off the hearth, house-made breads, and a raw bar. Versatility in the menu will also allow Sbraga to illustrate modern American culinary techniques.
This is Sbraga & Company's first week of business.
