EU Jacksonville gives the update on the Jacksonville restaurant scene.

Bonjour, y’all! Candy Apple Cafe has rolled out some new delights this season. Their food, if you haven’t guessed from the greeting I’ve stolen from their press materials, is a fusion of down home Southern American and French. We got a taste at their media dinner. Starters include a well-presented and delicious beef tenderloin tartare, buffalo chicken croquettes for those who like it hot. In salads they’ve got a pretty little wedge, and gruyere for their rich French onion soup. On their brunch menu, don’t miss their version of shrimp & grits. Meat eaters can go for their lush short rib pot-au-feu, while those less inclined to an animal-based meal can go for the savory wild mushroom risotto during dinner. As usual they’ve crafted their cocktails with care. Verdict’s In ($12) is a great choice to drink with your appetizer course. It’s got a bit of a bite to it, with mezcal, pressed lemon juice, blackberry-raspberry puree and housemade jalapeno simple syrup. You can also opt to drink dessert with their Bourbon S’Mores ($12), but don’t expect to be the one driving home if you do!
