By Staff | Oct 18, 2017

The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife has announced the 14 restaurants that will participate in the 36th Taste of the Islands Sunday, Nov. 12, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Sanibel Community Park.

The restaurants include Blue Giraffe, The Bubble Room, The Clam Shack, Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille, IL Cielo, La Bella Vita, Matzaluna, Rosie’s Cafe & Grill, Sanibel Deli, Sanibel Fish House, Sanibel’s Sweet Shoppe, Shima at Sundial, Thistle Lodge and The Timbers.

“We have an amazing line-up of restaurants this year,” said Linda Estep, executive director of CROW. “There will be some very delicious dishes being served.”

The restaurants will offer a mouth-watering array of menu items for six CROW Bucks, or less, while competing for honors in a variety of categories including “Best Appetizer,” “Best Seafood,” and “Taste of the Taste.” Attendees can cast ballots to decide the winner of the coveted “People’s Choice” award.

Admission to Taste of the Islands, which can be purchased online, or at the event, is $7 for adults, and free for children less than 12 years of age.

Bank of the Islands/Edison National Bank has returned as the presenting sponsor of the Taste. This is the eighth year in a row that the bank has led the sponsorship for CROW’s signature fundraiser.
