Naples in late November/ early December 6 nights help with Restaurant list

driving isnt a problem, there can be traffic but Naples is pretty easy to navigate in my opinion. however, i dont think anything is in walking distance from the naples grande other than water side shops, i suppose you could walk out to 41. i have a house about a mile from you in pelican bay. you are essentially in north naples. i like lurcat and trulucks (esp for stone crabs), both of these are downtown and a 15 minute ride. i am still yet to try inca's but plan on visiting between christmas and new years. ive had both good and bad at Baleen, it is about 5 minutes north of you on the otherside of pelican bay, it is beautiful but my last trip wasnt the best...

i also like turtle club and its in the area.

Awesome, falafal grill has been on my radar since I started this thread...

Also, if there are any intersting food, wine, other events happening around town please post em. I'll be in the area for a week with my gf so we are going to want to get out and enjoy the area as much as possible. Thanks

I'm going to be back in Naples for a week starting on Saturday. Anything interesting going on? I hope to check out some lower key delicious spots, kinda want to shy away from dressed up dinners and the like...

tom, i know its not south beach, my family has had a house in pelican bay since the mid 80's. i really havent been there as an adult though and when i have its been with friends for fishing trips or just grilling and hanging out at the beach. i'm a bit older now and my ideas of vacation have changed, but as much as we'll enjoy eachother's company we kind of wanted to go out a night or two for drinks, we are on vacation...

thanks for the baleen link Littleman, I think we'll head up there for dinner one night. Its close, and the reviews look good. At least maybe we'll do cocktails and apps then move elsewhere for a later dinner...

what are the best places for stone crabs?

how is the dock at creighton cove for drinks / casual dinner?

I'm heading to Naples on 11/18 for a few days with my girlfriend and best friend and his wife. We are all 30 and are looking for some ideas on where to get some great food. We're staying in Pelican Bay in North Naples. I figure we'll have lunch at the turtle club one day sicne its just a stroll up the beach and will probably have lunch at our beaches in pelican bay the other days.

We want to have a few very good dinners while we're there. Friday the 19th is my birthday and I think we're going to try Cafe Lurcat. I have no intention to go to any chain restaurants ie capital grille, roy's etc, although I haven't been to trulucks and would consider trying it out. we are primarily looking for seafood.

What are some places with great food, nice ambiance / setting (like on the water etc) and a younger vibe / crowd?

Also what are some places we should check out for night life?
