Florida Work, Fun and Food

I spent last week in Florida, seeing the new Global Traveler office, catching up with the GT team and meeting new members, assisting at the Global Business Travel Association convention and enjoying fantastic food and beverages.Global Traveler

After meeting Publisher & CEO Francis X. Gallagher at the airport, we dined at Rosebud’s in Osprey. The shrimp and scallop risotto was perfectly prepared. The rice was creamy and the seafood plump, juicy and fresh. I finished with an excellent cannoli.risotto cannoli

After the first day of the convention, the GT team dined at Charley’s Steak House. The whole wood-grilled snapper with pineapple mango salsa looked artistic and tasted fantastic. An appetizer of cedar plank cauliflower was huge.snapper

Near the Orange County Convention Center, Harry’s Poolside Bar and Grill was a fun restaurant. The Jamaican jerk turkey burger with grilled pineapple and orange chili sauce was layered with flavors. The yucca fries had a crisp outside and soft inside.

Upon our return to Osprey, Fran and I relaxed at Casey Key Fish House. I had been craving crab cakes the entire trip, and I got great ones here. A frozen strawberry margarita was a refreshing accompaniment.

On the last night, Fran grilled a fresh tuna steak and portobello mushrooms. Grill master Fran gave it a nice char on the outside, while keeping the inside pink and tender.

The food was awesome, but the best part of the trip was being with the other GT staffers. It’s a great bunch, and I am proud to be part of the team.
