Long weekend exploring Northern Fla. I'm looking for "regional" foods. What do you suggest?
Seafood, Minorcan chowder, Fruits, Southern cookin', etc.
PS: I heard Angelette's Cajun Kitchen in Tallie was good - anyone agree?

    though it is a chain, we really enjoyed this place in St Augustine

      Angelette's is okay.  Not open all the time except for lunch.  Owner was arrested a few weeks back for failing to pay sales taxes.  Service can be spotty.  Brunch on weekends used to be good but dinner service/food wasn't.  
      If in St Augustine, Osteen's or SaltWater Cowboys are good regional places to go.  In JAX proper, try breakfast at Metro Diner on Hendricks Ave or the Fox on St Johns.  In Mayport there's Road food recommended Singleton's Shack.
      In Tallahassee, better local restaurants (not necessarily "regional cooking") are Canopy Roads Cafe for breakfast, the Seineyard Seafood down Woodville Highway, Hopkins Eatery for sandwiches and salads (several locations).  Cypress for Southern oriented more upscale dining.  There are several threads on eating along the Gulf Coast.  Try the various oyster places in Apalachicola or Indian Pass, like Creek Raw Bar or Indian Pass Trading Post.  Killer Seafood or the Fish House in Mexico Beach.

        O'Steen's in St Augustine for sure, you can get seafood, minorcan chowder and southern cooking all at the same place. best fried shrimp around, they have different sides every day. dont waste your time with french fries, try  mac n cheese or field peas. closed sunday and monday, cash only
        In  Jacksonville I usually look for ethnic food, since I can't really get in in St Aug. I haven't been, but Beach Road Chicken dinners sounds like a place for you-fried chicken, slaw, cream peas and biscuit and gravy .
