Owner Pat Morrissey says Gypsy Cab Company‘s urban ‘cab fare’ (daily menu) is prepared by a creative and innovative culinary team who borrow from Italian, German, Cajun, Mediterranean, classical European, Southern, Oriental and ‘Floribbean’ cuisines. The local Anastasia Island neighborhood establishment has a menu that mostly changes daily, so a recommendation from the wait staff is warmly welcome. Or, select a few mainstay favorites from the menu, like the Gypsy chicken and duck with vegetables.

95 Cordova Restaurant is situated inside the striking Casa Monica Hotel, dressed in lavish antiques, silk textures and hand-painted gold leaf ceilings. The elegant Moroccan design gives a strong nod to the south of Spain. The restaurant offers fine wine and an eclectic mix of international cuisine. Since the opening in 1999, the restaurant has become a St Augustine favorite for romantic dinners, business meetings and other special social occasions. From the menu try the coriander-crusted sea scallops, filet mignon with crab and shrimp ragout, and the savannah style shrimp and grits. Pair the meal with any one of the wines offered from Napa to Spain.
