Dining at Dwight's is always exceptional. It's everything - the food, the ambiance, the service - there is such a good vibe there. We dined on seabass, filet, crab, fresh pasta, and, as always, great wine. That chocolate cake for dessert with the last of our red wine was perfect! Thanks, Dwight and team, for another really fun evening!

My wife and I went for her birthday and we had a wonderful experience. The food was spectacular. The service was even better. It is a small restaurant so it's quite intimate. The problem was it was quite noisy so it's difficult to have a quiet conversation with that being said it was one of the meals I've eaten in a long time. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

About the restaurant
La Nouvelle is the next story in our culinary journey by Michael Lugo. This opportunity to bring French Nouveau cuisine to our city has us so excited. Bringing to the helm Matthieu Landillon from the coastal city of Marseille, La Nouvelle allows us to explore classic French Bistro fare with an elevated edge. The atmosphere will lead you to the streets of Paris without leaving St. Augustine.

Omg-wish I could give a 10 on food- fabulous food…save room for dessert-they are out of this world delicious! Charming and quiet vibe-great service. It’s a bit pricy, and I don’t like that they charged for bread & butter….but it was perfection in every other aspect.

Jacksonville
About the restaurant
13 Gypsies is a cozy, intimate Spanish tapas restaurant. You can also find the influence of other cuisines throughout the menu. Primarily utilizing Spanish techniques to prepare both creative and classic renditions of Spanish dishes, Chef Howard and Chef Kevan operate a true craft kitchen. The two of them prepare and cook most everything from scratch including breads, cured meats, cheeses, sausages, spice blends, pickled vegetables, and desserts. This practice of making nearly everything in house promotes waste-free cooking and higher quality food. Our wines are mainly from Spain, and our beer is Florida local. We are located in a two-story Spanish-style building built in 1923 by Henrietta Dozier, Jacksonville's only female architect in the early part of the 20th century. You will find eclectic, maximalist religious iconography adorning the walls and original floor tile. We have few tables, so reservations are highly recommended. Last seating is an hour and a half before closing time.

The food is delicious and very creative. Last night I had a pasta dish that was made completely in-house and it was fantastic. The pasta was unique and perfectly cooked and the ragu sauce was among the very best I have ever eaten. 13 Gypsies is a little gem and a culinary treasure in Jacksonville.

Medure is one of favorites for special occasions especially. We have dined there for the past 5 or 6 anniversaries and around New Years. It is always good. Service is excellent.
