The newly renovated HB’s on the Gulf, the city of Naples’ only Gulf-front restaurant, has unveiled virtually all-new lunch and dinner menus. The new menus were created by HB’s on the Gulf’s new Chef Justin Hornyak and his team. Located at Southwest Florida’s The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, which recently received the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond rating, the award-winning restaurant completed an impressive renovation and remodeling in November 2013. The restaurant now features a more open design to provide even more stunning views of the Gulf, as well as new windows, new furnishings and carpet, a new terrace floor with locally-sourced Playa Shell pavers, white-washed pecky cypress for the walls, and tropical Ipe wood for the deck and railings. The renovation project at the restaurant also included a new air conditioning system for the restaurant, as well as new ceiling fans, lighting, sound systems, awnings, and shutters.
The just-unveiled dinner menu, which is now available at the restaurant, features such new small plate offerings as: Fried Duck Wontons; Sauteéd Calamari; Diver Scallops; Malpeque Oysters; Little Neck Clams; Prince Edward Island Mussels; and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. New soup and salad options include: Smoked Corn Chowder, Goat Cheese Croquette Salad; Heirloom Tomato Salad, and Roasted Beets Salad. New large plate options on the dinner menu include: Grilled Chicken Piccolini; Seared Yellow Tail Snapper; Shrimp and Grits; Grilled Cobia; Pan-Seared Flounder with Tangerine Couscous; Seared Grouper; and Filet of Beef served with Boursin-stuffed Morel Mushrooms. Side options include Spinach & Goat Cheese Risotto, Grilled Asparagus, and Sautéed Grape Tomatoes. Popular items from the previous menu, such as Seafood Gumbo, Grilled Caesar Salad, Grilled Ribeye, and Grilled Kurobuta Pork Rib Chop, remain on the dinner menu.
HB’s new lunch menu features many of the same new small plate options that are on the new dinner menu, as well as such new large plate options as Pork Belly Sliders; Grouper Tacos; Snapper Sandwich; BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado); Hanger on Sourdough; Bourbon-Glazed Shrimp; Oyster Po Boy; and Vegan Hummus Wrap. HB’s popular Jamaican Pineapple Boat Salad, and Sirloin Burger, both remain from the previous menu.
HB’s on the Gulf is open daily for lunch from 11:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m., and nightly from 5:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. weeknights and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Small plates on the new lunch menu start at $12.50, with large plates starting at $15. Small plates on the new dinner menu start at $12.50, with large plates on the dinner menu ranging from $24-$44.
