29 South Eats

29 South is located in a re-purposed old Fernandina Beach house in the Historic District, with an organic garden out back. This eclectic bistro can best be described as having creative cuisine with an au naturel twist.

Classic world cuisine with a modern twist prepared with ingredients sourced from local farms and onsite garden. Signature items include Lobster Corn Dogs with Spicy Horseradish Ketchup spiked with Kettle One Vodka, Sweet Tea Brined DelKat Family Farm Pork Chop on Macaroni Gratin with Warm Blackberry Preserves, and Grilled Heart of Romaine Salad with Maytag Blue Vinaigrette with House Cured Applewood Bacon and Toasted Walnuts.

With Chef Schwartz being a member of the Slow Food Movement it is no surprise that 29 South is a proud supporter of the farm to fork concept utilizing produce and cuts from local and regional farmers and ranchers and the procurement of the freshest possible ingredients. Located on site behind the restaurant, a garden provides fresh organic fruits and vegetables seasonally grown. Comprised of fourteen beds, and various potted plants, the garden is always in bloom and visitors are welcome. It is managed by Nan Kavanaugh with the help of the 29 South crew.

Ask for Arnando “Papi” Gonzalez’s Puerto Rican specialty Sancocho, a sumptuous Caribbean meat and vegetable stew that contains plantains, yucca, sweet potatoes, mélanges, pork, corn, cilantro and much more, served over rice and topped with freshly sliced avocado.

Children’s menus always available. Good wine selection. Full Bar.

Arte Pizza

Opened in 2006, Arte Woodfire Pizza & Grill has been perfecting the art of Napoli style pizza since day one. Here at Arte, we meticulously prepare all of our dishes with the freshest, sustainably sourced ingredients. All of our cheeses are of the highest quality and sourced from Wisconsin. Employees tend to our home grown herbs daily to harvest the freshest garlic and herbs for your meal. Juicy, plump, wild-caught Georgia shrimp are featured in our seafood dishes.

When it comes to mastering Napoli wood-fire pizza, the recipe for perfection is in the dough and the wood. Made fresh daily, we only use a special high-gluten flour that gives us the same, consistent base for our pizzas every time. Using only oak wood to bake our pizzas creates a rich, smoky flavor and perfectly crisp crust that first-timers and regulars alike have fallen in love with.

Let Arte cater your next event! We offer all items on our regular menu, as well as an extended catering menu that we can customize for your event! Our dining space is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis- we do not accept reservations. Follow us on social media for daily specials, desserts, and unique events coming to Arte and the surrounding area!

Garden Street Bistro

January 1st 2020, Garden Street Bistro opened its doors serving all day breakfast to a hungry crowed of southern style breakfast seekers. Day One menu included eggs and toast with bacon or sausage, and pancakes along with coffee and juices. Business grew fast, the menu grew, and despite setbacks due to Covid-19, business boomed. The bistro started as single room with both dining and an open kitchen, with a couple of tables outside in our historic courtyard. This single room transformed into what is now our kitchen, with our dining room now located in the historic house on the other side of our courtyard. 

And during the  fourth year of operation, the Pizza Chef finally opened his pizza kitchen in what used to be the original dining room. Now Garden Street Bistro is able to offer our full brunch menu as well as a full pizza and dinner menu, all day everyday. It’s been over five years since we’ve opened our doors and it has been our pleasure to serve the island and it’s amazing visitors every day.
