Owner/chef Raymond Arpke and wife D’Arcy bought this Longboat Key cottage in 1980 from the original owner, who had named the place for his grandmother. Over the years, the Arpkes have added a separate upstairs room for extravagant desserts and treetop lounge with bar food. And they’ve styled the cottage to maximize its eclectic charm and intimacy. The continental menu celebrates classics such as veal sweetbreads Grenobloise, crisp roasted duck, Key West snapper and Grecian lamb shank. The accomplished service, wine list and ambiance combine with the food to invite guests to appreciate how pleasurable the ritual of relaxed fine dining can be.
