Culinary Concepts Restaurants Reopening in Naples

Culinary Concepts' two legendary 5th Avenue South restaurants Chops City Grill/Naples and Pazzo! Cucina Italiana will remain closed until further notice, assessing damage, cleaning up and remodeling.

The Saloon American Bistro in Estero (Coconut Point Shopping Center) is expected to reopen pending final A/C equipment verification. Will update as soon as confirmed.

Yabba Island Grill on 5th Avenue South in Naples reopens on October 5 at 5 p.m. with both indoor and outdoor dining. Diners can still enjoy many of the original Yabba specialties including Rasta Pasta, a 22-year customer favorite from the original menu with shrimp, littleneck clams, mussels and king crab in a white wine, sun dried and fresh tomatoes, hearts of artichoke and sweet basil sauce served atop a light citrus angel hair pasta. 

Chops City Grill/Bonita also reopens on October 5at 5 p.m. with both indoor and outdoor dining. Be sure to save room and treat yourself to an organic apple dessert. It's our most popular dessert. Hand-cut organic Granny Smith apples are tossed with a sugar syrup of apple sauce, cinnamon and nutmeg then baked in an individual pie crust until golden brown then drizzled with a bourbon-walnut caramel sauce. Apples are topped with house made cinnamon gelato, whipped cream, chocolate stick, dehydrated apple slice and fresh mint sprig.
