19th Hole – Vero Beach, FL

This venue also features a full-service restaurant with ample outdoor (and indoor) seating, along with two well-stocked bars, one inside and the famous outdoor Patio bar.

Armani’s Italian Market – Vero Beach, FL

The owners of this market also operate Armani’s Cucina in the same plaza, which earned the prestigious Treasure Coast Foodies Golden Fork Awards for Restaurant of the Year in 2022. With such accolades, our expectations for the market’s offerings are undoubtedly high. During my visit, I had the pleasure of trying their delectable Armani’s Italian and Prosciutto sandwiches. The bread, flown in from New York, was a perfect complement to the Boar’s Head cold cuts and specialty products that adorned the sandwiches. The market offers a wide variety of products, including pre-packaged items and freshly prepared delights. With such attention to detail and quality, Armani’s Italian Market is poised to become a go-to destination for Italian culinary treasures in Indian River County.

Waterfall Restaurant – Vero Beach, FL

Our final destination is none other than Waterfall Restaurant, situated in the heart of Downtown Vero on 14th Ave, in the charming space that was once the Blue Star Brasserie restaurant. Waterfall, a family-owned establishment, recently opened its doors just a little over three months ago. The owners, who have dedicated their lives to working in restaurants, have now taken the exciting leap of becoming owners themselves and running their own establishment. The initial response has been promising, with business flourishing in these early months. With their wealth of experience and passion for the industry, the owners of Waterfall are sure to create a memorable dining experience that reflects their dedication and love for the restaurant business.
