On June 7, Casa Ybel Resort’s historic Thistle Lodge Beachfront Restaurant and Coconuts Poolside Bar and Grill were featured on Fox 4's Morning Blend.
Debuting Thistle Lodge's “Summer Fare” menu, Executive Chef John Wolff demonstrated his Thai Rice Thick Noodle Salad with chicken while Coconuts bartender, Lea, explained about the most popular drink on the beach – the Casarita, which is a margarita with half the calories. Lea then prepared a refreshing Lime Mojito for Morning Blend host, Bill Wood.
Thistle Lodge, long recognized as one of Sanibel Island’s most romantic restaurants, is also a wonderful spot for family dining and offers both indoor and al fresco dining. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily and offers a delicious Sunday brunch.
