A Fabulous Lunch at St. Augustine, Florida's Ice Plant

If you travel to St. Augustine, Florida and want to try something 
different at mealtime, head to the Ice Plant at 110 Riberia Street. 
Trust me when I tell you that it's a must on your to-do list!
This farm to table restaurant serves local seafood and grass-fed beef that's superb. 
In addition, the atmosphere and ambiance knock the ball way outta the park!
Like me, you're most likely tired of the same-old, same-old eatery.
This place provides a unique experience you'll long remember.

Upon walking through the doors, we were swept back to another era.
Carefully curated decor and accessories gave a vintage, industrial vibe.

The architecture is exceptional with soaring ceilings!

The restaurant's name, of course, is from the building's original use as an ice plant.
 It was built in1927 with a railway running right up to it
 to provide ice for the boats of the local shrimping industry.
Renovations hold tight to its period of origin, actually lending it
a feel of the Prohibition era, which took place from 1920 to 1933.

Gazing overhead, we saw the original bridge crane
 that was used to pick up the enormous blocks of ice.

Two bars, back-to-back, serve house-made syrups and hand-squeezed juices
in their interesting selection of artisan cocktails.

Potato Leek Soup for starters.

Grilled Ricotta Cheese On Sourdough with
Roasted Pear, Fig Jam, Hazelnuts, Arugula

St. Augustine Shrimp & Anson Mills Grits
