The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) has announced the 14 restaurants participating in the 38th Taste of the Islands, to be held from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10 in Sanibel Community Park.

I’m thrilled to say we have an amazing line-up of restaurants this year” says Alison Charney Hussey, Executive Director for CROW. “This is a great opportunity for the community to come together to sample some fantastic food prepared by wonderful chefs, enjoy live music and have a great time with their friends and family. Supporting CROW is an added benefit to a fun-filled Sunday afternoon.”

The restaurants will offer a mouth-watering array of menu items for six CROW Bucks or less while competing for honors in a variety of categories including “Best Appetizer”, “Best Seafood” and “Taste of the Taste”. Attendees of the Taste cast ballots to decide the winner of the coveted “People’s Choice” award.
