FORT MYERS, Fla. – Dixie Fish Company was featured in the fifth season of “Florida’s Table,” a custom video series by VISIT FLORIDA and Emergent Media that promotes Florida’s dynamic culinary scene. The “Florida’s Table” series is notable for its chef-focused storytelling and this newest season tells the story of Southwest Florida cuisine.
In the video, Dixie Fish Company Chef Chas Tatigian shared the iconic restaurant’s origin story as an original Florida fishhouse. Originally built in 1937, the restaurant became known as one of the best places around to buy and sell the day’s catch. Still standing today, despite many hurricanes that have passed through over 86 years, the restaurant is beloved by locals and visitors alike.
“The appeal of eating fresh is very important to us,” said Chef Tatigian. “The local freshness of our seafood just sells itself.”
