Just what the doctor ordered for Downtown’s dining scene! A Peruvian restaurant and ceviche bar with dishes like fiebre alta (high fever) and levantate lazaro (wake up from the dead, LOL) that all include a healthy dose of Vitamin C: lime. Finally, we can actually look forward to a visit to the Dr.

Antoniette Vegan Café
Thanks to a successful run at the WPB GreenMarket and others, this all-vegan and gluten-free bakery has amassed such a devoted, health-conscious cult following that they opened a rather beautiful permanent home — inside the Prado Spa & Salon. The menu features bagels, cinnamon rolls, empanadas, pizza rolls, souffles, cold brew by Pumphouse Coffee Roasters and the pièce de résistance: donuts in flavors like churro, PB&J, chocolate-hazelnut and cotton candy.
Now you can have your gluten-dairy-free cake… and eat it, too!

He brought the membership-based workspace to CityPlace, so if you’re looking for flexible, affordable office space, check them out. www.Venturex.com
