Cress is a most impressive and excellent restaurant where it might be least expected, on a side street in Deland, Florida. The menu contains many choices and all are very tempting. It is a small restaurant, and they may not honor your reservation if you are late, so be sure to be on time - or at least call ahead if you will be late. I had the shrimp and Cress grits, which was very flavorful and had quite large shrimp. My wife had a salad and a crab cake, both from the appetizer menu, and the crab cake was certainly one of the best we have had outside of Maryland, if not the best. When we questioned our waiter about how good the crab cake was when my wife was considering it, he said that he guaranteed it and would pay for it himself if she was not satisfied. Needless to say, his money was safe. The wine list was very good, and we enjoyed an excellent Malbec. Our friends had been at the restaurant before, but it was our first visit, We don't expect it to be our last, by any means.
