We've walked past Kelly's dozens of times while downtown in Dunedin. Finally, today, we ventured inside and had a very enjoyable lunch. Market day is hectic, so we had a short wait, but we were greeted promptly and, after being seated, were left in the hands of our attentive waiter, Bob.
Soup of the day was cajun chicken and black eyed peas, which proved to be a rich concoction of beans and broth. We had three orders of the Chili Lime Chicken, a zesty combination of citrus and pepper. Add to that one Spinach and Arugula Salad, made with almonds, dried cranberries, gorgonzola and yellow cherry tomatoes, served with a fantastic warm bacon apple cider vinaigrette dressing. And I personally recommend the Mufaletta, a spicy combination of pepperoni, capicola and salami with two cheeses and a tasty olive tapenade.
I’ll end by adding that their iced tea is some of the best I’ve had outside of my own kitchen, and Bob was very good about keeping our glasses filled, while others made sure that our plates were removed from the table as soon as we finished with them.
We finished our meal with Kelly's own recipe white chocolate pecan pie, and key lime pie. Both made a perfect ending. We ate inside, as the weather was very warm, but I'm looking forward to sampling some of their dinner entrées on the back patio.
