Two weeks after my gastric bypass I decided to use Tommy’s to test the promise of the doctor that my abbreviated stomach would handle one of my favorite drinks, a Mojito. It did; more than one in fact. Now six years later, 220 pounds lighter, and a veteran of many, many visits to Tommy’s on 3rd in Naples I write this brief kudos.
Last night I dropped by before going to Campiello which was my ultimate goal and is across the street and is the subject of a detail review, instant. I realized I never reviewed this favorite, Tommy Bahamas’. To its credit Tommy’s orthodoxy is intact; is has appeared virtually unchanged over half a decade of my visits. Staff is friendly and unhurried but omnipresent, drinks are perfect and generous and the bar tender easily adjusts for your taste. An extra-dirty martini for my sweetness-n-light was a perfect mix in the glass but was accompanied by an extra shot of olive juice and olives.
During the day brunch is quick as you want it and portioned right. Little sparrows dance expertly across the floor from the patio collecting any bits and crumbs lost or, in some cases, posited just for them. The only downside is that when the Snow-birds migrate (now September through Easter) it does get crowded. I just saunter to the bar, acquire beverage of choice, and stand-about until seated. I am an unhurried people watcher anyway.
Optionally, on both sides of the restaurant and actually under the same roof are tow stores apportioned by sex. Facing the front door, down the hallway to the left, is the Men’s and to the other side, the Lady’s. I find things here never found in the out-of-town stores. Wine glasses with palm tree stems was one of which I got 16.
