It's named Lansdowne Street but located on the Trail
Bonita Springs has a new restaurateur that has thrown their hat in the ring. Just last week Lansdowne Street opened its doors for business. The owner, Michael Maurer, is a die hard Boston fan and the pub shows it.
Yesterday, I finally had a chance to stop into Lansdowne Street with a few friends from work. Our Bonita Springs Keller Williams office actually anchors the other end of the build so we just walked down. First, I have to say that the place is fantastic on the inside. They've really outdone themselves designing the place. There is not another pub or restaurant in Bonita Springs or Estero that looks anything like it. It's very welcoming and comfortable. Second, if you've been hanging at restaurants or pubs at Coconut Point, you owe yourself just to see a little character and not pay for Coconut Point real estate. Besides, if you support your local businesses and they're support your community and the families that live here.
Being a picky eater that also doesn't eat meat, I can tell you there are plenty of options on the menu for me. There's a great list of Panini sandwiches and a "build a sandwich" option - pick your meat, cheese, toppings, etc. They also serve chowda. I had the Beacon Street Panini with potato salad, in case you're curious.
If you're not familiar with the area Lansdowne Street is located on US 41 - Tamiami Trail just a couple hundred feet south of the Old 41 traffic light, right across the street from Pelican Landing. Lansdowne Street also shares the building with KW and the Paradise Shrimp Company. Ample parking is in the back and Lansdowne Street is accessible from Old 41 and Strike Lane, also.
