Ponte Vedra Beach is home to TPC Sawgrass which is home to The Players Championship which is arguably the largest international golf competition in the world.

New for the 2016 Players is a big bold international sandwich shop—Flavor Palette—to go along with the international theme for not just one week but the entire year! Applause local residents! Here is a new restaurant that is Top 10 for sure, way above Bogey’s Grille in appealing to our adventurous international palettes and not too far below Ruth’s Chris Steak House n delivering the big bold international flavors we desire.

Tip of the cap to the nongolfer Tommy McDonough and his wife Jamie who have been open just over a month. Tommy will be there ready to serve you during Players week and throughout the year, not on the golf course like the rest of us golf nuts.

I love the logo line of “create your sandwich masterpeice.” This isn’t Kramer’s make-your-own pizza idea on Seinfeld rather you pick the bread, the protein, the hot topping and the cheese. Plus their is a variety of wine and beer. Plus there are healthy from the garden. Be an artist with a palette of international flavors to create your own sandwich masterpiece!

 

The best Philly Cheese Steak ever!

The best Philly Cheese Steak ever!

Knowing Tommy was from Philly I, of course, indulged in the Philly Cheese Steak which quite frankly was better than what I had in Philly at Tiger’s tournament at Aronimink. Hoagie roll with philly steak, mushrooms and onions and melted cheddar cheese. I had to try the Snappy Mac, named after his beloved dog, which is a burger with sundried cherry relish, bacon, crumbled blue cheese and arugula on French Pantry Brioche. I think I hear April Ann coming back from Newport Beach to check out this new tasty eatery—the Flavor Palette!

And don’t forget the gelato, the Tiramisu is in Ponte Vedra Beach, but out of this world with its big bold international flavor!

From the Garden menu too!

Snappy Mac!
