A Night Out at Eighteen East Restaurant Review by Cindy Sebring Adams

If

you’re looking for a place where you can eat a great dinner and live entertainment, Eighteen East is the place for you. Located in Downtown Avon Park, owner and chef David Ailstock has created a dining establishment that makes you feel welcome and right at home from the moment you walk in the door. David’s vivacious personality warms the atmosphere which matches the warm venue and décor. Known for having “The Best Steak in Town”, they’re menu also offers a variety of sandwiches, salads and a nightly special, usually featuring fresh seafood. On the night my friends Nancy Redding, Teri Leavengood and myself visited Eighteen East, David prepared a sample of his menu items for us to taste and share. The special that evening was Bone In Pork Chop atop Apple Cider Cole Slaw with Mac & Cheese & Green Beans as well as a Blackened Redfish with Everglades “Cactus Dust”, Fresh Asparagus with Hollandaise and Mashed Red Potatoes. For Appetizer we had the Bib Lettuce Wrapped Mahi Tacos with an Avocado Cilantro Slaw and fresh Tomatoes from local McCracken Farms. This was a fresh starter with perfectly prepared Mahi on top of bright slaw with

David Ailstock and Stephanie Dressel.
