I'll report back in the appropriate Intrepid Traveler topics.

Heading to Florida and watching Major Baseball League Spring Training is increasingly appealing.

The "Training Triange" is defined by:

* Viera Beach [Nationals] on the Atlantic Space Coast,

* Tampa, Sarasota [Orioles] and

* Ft Myers on the Gulf-side.

Definitely looking for Sunday Brunch on the Space Coast and then non-breakfast meals on the Gulf-Side. We'll probably drive back and forth across Florida on the I-4 and either Rt 520 or 528 corridor.

Early finds:

* Grimaldi's [from under the Brooklyn Bridge] opened a coal oven pizzeria in Ft Myer

* Bern's steakhouse in Tampa has a more casual outpost named "SideBern's"

* Seasons 52 in Tampa is appealing both because of the "good for me" food & the Kensington site is opening soon

More, please.

I cannot vouch for the food, as I haven't eaten there in years, but the Cocoa beach pier will deliver when it comes to atmosphere (open air, on a pier, beach/ocean below). Appears they have a Sunday brunch too. Tried alligator there for the first time, tasted like chicken. I've also attended several Brevard County Manatees games (again a long time ago) at Space Coast Stadium...did not know until this post that's the Nationals spring training facility.
