Just Hatched: Debuts to Peruse
"Pete Blohme, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and a recurring Food Network guest star, is a household name in coastal Alabama, where diners clamor for his signature beignets served with fresh squeezed lemon. In March, the owner of Panini Pete’s opened his first location in Florida. Serving breakfast and lunch, the restaurant specializes in savory pressed sandwiches and burgers dressed with homemade sauces and fresh vegetables and herbs (for those who can resist the powdered sugary goodness of the beignets) in a fast and casual atmosphere that was formerly a Wendy’s. “This is the fastest-growing segment of the restaurant industry,” says Blohme. “We want to be a part of this trend that offers consumers higher-quality food with fewer frozen or processed ingredients than a fast food restaurant.” Guests on-the-go can pick up a “beach box,” packed with a panini, side, beverage and more to enjoy while soaking up the sun. paninipetes.com." -Flamingo Magazine
