Restaurant Tip Florida: Katch Twenty Two – A small gourmet temple in Inverness / Crystal River

Richard Wiggins’s personal dream of owning a restaurant comes alive here in Lecanto. After experiencing some of the best restaurants in the Southeastern United States, he ventured into a culinary diaspora.
The small restaurant’s location was – until the retirement of the owners – home of the „Rusty Duck“, a special culinary spot frequented by locals. I did not share that view: the ambience was stale – rather “rusty” – and well past it’s prime. The food was mediocre, though overpriced. Nonetheless, locals loved to dine here.

Culinary delicacies in Inverness Florida The new owner has thoroughly modernized and „cleansed“ the premises, from the sanitary facilities to the guest rooms. Here the visitor meets a rather cool design, which has a soothing effect, since it does not distract from the food. The menu is terse – only one page – but leaves nothing to desire.
Creative appetizers, well composed main dishes (dominated by local fish, but there are also great beef selections as well as lamb from New Zealand).

Friendly ambience

The short, but fine wine list (California, New Zealand, Germany, Italy) bears witness to a high degree of wine knowledge.

Tip: As a starter, the homemade Lobster & Scallop Ravioli ($12) or Crudo (fish of the day from the local waters with lemons marinated vegetables and avocado, $9). As main dish, the grilled grouper on spinach or the local snapper with scrumptious celery puree / $27 and $26, respecively)

 


The service was very dedicated, attentive, knowledgeable, and able to answer our questions precisely. The size of the portions was adequate: The exquisite ingredients make excess quantity to take home in a doggy bag superfluous. The price level for main dishes is between $19-$32, appetizers  $8-$12, a glass of wine $6-$12.
