The Captain’s Table is featuerd on VisitFlorida.com’s profile of Punta Gorda’s Three Suns Ranch which supplies grass-fed, holistically raised bison, wild hog and cattle to local restaurants. An excerpt follows:
“Florida is naturally famous for its seafood — but locally raised meat like bison from Three Suns can easily fit into the mix, said Todd Volpe, executive chef at The Captain’s Table on Charlotte Harbor, in Punta Gorda.
‘We’re 30 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and 30 minutes from the country, where Three Suns is,’ said Volpe, who came away impressed after visiting the ranch.
The Captain’s Table serves up bison burgers with leeks, bacon, and crumbled blue cheese on its bar menu a few times a week. ‘They usually sell out,’ Volpe said. ‘It’s our number-three selling sandwich, behind lobster grilled cheese and the grouper sandwich.’
The Captain’s Table also features wild hog, marinated Jamaican jerk style along with a dark rum barbecue sauce, Volpe said. He makes sure that any of the meat he buys and prepares from Three Suns still fits into the Asian/Caribbean fusion served at the restaurant.”
