The Best New Restaurant to Open During the Pandemic in Manatee County
It takes a lot of guts and moxie to open a new restaurant during a Pandemic! Well, that’s what Bob Slicker did! Right smack in the heart of the Covid19 Pandemic, Bob opened Slicker’s Eatery in February 2021 in Cortez, Florida. As many of you know, Bob has been around this town for a long, long time and is well known in the restaurant business.
Bob’s decision to open last February wasn’t an easy one. Folks were staying home, not going out to eat and were just plain scared. That did not deter Bob. He did a soft opening last February with all of the sales proceeds going to the Blessing Bags Project. It was an amazing day!
Well, 10 months later and Slicker’s Eatery has become the new “go-to” restaurant. You won’t find a fryer at Slicker’s, nor will you find a freezer! Everything is made fresh. And, oh what a menu! This is not a comfort food restaurant. The menu was put together by Bob’s nephew from California and it is the most unique menu in town. Check at the menu at the website. (note-prices subject to change due to supply issues)
If you are looking for new and different specialty drink, Slicker’s Eatery is the place to go. For more specialty drinks, check out cocktails page on the website.
Slicker’s Eatery is open every day from 12-12! This is a great place to bring your friends and meet new friends. The atmosphere is relaxing, and you will have a great meal and lots of fun.
