Great restaurant review suggestions often come from loyal readers so excited about a restaurant discovery that they write to me to share details of their dining experience.

This was the case with Bowls, the new baby blue restaurant located among the businesses right in the heart of Sebastian on US Highway 1. A large sign simply announces: “Bowls Fast Fine Food.”

Chef Travis Beckett, who has earned his prominent culinary reputation locally at Wild Thyme Catering in Vero Beach and through his participation in Indian River County fundraisers, is visible in the kitchen working hard to satisfy the cravings of diners. hungry customers, whether they choose to eat in or take out. Those who dine at home are calm and delighted with the continuation of the ‘azure blue’ theme in the interior of the restaurant, where an immaculate white tree seems to sprout from a table and a pillow, soft white clouds smile from the ceiling. The ceiling TV is set in a quiet forest.

There is ample seating at the bar, at the front of the tables by the windows of the house and on the high ceilings at the rear of the restaurant. The menus, one placed at each location, are in the lovely shape of bowls. Parking is available and easily accessible.

But it’s all about the food, right? With three in our lunch party, we tried three very different bowls. In each, the flavors were perfect, the presentation quite attractive, and the quantity very satisfying.

Most lunch bowls are offered with a choice of chicken, steak, or tofu.

A grilled marinated chicken breast was our pick for the lively and fresh Fiesta Bowl, which consists of Spanish-style rice, three types of beans, sweet corn, avocado, and jalapeños.  Everything was dressed with Fresca de la casa, chimichurri, coriander and avocado dressing.  An ear of street corn and sweet plains topped this brightly flavored bowl.

The warmest and most comforting dish might be veal bourguignon.  A tender piece of meat is cooked with carrots, mushrooms, garlic, bacon, thyme, and fresh parsley to create a tempting sauce.  It is served over mashed potatoes with a slice of grilled bread on the side.

Our resident veggie enjoyed miso ramen made with soy-based broth and grilled tofu, matchstick carrots, bean sprouts, sweet corn, scallions, and baby bok choy.

Healthy breakfast bowls are also on offer along with interesting side dishes, desserts, and smoothies. Local beer sells for $ 6, and the menu includes fountain drinks, coffee, and tea.
