James’ Beard award winning chef Brian Whittington opened Preserved with one thing in mind – providing the freshest, most sustainable and locally procured southern food in a charming and historic setting. Tucked into historic Lincolnville in the fully restored Jefferson House, the chefs showcase the fruits of the area’s local farmers, butchers, and ranchers in dishes that take their cue from the local heritage and flavors.
Located on one of St. Augustine’s oldest streets and housed in an authentic Second Spanish Period (1784-1821) home, La Pentola offers up seafood, wild game, inventive pastas, and a killer dessert menu. A native of Guadalajara, Mexico, chef and owner Jorge Talavera presents a spectacular array of dishes in the Mediterranean and Latin persuasion.
