As Ybor City's open-air Clementine Café finalizes the menu for its January opening, owners Brian and Misty Sommers shared a few highlights with CL.
With grass-fed beef and poultry, along with organic produce, the offerings — cooked up by Brian inside an old-school Airstream trailer — will have a clean eats vein. But the simple yet elevated dishes fall under what one might classify as "porch grub," comfort food diners could see themselves chowing on at home with loved ones.
Clementine's signature semi-boneless "Organic Clementine Chicken," which boasts an orange juice brine, will be served with white or dark meat and yucca fries. It'll function as the base for the joint's other poultry-inflected dishes.
There will also be a trio of tacos (pork carnitas, pulled chicken and gulf shrimp), as well as the open-faced Naked Burger, with Plant City Ugly tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and house-made bacon.
