FORT MYERS, Fla. (Nov. 2, 2016) – Just in time for the holiday season, the Veranda restaurant in downtown Fort Myers has expanded its private dining options.

The restaurant recently renovated its small dining room located upstairs over the lounge to include leather club chairs, rich finishes and expanded seating for 22.

The Veranda is celebrating 38 years of business in 2016. Consistently honored as one of the most award-winning dining establishments in the area, the restaurant is located at 2122 Second Street in two turn-of-the-century Victorian homes. It features southern regional cuisine with a full bar, extensive wine list and first-class service in a romantic setting.
