Twilight cafe grand opening
to benefit purre

October 28, 2008

Dear PURRE Members and Friends:

From Saturday, November 1, through Saturday, November 8, you can enjoy a fantastic meal on Sanibel and help restore our rivers and estuaries at the same time! 

After a two-year absence, local chef and restaurateur Robert Parks, one of the original members of PURRE, is proud to be returning to Sanibel and re-opening his popular and award-winning Twilight Café at 2761 West Gulf Drive, former location of the Nutmeg House and Riviera restaurants.

Robert will be donating 5% of his "Grand Opening Week" proceeds to PURRE. He said, " Now that I'm back, I'm looking forward to reconnecting with PURRE and its members."

Grand Opening Week runs from November 1 through 8, although the restaurant opened, Monday, October 27 (see hours below).

The Twilight Café re-incarnation will offer breakfast and lunch during season and a year-round dinner menu with plenty of familiar favorites (including its world-famous broccoli) as well as tasty new creations. Patrons can start their day with biscuits and gravy or a savory omelet, tuck into a delicious soup and large salad for lunch; and for dinner, choose from a large entrée selection ranging from pan-seared duck breast and beef medallions to Asian pineapple stir-fry and grilled grouper.

Beginning Monday October 27, Twilight Café will be open for dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, and the Grand Opening Celebration from which PURRE will benefit will take place the week of Saturday, November 1, through Saturday, November 8.

Robert plans to offer breakfast and lunch daily just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Hours of operation:
Dinner: Monday – Sunday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Breakfast and Lunch: Monday – Sunday 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas
