Happy New Year from all of us at Hurricane Hanks! January is usually the coldest month, or at least one of the coldest months, on Anna Maria Island. That means 60s and sometimes 70s during early January in the daytime and down to the 50s at night. We wouldn’t call it a hellish winter by any means, but it may make you want to fill up your belly a little more than usual.
Certain meals are a real treat when it feels a little colder outside than normal. It’s also a great time for Anna Maria Island’s fishermen to produce some of their better catches for the year. The colder temperatures, cooler breezes and cooler weather push inshore species over near warm water outflows and the mouths of coastal rivers.
Those who head offshore are being rewarded with catches of red and gag grouper, hogfish, mangrove snapper and even amberjack.
As the weather on Anna Maria Island takes a cooler turn in January, it’s the perfect opportunity to savor some heartwarming and comforting dishes. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, our restaurant, Hurricane Hanks, offers a delightful selection of cold-weather meals that will warm your soul and satisfy your cravings.
Craving something crispy and satisfying? Try our Fried Artichoke quarters, panko-breaded and flash-fried to perfection. They’re topped with parmesan cheese and accompanied by a chipotle ranch dipping sauce for an irresistible combination of textures and flavors.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Our Bacon Wrapped Scallops are a delightful combination of large sea scallops wrapped with applewood smoked bacon. Served with our special island sauce, they offer a tantalizing blend of savory and smoky flavors.
New England Clam Chowder
For those seeking a warm, hearty soup on a cool day, Hurricane Hanks’ New England Clam Chowder is the perfect choice. Each cup is brimming with the flavors of the sea, offering a comforting and filling option.
Indulge in a comforting bowl of Bolognese, made with a flavorful blend of beef, pork, and lamb simmered in our house tomato sauce. Served generously over pappardelle pasta, it’s a hearty classic that’s sure to please.
For seafood lovers, our Grouper Piccata is a must-try. Enjoy the delicate flavors of grouper sautéed with lemon, butter, and capers, creating a zesty and savory dish.
