Izzy's Fish & Oyster opens in downtown Fort Myers

Acclaimed chef and restaurateur Jamie DeRosa, in partnership with Kearns Restaurant Group & Richter Hospitality Concepts, has announced the opening of Miami Beach-based Izzy's Fish & Oyster in Fort Myers. Located on the brick-lined, First Street in the city's historic downtown, Izzy's Fish & Oyster is a family-owned and operated business named after DeRosa's first born, Isabela "Izzy" Grace.

The restaurant's scheduled opening was Wednesday, June 7.

DeRosa's background includes mentorships from culinary majors Wolfgang Puck, Norman Van Aken and Food Network's Geoffrey Zakarian. At Izzy's, DeRosa takes his classical teachings and applies them to seemingly simple menu items where ingredients are the star. Menu items include warm and cold versions of the classic Maine lobster roll, Ipswich clam belly roll, crispy fried chicken, filet of fish sandwich and a Florida's very own Fort McCoy Farm Burger with cave-aged Gruyre cheese on a Martin's potato roll.

A few of Izzy's signatures are Izzy's New England Clam Chowda', Point Judith Squid Fried Calamari and a riff on the Classic New England Clam Bake.

With a combined 200-seats available both indoor and outdoor - Izzy's Fort Myers offers the best of Miami Beach with exclusive additions.

Izzy's Fish & Oyster Fort Myers is located at 2282 First St. and is open Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
