Florida Trend Restaurant Editor • Chris Sherman

Florida Trend restaurant editor Chris Sherman stuck his finger into Key lime pie 20 years ago. He has eaten his way up down and across Florida, tucking into grits, datil peppers, and medianoche sandwiches as well as the dishes of our grandest chefs, young and old. Florida sets a big and constantly changing table, so when you find a great new restaurant or have a grand meal, let Chris know. Ditto for those dinners that don't match the hype. He can't be everywhere... although he'd like to be. Share your thoughts with Chris.

Introducing the Hyper-Sub in Lake Butler, Florida

Against the backdrop of a bright blue sky and a calm lake, the Hyper-Sub roars to life. The sleek, black vessel hums loudly from its docked position at the Lake Side Park Boat Ramp in Lake Butler, Florida. But this boat attracts crowds of adults and children because it looks like a submarine.
