At Limewood, you'll always feel like you're on a mini holiday. Their pina coladas are served in a young coconut and they also do this barbecued pineapple mojito that tastes like summer in a glass—when we have them along with the fish tacos, while facing the beach, it’s the best way to spend an afternoon.
