Welcome to Amelia Island, Florida. When you travel all the time like I do it is very easy to get frustrated with food that does not live up to Manhattan standards and that is pretty much everything. This can also lead to one of the best phenomenons of traveling and that is finding a little of the beaten path joint that you don't expect. Non-New York Italian food can't live up in a side by side taste comparison so when you find a little place that exceeds expectation it is a welcome surprise. Gourmet Gourmet did that for me. I needed a little pasta dish and the Penne with Sausage and Broccolini hit the spot for me. In fact I loved it and went back again the next night and had it again. I don't even like cream sauce. Never have. I choose tomato sauce every time, but I went out on a limb for this one and was very happy with the dish. If I'm ever back on Amelia Island I will be stopping in. If I were forced to complain about one thing it would be how ridiculous the name is . Isn't one Gourmet enough? Fortunately I don't have to complain so I like this little place just the way it is.
