FK your Diet: The Estero eatery with a name that isn’t as it sounds

Lee Herald Favicon 16Doug Miller and Amy Eldridge had a plan for an extended and bountiful vacation when they moved to Southwest Florida.  Both having backgrounds, extensively, in business and sales, have brought them to a strange crossroads in our community.

Opening a restaurant in Estero.

“We wanted to do something we both had a passion for, make amazing food and do some good in the area, in this case donating restaurant proceeds for Foster Kids in Lee County,” Eldridge said.

FK Your Diet is an amazing name, both in innuendo and aesthetics. But it isn’t what you’re thinking.  The FK stands for “foster kids,” which Miller is very familiar with, growing up in multiple foster homes as a child.

A self-described whiz in the kitchen, and with lunch and breakfast dinners to back it up, Miller definitely knows how to bring people in.

Still fresh off of a grand opening at the beginning of October, they have seen little problems with finding regulars, usually two or three times a week.

“It’s amazing that people are already coming in strong, but it’s good to see familiar faces so soon,” Miller said.

A cozy spot in Estero is prime for them, and the paint job on the front doesn’t hurt, it catches the eye even in passing.  What was going to be BurgerQue’s expansion south ended up being a stalled goldmine for the couple.

From personal visits, the menu is made with a lot of love, the breakfast burrito and the burgers being favorites in the office.

With the restaurant helping out with Foster programs in the area, and making donations in kind, it’s good to see this kind of work being done, and it seems to be paying off.  Both with great food and great hearts.
