Tim Aten Knows: 60 restaurants launch in Bonita, Estero, Lee in 2022


At least 60 new dining spots opened for business in 2022 in Lee County, including more than two dozen in Bonita Springs and Estero.  

Bonita Springs 

Bonita truly was a hot spot this calendar year with the launch of many notable dining destinations in the city. The owners of the nearby Downtown Coffee and Wine Co. upped their game with the introduction of The Bohemian Restaurant, which led the way in the first quarter of 2022 with its March opening in the new Entrada business center on the corner of Old 41 and Bonita Beach roads. Entrada also saw the February openings of the Rabbit Hole Kava Bar and Lee County’s first location of Naples-based Napoli on the Bay Pizza. 

Vichino’s Cafe & Wine Bar got off to an early start when it opened in mid-January in the Bonita Commons retail center on U.S. 41. It was followed by a trifecta of fresh dining spots that drew more attention to Bonita’s culinary offerings when they opened last summer.
