Abrazo [Latin Kitchen] in Grayton Beach serves up creative and inspired cuisine from both land and sea with traditional Latin flair. Loyal followers of Abrazo’s sister restaurant, Borago, would expect nothing less.
Abrazo (Sp.): An Embrace
It’s easy to embrace creative cuisine when it comes in the form of glorious Latin food the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Now open in the former Borago location on Scenic 30A in Grayton Beach, the completely renovated space brings an exciting new concept to South Walton dining. Dinner begins at 5 pm, with small plates, soups, salads, entrees and desserts up for grabs. The work of local artist Francisco Adaro, South Walton’s 2015 Artist of the Year, graces the walls at Abrazo for a truly authentic experience.
Alas, the success of a restaurant depends on whether they can dish out great food. For starters, Abrazo gives a nod to Southwest cuisine with Pork Street Tacos topped with a pecan chipotle sauce. A real cowboy steak, wood-grilled ribeye with chimichurri sauce and bolillo bread, is likely one of the finest you’ll find on the coast. Inspiration from the sea manifests as mussels steamed with a green chili purée. And every great meal should be followed by a creamy, fluffy slice of coconut cake, one of life’s happy wonders.
Abrazo Latin Kitchen is located at 80 East Scenic 30A, just east of the Grayton Beach intersection at the former Borago location. They’re open Monday through Saturday for dinner from 5-9 pm.
