Borago has been one of the most loved establishments in South Walton since 1999. When they lost their Grayton Beach location to fire, locals rallied to show their appreciation and, most importantly, their loyalty.
Luckily, the outpouring of community support paid off. Borago reopened in a new permanent location at 3-Thirty-1 that many loyal customers have come to love as much as the old. And who could blame them? With Choctawhatchee Bay just steps from the deck, falling in love again is easy. But rest assured, some things never change.
At Borago, you will still enjoy hearty and robust Italian food in the trattoria tradition made by owner chefs while sipping on expertly made cocktails. Borago is known for their signature drinks, making it a local hotspot where you’re bound to run into old friends. Bartenders squeeze fresh juice daily and you can truly taste the care that is put into making each cocktail.
That same care extends to Borago’s dinner menu, which delivers an authentic take on traditional Italian cooking. Keep things simple for starters with Tomato Bisque, house made Focaccia and Arugula Salad with gorgonzola cheese and toasted walnuts. Or kick things up a bit with pan seared scallops with soft cheese polenta and roasted tomato butter sauce.
Traditional pasta dishes showcase the addictive Three Meat Bolognese with cheese tortellini, and penne with hot Italian sausage, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, portabella mushrooms and herbed goat cheese.
Grouper Nicoise blends influence from the Gulf while keeping it traditional with artichokes, Kalamata olives, tomatoes, haricot verts, whipped potatoes and a white wine butter. While roasted eggplant lasagna offers a nod to veggie lovers.
Borago is a classic trattoria with a contemporary flair serving homemade food that is the heart and soul of Italian cooking. Their permanent new home is located on the shores of Choctawhatchee Bay at 3-Thirty-1, at the foot of the Hwy. 331 bridge. Borago is open daily for dinner, and reservations are recommended. Call the same phone number at 850-231-9167 to reserve a table. Follow Borago on Facebook for news, food photos and updates.
