What's Happening at V Seagrove: New Hours & New Events
December 27, 2012 by SoWal Staff
Hotel Viridian’s private residence club welcomes it’s first members to spend the holidays at the club on the gulf. The Sunrise Residence will accommodate new members for a week serviced by V Seagrove as they toast friends & family, giving thanks and celebrating this holiday season inside the 3,000 sq ft, 5-bedroom private residence.
The existing private beach access and use of the club’s exclusive, Gulf-front courtyard, along with in-room dining service from V Seagrove are just a few of the many luxurious features that will be available throughout the club for its members along with coming future attractions (the 7,000+ sq ft wellness club and exclusive rooftop pool & lounge) to be built in the final phase of construction.
V Seagrove recently expanded dinner hours to begin at 5 pm (instead of 6pm) with an ‘Early Eats’ Reveillon menu from 5-6 pm and added lunches during the week. Their Sunday brunch 11am-2pm features a full brunch & lunch menu, with an extensive variety of choices from appetizers to dessert. The restaurant was a dinner-only venue upon opening nearly two years ago, but now and running through the winter months into the 2013 spring tourist season and beyond you will see lunches offered Wednesday-Saturday, 11:30am – 2pm, in addition to the Sunday brunch.
The brunch menu includes breakfast items including their Banana Pecan Buttermilk Pancakes with Bananas Foster Syrup and the Wagyu Brisket Montellenos with Toasted Tortillas and Tomatillo Salsa Verde, with lunch items from the Gulf Coast Mac N’ Cheese to their signature V Burger. Throughout the week their lunches feature $4 Chalone Wines and the adored Warm Roasted Mushroom Salad, first introduced on the menu opening night and still a house favorite. Visit their website or front entrance for the updated menu, subject to change daily. vseagrove.com
As the first featured amenity of Hotel Viridian, V Seagrove now offers cooking classes led by Executive Chef David Cunningham in a series featured each season; however, guests are invited to attend single classes. The first of three classes in his winter series was held on a Thursday in December specializing on the mother “sauces” with focus on variations of each. The usual format of the class is a full course menu demonstration accompanied by wine pairings with the featured cuisines and enjoying your specialized dinner at V with Chef over open discussion. The next class is scheduled for Thursday, January 24 followed by the final class in this series on Thursday February 7, available by reservation only 850.468.0973 (Limited Seating; $60 per person)
Celebrate New Years Eve with V Seagrove on the deck or indoors with live music from the mysterious and infamous blues brothers during our Blues & Black Ties event December 31, 2012. Call 850.468.0973 to reserve your dinner seating, which begin at 5:00 pm that evening. The doors will be open for all to join and toast the New Year at midnight! Following the NYE festivities on January 1, V Seagrove will offer a Hangover Brunch from 11am – 4 pm prior to closing the doors for two weeks. The restaurant will briefly close after the holidays for their off-season stretch from January 2-15, to reopen in time for the 30A Songwriters Festival on Wednesday, January 16. V will be closed for dinner on Sundays and fully on Mondays & Tuesdays until early March.
Beach Properties of Florida will continue hosting Open Houses in the Sunrise Residence of Hotel Viridian, the club’s first completed Gulf-front residence, throughout the winter (excluding dates when it will be occupied by owners) and by appointment 7 days a week. The sales team wraps up its first year (having just launched the program earlier this spring) with new residence club owners who will continue to enjoy the club in 2013, and welcome additional members as the developers move forward with plans for final construction phases.
