    I heard a rumor today that George and Ann Hartley, owners of both the Seagrove Market and George's, were working on a Mexican restaurant in Seacrest. I hope it is true.

    "Mexican food" are two of my middle names. George's doing Mex would be a double faint for us.

    I heard this very rumor today. It's supposed to be in the old Seacrest Cafe at the Villages of South Walton next to Rosemary Beach. They hope to be open by June 1st or so. Muy Bueno, Senora Anna.:clap:

    They do Mexican really well, quite nearly as great as the legendary Luna del Mar. Sign me up for a lifetime membership.

    Not quite. If memory serves me right, George was one of the landlords of the building that housed Luna del Mar. Neither he nor Ann had anything to do with the food. The restaurant was a sister of one in Texas - serving Tex-Mex.

    I thought they got the salsa recipe from Luna to use on their mexican nights at the village market?

    It looks like a lot of work is being done in the old Seacrest Cafe. Does anyone know if the Mexican restaurant will open this week? We're leaving for home in Ohio on Sunday morning.

    Luna del Mar hardly set a very high hurdle, IMHO.

    Hartleys' Mex is very tasty, tho was always quite expensive on their Mex nights at the Seagrove Market.

    George and Ann are indeed opening this new restaurant! I can't wait, they have been traveling the country trying new recipes and it sounds like it is going to be fabulous! She stated they want to have the same fresh food they always have at George's! I think they are nuts...but can't wait! :clap::clap::clap:
