SoWal Restaurants Coming Alive!

February 29, 2012 by Susan Benton

There is so much activity this time of year - remodeling, re-opening, new restaurants, new staff! 

Local Catch Bar & Grill had their "soft" opening yesterday. I am hearing a lot of good food news! They are located in Santa Rosa Beach at the old Salty Dog Location.

We are so very excited about the March 15 opening of Edward's Fine Food & Wine in Rosemary Beach in the old Courtyard location. Chef Edward Reece is so very talented and his food style is fresh and clean! Check out his wife Erin's blog to get in on the detailed action and hard work behind the scenes!

Mark your calendars! This Thursday March 1, 2012 George's at Alys Beach and La Cocina in Seacrest will be open for business! The following Thursday March 8, 2012 Caliza will open. Need your fix now? Head to the Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc. fundraiser this weekend in Alys Beach - the inaugural 30A Wine Festival. Fabulous food, spirits, wine and music will tantalize you! 

Kevin Moran has joined Harbor Restaurant Group as a managing partner of Crush, a favorite hangout on the square in Seaside. He was previously the general manager of Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood located at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, and is one of the regions only certified sommeliers.

Moran says,“We will have an opportunity to teach and expose our guests to incredible wine and food with a team of wine enthusiasts to guide you along the way. Come Drink, Eat and Discover!”

Yet another opening this week is the highly anticipated debut of 723 Whiskey Bravo, a modern, white building in the heart of Seagrove on the old Wheelhouse location.
