It isn’t often that we venture beyond our usual 30A / South Walton / Destin stomping grounds for dinner, but a special occasion and a mouth-watering menu for two is enough to send us all the way to Panama City. I have to give Hunter full credit for this find, as he discovered the talented Chef Chris on Instagram, became a fan and surprised me with these ready-made plans for Valentine’s Day. It was a perfect evening full of romance, good food and great company.
While we waited for our table, we started with drinks at the bar. I love a fun martini, especially on special occasions.
I decided on the Grapefruit Martini which was so light and delicious.
Since we were there for Valentine’s Day, there was a set menu for the evening instead of the usual full menu. We chose a dish for a starter, soup or salad, entree and dessert.
We started with a delicious shrimp cocktail.
I chose a Foley’s Salad with Arcadian Greens, Candied Pecans, Grape Tomatoes, Feta and White Balsamic.
For our entrees, I went with the Pan Seared Grouper with Red Bliss Potatoes, Brown Sugar Bacon, Green Tomato Charon and Asparagus…
… and Hunter chose Filet Mignon with Red Bliss Potatoes, Garlic Spinach, Crispy Onions and Béarnaise.
There’s my handsome date!
We paused just long enough to snap this pic before devouring every bite.
We finished off the meal with a rich chocolate cake. Needless to say, not a single scrap was left behind.
Thanks, Chef Chris! Every bite was delicious!
