Owsley i would like to reserve a table Saturday night at 20:00, 4 people.
thanks, see you then
This might be my favorite thing I've seen made itt in a while
Recommendations for good dinner spots along 30A? We are staying in Sea Grove. Went to Bud and Alleys last night. Looking at: Vue in 30A, George's, Cafe 30A, The Great Southern Cafe, Borago, The Surfing Deer, and Pescado.
Pescado is good. Vue was pretty good, just very standard white table cloth food, not very interesting.
amici has good italian food but it's up on 98 so you may not want to drive that far. Perfect Pig is more interesting than Vue if you're going to one right in that area.
I had a decent meal at Surfing Deer once not too long ago
Cafe 30a. Go to pescado for a drink on the rooftop then eat at Edwards in Rosemary
Stinkys and Shunk Gulley Are two of my favorites. The Bay is also great but not on 30a. Great views of, you guessed it, the bay though. We were there last week and all have outside seating and all of the staff were wearing masks.
Great Southern is always awesome and not terrible on the wallet.
George’s, 30A, or Pescado. Basmati’s is good too but a little further down the other side of 30A.
Stinky’s is very meh. Good bbq shrimp when they don’t overcook them, but overall it’s not much.
How dare you? The crawfish pie is my favorite thing I eat in Destin.
Sorry bud. We will just have to disagree. I was there last week and stayed across the street, it was very not great.
I was there last week too. To each their own.
Stinky’s is the worst named restaurant I’ve ever heard. I avoid it on principle.
It’s definitely an awful name. I always call it Goofy’s which is is a great place in Honolulu.
Maybe you saw me pull up in the golf cart.
Water was sick though, felt like we were in the Caribbean.
That was you?!
My wife and I have driven over to 30a 4x during Covid. Open salty air is the only thing we do other than stay at home :/
How far away do you live?
Like 2 hours plus depending on where we are going.
Was a million times better as The Lake Place.
We are hitting Sunnyside/Laguna Beach in a few weeks. It’ll be the first time away from home since the 2019 holidays. I am beyond excited.
To keep on thread, I eat Back Beach BBQ for breakfast about 3-4 times when I’m down there. They make legit breakfast tacos.
Did Edwards for apps -baked oysters with lobster butter and the crab cakes then walked to Pescado and had dinner upstairs. Had the foie gras meatballs and seafood fettuccini
Also it really freaked me out that none of the servers had masks on . In this whole restaurant of 200 people not a soul had a mask on. Fucking nuts. We are on a pretty strict regiment in terms of covid back home and we haven't eaten out in months and thought we'd give it a go on vacation. Gave me anxiety.
Welcome to the panhandle. I will say Stinky’s did make everyone mask up.
this is why I don’t eat indoors these days.
we havent even been eating outdoors because it is too damn hot. but yah, for the rest of this trip i may implement an outdoor dining only rule
You ate in a restaurant indoors? Brave.
Did you have a mask on?
i was told its the klanhandle
I can’t inside reading indoors at this point anywhere
Where I am at in the LBC, they require the wait staff to have not only a mask, but a face shield. It would feel weird super weird to walk into any business establishment with a customer facing employee not wearing a mask.
Roasted hatch chiles yesterday and made mac and cheese with them
I made crawfish etouffee.
Owsley is on a heater
Owsley is an absolute beast.
almost make me wants to visit the south
Crawfish étouffée is like a paella, right?
This looks phenomenal. You do anything different from a standard recipe?
Etoufee is a smothering dish served over rice. Thickness is where it sticks to the back of the spoon. Roux based with crawfish fat as the preferred agent. Contains trinity (bell pepper, onion, celery), okra, tomatoes/tomato paste, bay leaf, Cajun seasoning, etc. Often topped with green onion and/or parsley. Honestly, other than containing seafood and rice, it has almost no similarity to paella.
listen friend, i suck at this
you tell me seafood and rice and i automatically think paella.
But I should know it, I did a paella with the brother in law and it was important that the rice was crispy
Same here. So good
Standard. Real simple recipe my grandpa passed down. It’s very good.
I look at your dishes and regret so much that the bes fren doesn’t do seafood / any level of spice
really limits things
Trying to incorporate some vegetarian meals into the rotation. Made eggplant Parmesan last night and it’s probably my favorite non smoked meat meal I’ve made. I had never had eggplant parm before so I’m just
Hoping it tasted how it’s supposed to!
I wish I liked eggplant but I dont.
Looks good , needs fresh basil
There’s fresh basil and thyme in the sauce
