Date Night

Friday night date night….love spending time with this guy.Crazy wind (surfers were loving the waves) and hair, but I love our beach.He hates the beach, and I love it. We compromise by going to dinner at the beach and not touching the sand! Ha!  (We took this picture on the Boardwalk–not on the sand.)

I think I have become obsessed with going to Emeril’s Coastal Italian restaurant. David and I went again last night.  The food is incredible, and the service is perfect.  We love Jessica and Laura, as they always make it a perfect evening.  David is obsessed (yes) with the Brussels sprouts.  It is a must have even when he has the meatball flatbread.I am more adventurous with my choices.  I always want to try something different.  Their daily special menu has too many delicious choices and it is always difficult for me to choose what to eat.  I love that they vary the Coastal Board with what is in season.  And, we must always have dessert.  David chose the King’s Cake (with strawberry cream), and my must have—Olive Oil Cake.

Someone asked if we had standing reservations…ha…I would love that.  But, for now, once and a while is perfect.

You must try it if you come to the Emerald Coast!

Emeril’s Coastal Italian

I love Emeril.  Always have.  We loved dinning at Emeril’s Delmonico in Las Vegas.  He now has a restaurant in Miramar Beach – Emeril’s Coastal Italian.

David and I were out in Destin on Saturday, and decided to take a chance and have an early dinner/late lunch.

We had a wonderful time.  Robin and Lindsey were our servers, and they were helpful, and attentive.  David had the smoked fish dip and flatbread meatball pizza, and I had the coastal board with Bluefin Tuna Tartare, Jumbo lump crab salad, and Grouper cerviche.  I also had Emeril’s Chardonnay.

It was wonderful.  We ended with desserts; David had the Chocolate Hazelnut pudding, and I had the Olive Oil cake with salted caramel.

We will have to go only every once and a while, but this will be a go-to place for now on.  Amazing food, service, and prices were very reasonable.
