LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!   3 comments

The Sea Watch opened in 1974 and since has become a landmark in South Florida. I have been eating here for over 30 years and the restaurant has recently gone through a major overhaul and while the chairs are not the most comfortable the surroundings are still a part of dining here. It is one of the very few free standing restaurants built on the beach overlooking the ocean and it is a great place to take out-of-towners for the scenery alone, especially during the day, and then taking a walk on the beach.

It is almost a jigsaw of a place seemingly put together without rhyme or reason and as far as I can tell there are 3 different levels all offering views of the beach and ocean.

Being on their mailing list for years I received a $30 gift certificate so Allen and I went there for lunch yesterday. I had Rigatoni made in a San Marzano sauce with mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and Parmigian cheese plus I added shrimp. Allen had the Seared Scallops with roasted red peppers, thyme, coriander and corn relish plus fries. They serve both dark and rye seeded bread and though good I wish it had been warmed up. Our server Patrick was very efficient but as I told him instead of the 22% tip (on what it would have cost) added to the bill I would have made it 25% if he smiled! :O)

Aside from being a place to take guests from out of town for the seafood the landscape adds that extra touch.
