SUMMER AIN’T OVER: SEAWELL LAUNCHES DEEP BLUE DEBUT AT MINNOW BAR
Minnow Bar, the recently opened clear spirits cocktail den, launches its weekend Deep Blue Debut, a unique and savory lite bites menu from the upcoming Seawell Fish n’ Oyster. Developed by Seawell’s executive chef Julian Garriga, Deep Blue Debut is a preview of the upcoming coastal American seafare restaurant and a great compliment to the gin house’s herb-infused craft cocktail menu. Available on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30AM to 4PM, Deep Blue Debut features some of Garriga’s soon-to-be favorites such as $1 coast to coast oysters, Seawell’s signature lobster roll served with choice of melted butter or mayonnaise and chips, smoked local catch fish dip with house pickles and saltines and the decadent muffuletta on a sesamo bun with salumi, provolone and giardiniera. Minnow Bar’s unique clear spirits menu is available during Deep Blue Debut including favorites such as Sea Level, Hey Roxy and Rey Mambo. With over a decade of South Florida culinary expertise, executive chef Julian Garriga will lead the culinary program at Seawell Fish n’ Oyster with his energetic approach in the kitchen and his appreciation for local flavors. Chef Garriga’s menu will highlight tried-and-true classics alongside entrée selections that play with finfish, shellfish and non-seafood items, offering a broad range of flavors that will appeal to all palates.
A complete reimagining of the former 660 at Angler’s, Seawell Fish n’ Oyster will debut in late fall 2018, serving coastal fare through raw bar, fresh fish and shellfish selections. Balancing between rustic and refined, Seawell will exude sophistication in a relaxed, nautical-designed dining room
