brings out the best in Destin Dining, a top pick for taste and view
Here’s a sure “top pick” for a¬†scenic restaurant in Destin, Florida
Owner Ed Ward and his hospitable staff warmly¬†invite you in as soon as you begin stepping down the¬†picturesque curved stairwell. 790 on the Gulf is a special restaurant on the beach with upscale feel at very reasonable prices. Ed, being from Louisiana, features a varied menu¬†of Louisiana inspired dishes. Gumbo, gumbo, gumbo… 3 types of gumbo. Crawfish and Shrimp, Duck and Andouille, and Chicken and Sausage, yummmm.
The rest of the menu has so many unique and mouth watering choices it’s hard to know where to begin. You can start with 790 Fried Avocado and Sushi grade Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna or choose from 5 fresh and healthy salads. Our favorite, worth highlighting, The Mediterranean Shrimp Salad with¬†large gulf shrimp, ripe tomatoes, and mushrooms tossed with a homemade olive oil based dressing flavored with fresh garlic, fresh¬†cut basil and oregano and¬†served over a bed of spinach and topped with feta cheese.¬†
The main dishes are listed as “Louisiana Flavors” and “Seafood Specialties” with fresh caught gulf fish such as Grouper and Mahi Mahi. There’s a special menu for the kids and the very generous Happy Hour Menu that offers 13 food choices and over 30+ types of drink specials from wine, champagne, beer, mixed drinks and specialty drinks.
