Fine Dining in Destin
“Where is your favorite place to eat?” This is a popular question from vacationers about restaurants in Destin, Florida. This week, we take a look at three of our favorite fine dining restaurants:¬†
- Bijoux – This elegant restaurant is located at the Market Shops of Sandestin. Described as “coastal cuisine with a New Orleans flair,” our recent visit featured excellent service and delicious food. For appetizers, we sampled crab beignets and an all-time favorite baked brie. Still craving the blackened brie with toasted walnut bread, pickled grapes, and local honey. Everyone enjoyed their entrees which included an outstanding snapper special and grouper almondine. Locals highly recommend drink & dining specials during happy hour.
- Vin’tij Wine Boutique¬†& Bistro – Do not be fooled by the location in a strip mall across from the outlet mall. This little gem, described as “a unique bistro combining a progressive wine program with eclectic cuisine,” never disappoints. Griddled sea scallops are a favorite along with cornmeal pan-fried oysters. Follow the Vintij facebook page for announcements about special wine tasting dinners.
- Beach Walk Cafe – Located at Henderson Beach Inn, this is a wonderful place for a special anniversary or birthday dinner. The excellent wait staff can help me make your meal very special. They even offer unique “Toes in the Sand” VIP dining experience. Your table will be set up and dinner served on the beach. Not sure it gets any better than that!
Next week, we’ll take a look at our favorite casual restaurants. Enjoy!
