Traveling to eat seafood is always exciting. Everywhere you go, whether it’s a landlocked place or surrounded by water, there is a different spin or interpretation of flavors and how it is prepared.

“At Pemrose, we find something ordinary and take our own spin on it, like an everything bagel sushi roll or a tequila-glazed salmon. It’s important for us to know about the quality of our seafood and its background before it hits our cutting board. Having that integrity in your food product makes it easy to be proud of what you are doing.”

“They have huge waterfront windows overlooking the beach. I love the M32 Broiled Oysters with crispy bacon, pecorino cheese, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes. It’s a fun play on Oysters Rockefeller.”

“This is an open concept restaurant right by the marina. You can get off your boat and go in to enjoy fresh oysters. Their Coco Mojito tastes like you’re on vacation and you don’t have a care in the world.”
