bay cafe- fort walton beach, florida

Bay Cafe

Right on the water, under the Brooks Bridge, Bay Cafe.  Impeccable service, freshest of seafood, homemade desserts (French Silk Pie-Oh My!) and mouthwatering nightly specials.  The appetizer Crab Cakes and Sea Bass Picatta on this visit were beyond compare.  Superior wine choices.  Inside or outside on the water.  Divine.

yuyo peruano- austin, texas

YuYo Austin

New eateries opening in Austin every day, especially in the fast growing east side.  Just north of downtown, YuYo is one to experience.  Reservations are a must, Happy Hour is exceptional, the Rose Sangria will cure a crave and the ceviche so fresh.  You’ll need more than one serving of fried plantains and do not pass on the Palta Criolla.  When in Austin, do Peru.
