Dinner at the Shore

By David Kaufman

Nothing better represents the pleasures of a beach-front vacation than dining by the sea. And this Spring, Acqualina delivers an even more diverse – and delicious – array of world-class options.  Each Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, Acqualina guests can reserve a table for an elegant beachfront meal along one of the longest uninterrupted stretches of beachfront in all of South Florida. Meals feature indulgent dishes inspired by culinary traditions from across the globe – particularly Southern Europe and the Mediterranean – paired with an equally-expansive list of wines for truly memorable gourmet experiences. The only decisions required are what to eat – and where to place yourself along the sand and waves and shoreline.

The beachside dining program at Acqualina is all about making memories that will remain long after that last unforgettable bite. The menu is both uniquely thought out and exceptionally executed – reflecting the best in local fish, meats, dairy and produce paired with refined culinary techniques. Although the dinners vary and adapt in concert with the season, menus included might kick off with dishes such as tropical fish ceviche and Caprese Burrata accented by aged Modena Balsamic – which is perfect for sharing.

Next up is a choice of salads, entrees and desserts – which are accented by a range of exceptional accompaniments, such as foie gras, black truffle shavings, fresh oyster and lobster tails. No diner – and no diner request – is too ambitious for Acqualina’s dedicated service team, who will easily adjust and accommodate menus to honor the needs of vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians and those requiring gluten-free options. There’s a smile-making children’s menu to keep the little ones content, as well as a broad range of wines ready for Acqualina’s highly-trained sommelier teams to pair with your meal. After all, beachfront dining at Acqualina is all about personalization and exceptional experiences.

Acqualina’s beachfront dinners are elegant and exclusive – intended for both special occasions or making any night special.   The resort limits the Beachfront dining to just 10 tables per evening – ideal for couples, families or groups sized up to 10 guests per table. The meals are served amid stylish and sophisticated sea-front atmosphere where intimate service meets tranquil sea breezes. The evenings are joy-filled and languid, lasting for hours without a care or interruption – all overseen by a dedicated server and chef personally tending to each table all evening long. Reservations for Beachfront Dinners at Acqualina are available on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. The Beachfront Dinners are priced at $295 per person not including beverages plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, call the hotel’s concierge at (305) 918 6860.
