Seafood & Cocktails by the Sea...
Do you enjoy seafood? What about cocktails?
OK, here's a proposal for you: Why not, on your next date with your special someone, head down to East Coast beach to enjoy a scrumptious seafood spread & top-notch cocktails by the sea? Think balmy evening. Al fresco. Sea breeze. At a restaurant that's posh yet laidback.
Sounds good? Well, it sure did to me! *LOL*
That's why on Monday - though I was technically on leave - I accepted 1 Twenty Six 's invitation for a media food tasting. I wasn't sure what to expect except that the cocktails would be good, since 1 Twenty Six is (after all) the sister of One Rochester, where we recently held our colonial cocktail workshop!
It was cool & drizzly when I got to Playground @ Big Splash at 7pm. Getting there is easy if you drive, but you'll need to cab in if you don't. Just look out for Carl's Jr and 1 Twenty Six is beside it.
Well, I'll let my pictures do the work from here on. As they say, "A picture's worth a thousand words". ENJOY!!!
The whole al fresco "jardin" concept reminded me of One Rochester, where we had our cocktail workshop recently.
My colleague Justine & I went together. Pity Stan couldn't join us. He had to be in "top form" for his upcoming tennis tournament!
Ah! The mains finally arrive...
