FOOD + DRINK Exec. Chef Chris Bauer of Eddie V’s presents a variety of Gulf and East Coast oysters prepared in nearly every way imaginable – on the half shell, grilled, roasted, fried, in gumbo and more!

A Bloody Mary Bar, mineral water by Topo Chico, specialty cocktails by Deep Eddy Vodka, wine from Glazer’s premium wineries Codorníu, The Crossings and Edna Valley, and a selection of local beers round out the extensive beverage menu.
