Restaurant Ups and Downs

With the season over we are getting our share of closings:

Graffiti and Funky Blues Shack in Baytowne Wharf (Baytowne Wharf becomes a ghost town right after Labor Day)

Blue Point Fish Club at the Commons (supposedly several new restaurants vying for the excellent location)

One relocation: Destin Another Broken Egg will be expanding their digs right in front of the Winn Dixie at the Palms Shopping Center in the heart of Destin.

Ouch! Hopefully Graffiti's other location stays open. I can't visit Destin without some of their chowder! By the way, has Blue Point already closed too? I was going to check it out next week while I am there.

Blue Point closed last Wed.

Also, Baby Js is on really thin ice and the Log reported last week that they are trying to sell the boat to someone in Mississippi and relocate there...

...Red Door outside bar will be my new hangout once Baby Js departs.

We saw where Another Broken Egg has a banner up with their "coming soon" sign. We thought it was another location. Are they closing down their current location, then?

Yes, Another Broken Egg is moving from their location close to the Bridge to a beautiful new place. Their lease ran out and I think the owners of the property have other plans. None of their other locations are closing.

Blue Point - You aren't missing anything. Horrid food, mismanaged and more. They are the same owner as the WaterGrille at Harbor Walk. Some of the worse food I have ever had. They served me a bowl of salsa and tried to convince me it was carribean chowder.....

I hope a locally owned restaurant with great food gets the space at Destin Commons. I think Destin needs more local flavor than chain restaurants. That is one of the things that makes us so unique.

Another Broken Egg is just moving - there is 3 of them around here.

The Red Door is on the hill behind the Boathouse on the harbor.

Semco - I totally agree. Eating at places unique to the area is part of the vacation experience.

Does anyone know when the new Broken Egg will be open. We have tried to eat there before but always full. We will be there in a couple of weeks. Just wondering if it would be open then. Thx

We were in Destin three weeks ago and Another Broken Egg's current (old) location was still open while they were building out their new one. I guess they wont close the current location until they open in the new one...
