Bijoux Restaurant + Spirits in The Market Shops at the entrance of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was recently recognized as one of Florida’s best places to dine with “Florida Trend’s” Golden Spoon award. The annual winners appear in the 50th anniversary Golden Spoon special section in the December issue of Florida Trend magazine.

One of Destin’s top award-winning restaurants since 2002, Bijoux embodies coastal cuisine with a New Orleans flair. Open for dinner seven nights a week, Bijoux owners Leslie and Jack McGuckin feature the freshest Gulf seafood, prime steaks and an extensive, award-winning wine list. The stylish bar and intimate lounge area bites, wine, specialty martinis and craft cocktails. Award-winning Executive Chef/Owner Jack McGuckin and his team curate seasonal menus that feature the highest quality ingredients sourced both locally and regionally.
