Groovy Grouper offers global with a twist

Shoppers, residents and visitors have a new dining option with the Groovy Grouper Grill  — Destin Commons' newest dining establishment, which offers a new concept.

Designed to be more than just a place to eat while resting your feet and credit card, The Groovy Grouper will also teach you something while you dine.

What diners will see are 32 flat-screen TVs showing cooking demos by Chef Orion Cordoves, or a video of managing partner Kevin Moran imparting his knowledge of various wines and how they best pair with which foods.

Moran is a certified Level 2 Master Sommelier and he plans to teach wine education classes at The Groovy Grouper. 

Chef Orion calls his menu "global with his own twist."

That twist is evident in the chef's specialty — The Commons Burger — topped with pulled pork, fried onion rings, and a fried egg.

"It is served with a knife," he said.
