Whiskey Bravo takes it up a level with culinary collaboration

Published: Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 02:54 PM.

What patrons will find on the Whiskey Bravo menu will be some of Smiling Fish's most popular dishes, some of Baltazar's favorites, some of Whiskey Bravo's signatures, as well as some new ones. As far as the new duo touting a signature dish, Barnes said, "Everything is a signature dish and a star, or we wouldn't put it on the menu."

Moore is bringing back her Victoria Salad, and her fried mac and cheese, which she said were popular.

Joining those will be Baltazar's applewood smoked bacon caramel popcorn for the bar, braised beef shortribs, and his featured fish of the day.

Barnes will be offering his crispy duck spinach salad, fried grouper taco, and calamari salad — just to name a few.

"It is bigger and more contemporary than Smiling Fish with a great location. It will feel a little dressier, like putting on a new coat or shoes," said Barnes of his new-found home.

Barnes said the name tweaking of the restaurant will help passersby better know what to expect to find inside, and reflects the management's commitment to serving dishes prepared with the freshest local ingredients and presenting them in their purest form.

"It will be coastal bistro with more fish. We just moved from a sports bar theme into a casual creative bistro. And the price point will be comfortable for locals," he said.
