Sharky's Got Fins

A new dining venue has sprung from the sandy beach at Sharky's on the Pier. It's called Fins' and Brother Virg treated our party of four to dinner there last Saturday night. My part was to secure a reservation, good beach weather for dining on Fins' deck, and a beautiful sunset.
 
I managed the reservation but not the weather.
Shades were drawn on the deck, heat piped in, and a cloudy sky hid the sun from view.
However, on the good side, the food was divine!
 
I couldn't photograph the occasion.
Instead, I returned later to photograph the gleaming architecture
without interrupting the interior or deck filled with guests.
 
The date Fins' opened becomes a yard ornament on a fin-shaped sign.

Sharks swim down the two-story fall of water at the entry.
Such a lovely mix of materials used in this flood and hurricane-proof construction.



Fins' is built on stilts so a staircase is the way to heaven.
Yes, there's an elevator, too.


 
Sorry about the repeat of this picture.
I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and am still trying to figure out
how everything works.

Looks beautiful..but how was the food? I'm assuming it was as nice as the venue! Remember, I'm living vicariously through you until Spring truly arrives! I think it was only -14 this morning!

Looks like a great addition to the neighborhood. The sun will come out tomorrow. . . or the next time you're there.
What a nice brother!

Yes, Kathy (yaya) the food was great. I had lobster nachos because I'm a small plate person...the nachos were hand-cut, handmade by the restaurant.
A third of the menu is sushi, the rest is seafood and steaks. Pricey but delish!

What an interesting place. LOVE the color blue they used as you come up the stairs! The color draws you in, like the sea, and sky.
What a nice brother that Stan is!!

So many stairs! I hope they have an elevator for those like me who get winded easily. And I hope the food did not disappoint.

Very cool. Lobster nachos?????
Oh my … yummmmmm.
Ok now I have to eat something. Unfortunately, not lobster nachos. That sounds amazing.

The restaurant architecture looks very modern – from reading the comments it sounds like the food is also very tasty. You must have had an enjoyable time. I really like going to seafood restaurants – but I am not much of a sushi person though (my daughters are.)

Donna said...

Me too...LOBSTER NACHOS?!? Wow! And it's so pretty Becky. Have a good time!!

Well you may not have gotten photos of the actual occasion, but I liked the picture you painted with your words! It sounded cozy :)

I like the architecture and noted the flood and hurricane proof design. A good place to relax. Glad you had a lovely meal there.
