Fathers Day

Today we celebrated the Fathers in our merry little group by treating them to a fabulous brunch at Pier 366 Seafood House. Located at Banyon Bay Hotel and Resort just south of San Pedro town, and on the beach sits a comfortably elegant restaurant that is the perfect setting for a lazy Sunday brunch. 

There was a great Prix Fixe three course menu and special bucket of beer price for the dads. Big daddy and I chose to start off with Bloody Mary’s instead.  Here is a look at the choices.

Roger started off with the Seafood Gumbo and I had the Crab Cakes with mango chutney, delicious! The gumbo was full of fresh seafood and my crab cakes were light and flakey?

For the main course, we both had the Stone Crab Benedict. Big chunks of sweet crab covered in a velvety hollandaise sauce with a hint of ramps. The perfectly poached eggs were resting on a whole wheat English muffin. Amazing flavors!

The crowning glory of the meal though was the dark chocolate soufflé for desert. Warm dark chocolate topped with vanilla ice cream with mango sauce. We wanted to lick our plates it was so richly decadent! 

All in all the meal was perfect and the company even better. A perfect Caribbean setting for a relaxing meal. It was a bit warm, but the occasional breeze helped keep us comfortable, and the cold drinks helped as well. 

Here are some additional photos of the Resort and the beautiful grounds at Banyon Bay. I highly recommend it! A picture postcard day with great friends. Life is good!
