The event is created, as are all good meals, thru incorporating and blending the finest ingredients.  We offer all food entrees (seafood, meat and vegetarian) prepared fresh onsite by local restaurants and food purveyors.  Seafood dishes are created using indigenous and sustainable ocean resources from Florida’s coastal waters.  Foods will be accompanied by a delicious assortment of side dishes, desserts and drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
