Destin’s only AAA Four Diamond restaurant offering martini to celebrate September event
Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood guests now have the opportunity to enjoy artwork by Louisiana artist and creator of the internationally recognized Blue Dog works, George Rodrigue. More than a dozen Blue Dog prints are hanging on the walls of Northwest Florida’s first AAA Four Diamond restaurant. The artwork has been displayed in anticipation of “An Evening with George Rodrigue,” a fund raiser being presented by the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation and the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts in late September, for which Seagar’s will serve as the hosting sponsor.
In celebration of the iconic art, Seagar’s general manager and certified sommelier, Kevin Moran, has created a signature Blue Dog martini, available through September. This commemorative drink blends Stolichnaya blueberry vodka, blue Curacao, pineapple and lemon juice.
“We’re honored to welcome the art of George Rodrigue to our restaurant and to have the opportunity to serve as the host of an event that will help advance the missions of the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation and of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts to motivate and engage students through the arts,” Moran said. “The Blue Dog martini was created to help celebrate this special occasion and toast to these renowned pieces of artwork.”
The Blue Dog martini is now available on the restaurant’s cocktail menu for $14.95. Additionally, Seagar’s boasts a wine list of more than 600 wine labels, which has earned Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” for seven consecutive years.
