The Gathering Spot at the WaterColor Inn Unveils New All-Day Dining Menus


New Offerings Include Bowl-Themed Entrees and a Build-Your-Own Martini

Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. (August 14, 2019) – The Gathering Spot, located within the WaterColor Inn, has unveiled new all-day menus.

The new bowl-themed menus provide guests with the chance to try a signature entrée bowl (such as the Cobb Bowl or the Caesar Bowl), or to experiment with flavors by building their own bowl – choosing a base, vegetable, protein and sauce. Breakfast bowls (such as the Salmon Bowl) are also available, as are delicious handhelds, which include a Wagyu Burger, Smoked Wings and House-Made Soft Pretzels served with beer cheese.

“Guests will find it hard to pick a new favorite, but I recommend they have some fun trying out different bowls. My choice? House-made fettuccini, Gulf grouper, locally roasted vegetables and some pesto, for good measure,” says Matt Moore, Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director. “Those looking to share smaller plates are sure to be tempted by the scent of our hot, fresh-made pretzels, while the cauliflower has quickly become a preferred (and innovative) appetizer.”

Keeping with the build-your-own theme, the restaurant’s cocktail menu now includes a Build-Your-Own Martini option, in addition to the restaurant’s wide selection of wines, beers and creative libations. Guests can select their choice of Spirit, Syrups (or Purees), Mixers, Bitters and Garnishes for a truly personalized sip.

“My advice to guests is to be adventurous,” says Kyle Davis, Assistant Director of Food & Beverage. “It’s best to rely on the knowledge of our staff as a guide, but don’t be afraid to venture out. Plus, blue cheese stuffed olives taste great with tequila!”

A popular spot for a casual meal in a laidback, beach-house setting, The Gathering Spot is a comfortable place for families and couples alike to spend time together, while enjoying a fresh (and fun) meal.
