If you really want to feel a part of the beach-exec community, Goldie’s is your locale. Based on a community-minded philosophy, Goldie’s uses ingredients from local farmers and purveyors to give each item on its food and drink menu a “feel good” component, in addition to an all-natural approach. Sit in the Goldie’s patio for light bites on a lazy, sun-filled afternoon or by candlelight for an evening out. Favorite cocktails on the bar menu include The Smokey Pueblo, featuring fair quinoa vodka and heirloom tomatoes, the Japanese Cocktail, which includes Nikka Pure Malt 12 year Whisky, and the Lazarus Fair, a fun and flirty cocktail consisting of Bummers & Lazarus Gin and spiced cranberry and honey. When your stomach begins to growl, try the avocado on toast, and for bigger eyes, opt for the classic Goldie’s BLT or the burger.
