Cobalt Restaurant and Meeting Emeril Lagasse

A few weeks ago I took my parents to Cobalt Restaurant to celebrate their 27th. Wedding Anniversary. We have been to Cobalt several times, each time the food was wonderful. Typically when we visit I get the burger with a side of cheese risotto, the cheese risotto is the best I have ever had. My parents have had the shrimp and grits, fresh fish, and Tournedos of Beef. Since it was a special occasion Mom had Tournedos of Beef which is twin medallions of beef tenderloin stacked on top of fried mash potato cakes with greens and fried oysters to top it off. My Dad had shrimp and fresh fish, then I tried the wood fired pizza which was amazing. The restaurant also brought out a cupcake to celebrate their anniversary, my parents choose the tiramisu cupcake which was surprisingly good.
While we were eating we noticed the table across from us had a familiar face, at first I just passed if off as someone who looked a lot like Emeril Lagasse but then as the meal went on we realized it actually was him. Emeril was incredibly nice and as we chatted it was evident to see why he is so popular, what a great guy, not to mention a awesome chef, BAM!!

The Gulf Orange Beach Alabama

Who would’ve ever thought Shipping containers could be cool?! Well the Gulf restaurant in Orange Beach Alabama is built out of shipping containers which offers a very cool atmosphere. With just recently relocating to the area we had heard so much about this restaurant and had to go check it out for ourselves. It is perfectly located just over the bridge into Orange Beach and it’s right on the Gulf of Mexico. When you’re eating you can view all the boats going in and out of the pass. They have mixed seating with tables, chairs and lounges located on grass and sand. They have a rotating menu so you never know for sure what they will have each day but they are all about the Gulf to table setting. When we went I had a hamburger which was delicious, my parents had fresh fish Poboys and we had a side of fresh cut french fries, which reminded me of fair fries. The food was excellent just like the view!
If you are looking for a fun place to eat with a great view while in the Perdido Key/Orange Beach Fl area then The Gulf is for you! Below is a photo journal of our visit.
