For happy hour, Seaworthy offers a half-dozen wild oysters for a mere $6 -- or a half-dozen premium oysters for $12, in addition to discounts on creative cocktails and other spirits. It also offers brunch service on weekends. One of the most popular beverages is dubbed “Holy Water," a blend of cognac, spiced rum, house orgeat, and citrus, topped with Angostura bitters and a green chartreuse-soaked sugar cube set ablaze.
Credit is also due to Causgrove’s lush menu. The dishes he’s most proud of at the moment are the pork belly with heirloom tomatoes & ricotta, the ceviche of Gulf fish with habanero & grit crisps and the clam linguine with chanterelles & absinthe.
