Recently, the Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, introduced a "fish concierge" at the property's Sun-Sun Beach Bar & Grill beside the Atlantic Ocean. Executive Chef Erik Malzahn will identify, fillet and cook guests' catch at the restaurant, located in an open-air wood pavilion and specializing in tantalizing seafood and tropical salads.
Based on optimal ways to prepare each species and size of fish, Malzahn advises diners about the best cooking method, such as pan-fried, deep-fried, blackened or grilled, to bring out the flavor of the catch. He also will answer questions and provide tips on cooking with fish. For guests who enjoy pursuing prime food fish such as yellowtail snapper and mahi-mahi, consulting the Casa Marina's "fish concierge" means they can enjoy the fruits of their angling and savor an expertly prepared dinner.
Casa Marina dates back to 1920 and includes more than 300 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites, two tropical swimming pools with private poolside cabanas, more than 22,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space as well as 1,100 feet of private Atlantic Ocean beach.
