It looks like you enjoyed a stellar meal. I must admit, though, I'm especially drawn to the hominy pudding. It looks so creamy and satisfying.


That soup is riveting! Great photo. The hominy reminds me of spoonbread. Looks and sounds like a very fine meal.


Wow, it sounds like really a wonderful meal. Much as I like good service, I can deal with a few service issues when the food is outstanding. And it looks and sounds like it was.


the pea cream sauce sounds like the best part. i wish that came bottled and i could pour it all over my veggies.
but then again, if it came in a bottle, it wouldn't be the same.
absolutely beautiful pictures.

As usual, Christine, thanks for the trip and the meals. We enjoyed everything. :)

It was stellar, Susan, but like you I think the highpoint may have been the pudding. The dessert menu had many fancier choices, but something about the homey notion of a hominy pudding called to me. Now I just need to figure out how to make it.

I don't know spoonbread well, Susan, but it uses cornmeal, no? The texture of this dessert was different -- corny but almost chewy, in a smooth way (and that makes sense, doesn't it?)

Kalyn, I'm with you on the outstanding food thing, which is why we keep going back to Avenue Sea, despite some really comedic service glitches.

Anne, I wish I could figure out the sauce. It seemed almost as simple as pureed fresh peas with cream, though I am sure there was more to it than that.

Thanks, Cynthia. Come along anytime! :)


We just had our daughter's wedding dinner at the Gibson Inn's Avenue Sea restaurant. We have never had better food, or better service, anywhere. They can compete with Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia, or any 5-star restaurant. My one regret [besides wishing we lived close to Apalach], is that I wish we had asked for their autographs! :)

Hi! I was in Apalachicola yesterday for work, and stayed at the Gibson Inn. I decided to eat at Avenue Sea b/c it was in the inn. That meal was probably one of the best meals I have ever had, I felt like I stumbled upon a secret treasure! It was fantastic, and I hope to bring my husband back to enjoy it again.
