After months of preparations, Ocean Grille & Beach Bar, 1228 Seawall Blvd. on the island, has fired up the grill.
The restaurant, a Randall Pettit concept, opened earlier this week serving up seafood, burgers and more.
Ocean Grille & Beach Bar is acquiring its seafood fresh off the docks at Katie’s Seafood Market in Galveston. It also boasts its own herb garden and wine list with more than 100 selections and friendly prices, Pettit said. The restaurant also is serving Wagyu beef, which has been referred to as “American-style Kobe.”
“I’m extremely pleased how everything turned out,” Pettit said.
Brian Peper, formerly of Costa Brava Bistro in Houston, is the chef.
Bryan Davis is the general manager; Barry Waite is the beverage manager; and Dawn Broadley is the front of the house manager.
Pettit worked closely with chef consultant Randy Evans, who last summer closed his popular Houston eatery Haven, a farm-to-table concept famous for its fried chicken and upscale comfort food.
