Best of the Beach 2016, Best Restaurant, Hey 19
If you tell someone that you just had a great meal at a restaurant, the first question you’ll probably get is “What do they serve?” If they ask that about Hey 19 you’ll probably be tongue-tied for a moment. You can get high style items like a salmon salad topped with an assortment of nuts and vegetables or rack of lamb crusted with spearmint and fig, or something retro like tomato soup with grilled cheese or a chicken pot pie. There are whimsical bar snacks, hefty steaks, and chicken and waffles, plus daily specials that might go in any culinary direction. There are many choices, and they’re all executed in a way that keeps bringing people back for more.
