People resort to that when they have nothing intelligent to contribute to a conversation--the final rhetorical refuge of the ignorant and hateful. You're having fun, and making something from things that most folks treat as garbage. That's pretty smart as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed the vid--AND part 2, also--and you and your camerawoman seem like good people that I'd be happy to know. The trolls? They don't matter at all to anyone...and I see that you follow the first rule of internet comment control: "Do not feed the Trolls" Peace and prosperity are my wishes for you both.
Recently renovated in its entirety, the Jupiter Beach Resort also devoted substantial resources to the bar and grill that is Sinclair's. It's an elegantly appointed space, with views of their oceanfront pool, and in some cases over the dunes and foliage to the Atlantic surf itself. The menu was tight & focused, NOT overambitious, with an abundance of intriguing seafood offerings, as well as a few significant preparations in the non-seafood department -- as in some amazing steaks.
The BW (Beautiful Wife,) ordered a delectable and ample portion of Yellowtail Snapper, presented sautéed over a wonderful parmesan polenta with caper sauce, peppers, and kalamata olives--accompanied by a tomato/basil relish that augmented the taste to the level of magnificent. I entertained the Sea Scallops, which were perfectly cooked: browned and caramelized top and bottom, yet barely cooked (medium rare) through the center. Placed upon a bed of wilted baby spinach leaves with prosciutto over perfectly cooked basmati rice, the vanilla beurre blanc was placed UNDER the food on the plate NOT poured all over it. The taste delight was made even more savory by a drizzle of perfectly reduced balsamic vinegar that tasted so nearly like chocolate. My biggest compliment is that each bite of scallop was one SO exquisite that I wanted to keep in my mouth for as long as possible, not swallowing it--because I wanted to savor it for as long as I possibly could.
Not only were the portions ample and perfectly prepared, but their wine list was well-populated, though small (which is perfect for a local, niche restaurant.) This presented us with a most wonderful choice: a five-year-old Amarone listed at a mere $98! Anyone who's a fan of Amarones, knows that it's difficult to find a decent bottle in even a discount wine store for under $40. To find such a delight on a small-restaurant menu at a mere 100% markup was a gift in and of itself. A review of the balance of the wine list showed a significant number of similar choices with identical economics.
Mention must be made here of their carbaholics' delight of choices in fresh-baked breads with artisanal butters and spreads. I can't opine on any of those, however, because the BW and I both avoid even a whiff of wheat. Nevertheless, fairness dictates that the hearsay-based observations overheard from our neighbors' tables be mentioned here. They seemed to be enjoying their bread & spread offerings quite sufficiently so as to be compelling second and third baskets.
The dessert menu presented a sufficient number of delicious-sounding choices, which tended to make you forget that you just ate a completely satisfying meal. The need was to find sufficient stomach-room to stuff one of their sweet creations into your face. We stayed with the light choice of their three crème brulé: presented in a partitioned dish with separate selections of pomegranate, mango, and raspberry-flavored crème brûlée. It was a perfectly seamless end to the meal.
The wait staff was attentive, polite, and very well-trained --though I must say that the empty dishes, from which the food had been devoured, remained on the table for longer than expected. This was especially noticeable since the restaurant seemed rather sparsely populated during our meal. By the time we left it was far busier, but we were--by then--more interested in getting seated at the bar/lounge for an after-dinner drink. The bar is lovely; lots of wood, an impressive green-veined tan marble top, and a "wine wall" acting as a barrier betwixt bar and restaurant. Stocked with an abundant selection of top shelf small-batch Bourbons, single-malt Scotch, Irish, and Canadian whiskeys, the bar also offered an ample supply of top-shelf vodkas, gins, and liqueurs.
After our friendly, cheerful barkeep, Michelle, prepared and served our after-dinner libations we took a stroll to the surf-crashed beach under a near-full moon. All-in-all a beyond perfect evening, making for a more than memorable anniversary. I think we've discovered a new favorite "clubhouse!" The tab for this incredible evening of oral delights? Just $200 including the $98 for the Amarone!
Sinclair's is clearly a place that, though off the radar, needs to be discovered and enjoyed by as many as possible. You will certainly NOT be disappointed, and will most likely leave grinning from ear to ear at your good fortune in having discovered this gem, The entire experience can best be described as a two-hour vacation.
