“Jim Altamura was the ultimate trendsetter when he opened Marina Café in 1988. The hip, contemporary fine dining restaurant was the first of its kind in the area. An eclectic and chic waterfront restaurant reminiscent of L.A. or Miami was considered a risky venture at a time when the primary restaurant selections in Destin were still based on traditional Southern cooking and fried seafood. The trend toward light, fusion cuisine had not infiltrated the Destin market, until Altamura had the vision and courage to give it a chance.” (Emerald Coast Magazine, April/May 2005) With fresh seafood, prime steaks, sushi, wood-fired pizzas and an extensive international wine collection that perfectly complements the eclectic menu it is no wonder why Marina Café is known as the area’s most awarded restaurant to date.
In early 2010 Altamura opened Crush Wine Bar located in the heart of Seaside . Crush, located in the Central Square of Seaside. Crush offers diners an exceptional wine list, lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and sushi The intimate wine bar features outdoor covered sidewalk dining that is reminiscent of a European café.
