Borago Restaurant: A picky diner's eatery of choice

Published: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 12:59 PM.

SANTA ROSA BEACH — I am only home for a few weeks between semesters at Auburn University and one of my favorite things about being home is the ability to cook with my family.

We rarely eat out while I am home because I always come ready with a list of recipes I want to try that consist of dishes that I would prefer to have supervision with as a college chef.

My one exception to this staying-home-to-eat rule is Borago’s in Grayton Beach. The restaurant is low-key and friendly, we recognize the staff and normally run into friends and neighbors there.

Not to mention, the food is phenomenal.

As a picky eater — a pescetarian with food allergies — I always feel safe with the quality of the food since I prefer to eat only wild-caught seafood and organic vegetables.

The food
The classic Trattoria restaurant encourages several courses and Borago’s menu follows this example.

The appetizers include pan seared scallops with a soft cheese polenta and a roasted tomato butter sauce; wild mushroom ravioli with shiitakes, portabellas, and a porcini mushroom broth and number one tuna, seared rare with arugula, fried capers, shaved parmesan and a spicy mustard sauce.
