Maximal Concept’s seaside seafood joint Limewood is introducing a new menu this month, and what better way to spend the long weekend than to explore some of their new offerings? While classics like their 48-hour Charred Beef Ribs and their Pork Skin Chicharron Guacamole remain, they are complimenting their beachfront view with a Seafood Platter: a daily selection of both raw cooked seafood. For something a little more extravagant, try their Pacific Whole Lobster with Sriracha butter; not quite a Surf N’ Turf dish, but maybe the cocktails expertly paired with their dishes and garnished with fresh ingredients will make up for it.
