Black Marlin Bar & Grill Brings Focus on Local Ingredients to Coastal Dining Scene

PORT ARANSAS, Texas, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Black Marlin Bar & Grill at Palmilla Beach Resort and Golf Club is now open for lunch, dinner and drinks with indoor and outdoor seating, and sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and Corpus Christi Bay from a third story, elevated bar.

Essentially an American grill, the Black Marlin fits the Port Aransas environment with its laid-back, casual ambiance, but the contemporary food Executive Chef Kaharim Becerra prepares is something new to the local dining scene. Chef Becerra is committed to fresh, sustainable ingredients, so the menu will be ever changing in order to take advantage of local producers.

"I plan to have an evolving menu because I focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and those change with the seasons and as we learn of new producers," said Chef Becerra. "We are currently featuring grass-fed beef and lamb, crab, tuna, calamari, salmon, shrimp, snapper and pasta dishes, so there will be a great variety – something for everyone. We also offer small plates, sandwiches, salads and desserts."

Current dinner entrees include a Grass Fed Petit Filet Mignon with a delicate wild mushroom glaze, Braised Lamb Shank with artichokes, fennel, pancetta, and Seville roasted tomatoes, and Chef-favorite, Pan-seared Gulf Snapper & Black Garlic Shavings. Add to the entrees deliciously simple small plates, soups, sandwiches and salads filled with luxurious ingredients, and every choice on the menu delivers something special. The full bar offers everything from carefully craft cocktails to an expertly selected wine list.

"Life is as good as the things we eat and enjoy with our loved ones," says Chef Kaharim. "I like to get creative as I cook – that makes it a great joy for me. I'm very excited to be in Port Aransas, and am looking forward to introducing the culinary influences of different cultures and pairing those techniques with the fresh ingredients and traditional dishes of the Texas Gulf Coast to create new dining experiences."

Chef Becerra's eclectic culinary style draws from his home in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, where he explains food has evolved from what the Spaniards brought to the new world from the Mediterranean influence to Asian. His experience includes seven years at the Grand America Hotel, the only AAA Five Diamond hotel in Salt Lake City, experience at another Five Diamond luxury resort in Montana and, most recently, as Executive Chef at Frida Bistro in Salt Lake City.

The Black Marlin Bar & Grill is located at 258 Snapdragon in the Palmilla Beach Resort and can be reached at (361) 749-4653. The Black Marlin serves lunch from 11am to 3pm seven days a week, with dinner served from 5 to 9pm on Friday and Saturday. The bar is open until 9pm Sunday to Thursday.   The Black Marlin Bar & Grill is an element of the Palmilla Beach Resort & Golf Club, a Koontz-McCombs development and the first True Texas Beach Resort.
