Fully recovered and reinvigorated: Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina is at 100 percent and welcoming back locals and guests to Raw Bar this weekend.
Delivering the original Raw Bar experience with a new two-story design, Raw Bar sits 25 feet above the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the only double-deck raw bars in the Keys. Featuring open-air space, the scene is casual and relaxed. Up top, the bar offers an adults-only destination to sit back and enjoy a Cuban punch or margarita and some menu choices like peel & eat shrimp, Bahamian Conch chowder and sandwiches.
“We’re ecstatic. We’re over the moon over this place,” said Chef Chris Cash. “We can’t wait to have this place filled up to dish out some awesome food. We’re doing everything from the freshest tuna to the freshest grouper. We’re trying to make sure we’re keeping everything up where our standards are, which are really high for the locals and our guests.”
With Raw Bar set for a grand opening Saturday, Nov. 2, it’ll mark the end to the resort’s restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma. And it’s the start of a new chapter in the resort’s story.
“It’s going be anywhere from laid back to high energy,” Cash said. “You get up on that upstairs bar where it gets packed, it’s going to be a lot of fun energy. We have amazing bartenders up there who are personable. Down below, it’ll be a laid back, more family feel.”
Overall, Cash said reception has been positive since a soft opening earlier in the week.
“Everything’s come back great,” he said.
