In Hemingway's Bar & Grill's bustling kitchen, Chef Jason West crafts rotating weekly menus inspired by seasonal produce and fresh catches. The seafood cache pairs pasta and vegetables with a sautéed or artfully blackened fillet, which, like Ebenezer Scrooge, is warm and tender beneath its toughened demeanor. A signature gnocchi of the day joins chops and bowls swirling with house-made soups, and lavish Sunday brunches greet the day with pastries, omelets, and curlicues of peel-and-eat shrimp. Hemingway's full-service bar, the Blue Marlin, pours domestic and imported beers alongside flights and bottles of wines, which often headline their own tasting events. Hemingway's Bar & Grill also caters special events throughout the Corpus Christi area.

The chefs at Bellino's Italian Restaurant handcraft fresh ingredients into a menu of traditional Italian eats. Steer tiny metal soup gondolas through a bowl of tomato and mussel zuppa di cozze ($9.95), or nosh on an order of bruschetta con gamberi e broccoli, which, like a volcanic eruption on the Italian coast, scatters sautéed shrimp and broccoli across toasted garlic bread ($8.95). Pollo al gorgonzola finds a fowl lounging in a creamy gorgonzola sauce atop a bed of spaghetti ($20.95), and fish, shrimp, clams, and mussels dawdle in the tomato-based soup caciucco ($20.95). Transport yourself to a rustic Italian village with an order of homemade Sicilian-style tiramisu sprinkled with a dusting of cocoa ($6.95).

Chefs fuel hungry fisher-folk as they cast lines from picturesque Keepers Pier, serving them a menu of burgers and drinks. Beefy bounties commence with two juicy Jalitos, thinly sliced jalapeño peppers that receive generous coats of breading and dips into the deep frier. Cool down jalapeño-warmed mouths with a soft drink of your choice or by installing miniature fans on your uvula, before biting into a thick Beach burger. After the meal, diners can pick up their fishing pole and hit up some of the U.S. Gulf Coast’s most productive fishing piers. Baited lines can lure texas red fish, scrumptious speckled trout, and whopping black-drum fish, which can grow up to 78 pounds. Big-game sharks prowl the waters, as do feisty cobia fish, whose delicate white meat obtains its color after chilling, late-night readings of Moby Dick.
