Cuvee Destin takes its name from the French word that refers to a blending of ingredients. It's fitting for the eatery, which combines its southern roots with worldly inspirations to create sophisticated culinary dishes. To accompany this eclectic cooking, the restaurant features an internationally sourced list of wines, which earned an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator for the last four consecutive years, adding to the restaurant's already impressive award collection that includes a spot on OpenTable's Top 100 Hottest Restaurant Bars and Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award.
Meet the Chef
From a young age, many chefs know they want to spend their lives cooking. But not very many chefs begin working in kitchens at age 14. This is exactly how Cuvee Destin owner and executive chef Tim Creehan began his career. After being promoted to executive chef, he spent decades showcasing his culinary skills in kitchens from Atlanta to Hong Kong. He also opened multiple restaurants, many of which still serve his signature dishes long after his parting.
His vast experience earned Creehan celebrity status on the Emerald Coast culinary scene. This status only increased after he appeared on regional television programs, was featured as Cooking Light's Shining Star Chef, published three cookbooks, and cooked for celebrities such as Bruce Willis, Cybill Shepherd, and Danny Glover. Most recently, Creehan was named "Best Chef" of 2015 by Emerald Coast Magazine.
