Allow the thick, loosely draped nautical rope to guide you to the doors of La Barataria, secretly nestled in exclusive Island Moorings in Port Aransas, overlooking the Marina. Rich in flavor, soaked in intimacy, and relaxed in décor, you may just have one of the best meals on the Island in your flip flops.
Keebler opened the restaurant 6 years ago in July and has kept it one of the best-kept secrets in the area. Keebler wanted locals to have an incredibly upscale meal but wanted their experience to be laid back. Known especially for pairing their dishes with the perfect wine, sake, or champagne, is just part of the experience.
Some of the dishes that Keebler’s gifted chefs presented The Bend were two of their sushi rolls, the shrimp tempura and the island roll, paired with Black and Gold sake. The innovation behind many of their rolls is evident when you glance at the sushi menu and see ingredients such as mint relish, beets, peppadew, chives, and capers to name a few! Their soft-shell crab with shishito peppers pairs perfectly with the Meursault Jean-Philippe Fichet as an appetizer. Top seller Chilean Sea Bass literally melts in your mouth, atop garlic mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and roasted cherry tomatoes that just beckon for an elegant red, the Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir.
Sometimes referred to as a Wine Bar and Champagne Lounge, the hospitable dining room carries an unusually large supply of wines and champagnes. Soon to come? Bellinis and Caviar.
