Chef Ed Reese began his 27 year career in the fine dining restaurants of Ft. Walton Beach, FL. He attained his degree at the acclaimed Culinary School at Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina and then went on to work under James Beard Award-Winning Chef Frank Stitt in Birmingham, Alabama. His years with Stitt enabled him to explore many different flavors, European regional cuisines and to expand his creativity. “I learned from Frank to keep it simple and fresh. I love using fresh produce and seafood and letting those flavors come through.” Ed moved on to Stitt’s Highlands Bar & Grill. There, he expanded his knowledge to include French Cuisine, which was incorporated into the Southern menu.

After many years in Birmingham, Ed and his wife Erin, who also grew up on the Florida coast, packed up their six children and returned to the beach. Ed has served as executive chef at some of the most popular restaurants on 30A but he longed to have his own little place. A restaurant that is simple and sophisticated where people can relax and enjoy great food. Ed and Erin found the perfect location and have created an intimate chef driven restaurant.

Edward’s is partnered with local growers, seafood and meat purveyors to bring you only the best. “I rely on the freshest ingredients that I can get and I prepare them simply to let the natural flavors come through.

Where Spain comes to Rosemary Beach

The concept is borrowed from the incredibly popular tapas and chocolate shops of Madrid and Barcelona as discovered on a recent trip to Spain. Rosemary Beach and Barcelona share a similar climate and strategic location next to the sea for fresh food so we see a tapas and chocolate shop as a natural fit for our hometown. Having lived in Rosemary Beach for three years we have noticed the void of an in-expensive place to linger with friends while snacking and enjoying great flavors.

Location: Watercolor Crossings Shopping Center; on CR395, 1/4 mile N of Scenic 30-A Phone: 850-231-3030

Voted Best Pizza on 30A! When we decided to open Pizza by the Sea, our goal was to make the best pizza in the area. We wanted to create a pie that was so good, you couldn’t wait to get back and have another. Months of testing various ingredients and processes were spent to perfect our pizza. Only the finest selection of tomatoes, herbs and spices go in to our sauce, and the Mozzarella we have chosen is quite simply the best available. We cook our fresh dough directly on the hot stone surface of the oven instead of taking shortcuts like the other guys just to make a “quick” pizza. We are proud of our product and we hope you notice the difference.
