From 12:00-4:00 p.m., guests may order brunch from Executive Chef Yo Matsuzaki’s scrumptious menu. Mouthwatering dishes such as Chicken & Waffles with cashew butter, Shrimp & Cheddar Grits with tiger shrimp, and freshly-rolled Sushi Donuts are available poolside or tableside. To add an extra level of summertime refreshment, Lead Bartender Matt Allred will be serving up playful cocktails like the Selfie Sticks (boozy popsicles) and the NSFW (Angels Envy Bourbon, passion fruit and white peach purée, lemon juice, and ghost pepper tincture).
