Balao rooftop restaurant is the brainchild of the team behind Burwell’s Stone Fire Grill. Enter Burwell’s and go up the stairs in the back to find this “hidden speakeasy” on the second floor. In this casual setting you’ll find a seafood-specific menu showcasing fresh, locally sourced dishes, such as Ceviche, Ahi Tuna Nachos, Berenjenas La Taberna, and Spicy Blue Crab Beignets. The restaurant opened in April 2018 and became an immediate hit. Check out their cocktails: Summer Rose Tequilla.
