Nick Dimario is Team Captain at Sunset Pointe @ Fly Creek Marina

NICKNick Dimario grew up in Overbrook, Philadelphia and started his restaurant training at the age of thirteen. After he graduated high school, Nick headed south to Tuscaloosa to walk on with the Crimson Tide and also studied Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Alabama. Nick went to work for Bob Baumhower’s Tuscaloosa location of Wings Sports Grill. He worked his way up through the ranks and was with Aloha Hospitality for 24 years in various management positions in different parts of the state. He was part of the company’s growth and credits Baumhower for providing him with the extensive experience that he has under his belt. During that time, Nick met Pete Blohme. They worked together at several different intervals and maintained a friendship over the years. Pete Blohme is the proprietor and owner of Panini Pete’s in Fairhope. This past December, when Pete opened a third restaurant, Sunset Point at Fly Creek Marina, Dimario and Blohme teamed up once again.
Nick truly believes in what is happening at Sunset Pointe and appreciates the long term potential of the concept. Together, Nick, Pete and the staff at Sunset Pointe are learning together. There is a huge investment in training and preparation and all of the members of the team grow together as they continue to learn.
The menu at Sunset Pointe is focused on farm to table. Everything is made from scratch from ingredients that come from fields in Baldwin County and seafood from Gulf Coast waters. The burgers and hand formed from freshly ground meat, they cut their own chips and fries, make their own pimento cheese and the list goes on! They feature a fresh catch, fresh starch, fresh vegetable and fresh dessert daily. “Bights” are the theme for the restaurant’s menu. Small “Bights” include BBQ shrimp, seared tuna nachos, crab-meat-balls, seafood lettuce wraps, a Mediterranean tuna crudo and grouper bights. Bowl & Garden “Bights” include their salads, a bouillabaisse and mussels in a  beer broth. Their “Bights” on Bread include a seared tuna BLT, a grouper sandwich and an incredible burger. The Entrees are considered Full “Bights” and showcase Gulf Snapper Throats, Southern Fried Fish & Chips, Sesame Seared Tuna, Flat Iron Steak, Lemon Butter Chicken and Grilled Gulf Shrimp. Kid “Bights” are also available for the little ones.
In addition to the food, the libations are also top notch. They have a great selection of beer and wine and just like the food, their signature cocktails are hand crafted as well. All of their bartenders are trained mixologists that subscribe to the same standards behind the bar as the kitchen staff does with the food. Fresh herbs are used and nothing is ever premixed. It’s an old time feel with new time flavors. They toast at sunset every evening so make plans to wine down at sundown with the amazing crew at Sunset Pointe. Currently, the hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 4:30pm until 9pm and Friday through Sunday, 11:30am until 9pm.  Sunset Pointe, 831 North Section Street, Fairhope  (251) 990-7766 • • Facebook “Sunset Pointe at Fly Creek Marina”
