We had the honor to collaborate once again with incredible Chef Ryan Martin from 180° @ The DRB. The tuna used by Chef Martin was donated by Sea Delight in support of Sea Delight Ocean Fund’s mission to create awareness about seafood sustainability and Fishery Improvement Projects (FIP).
“It was great working with Sea Delight and supporting the Sea Delight Ocean Fund’s work towards Fishery Improvement Projects around the world,” said Chef Ryan Martin. “We created a poke tuna taco using tuna that is handline caught from Vietnam and sourced from one of these projects. We believe Chefs should act as ambassadors for seafood sustainability and we are proud to have had the opportunity to collaborate again with the Sea Delight Ocean Fund,” he added.
“Working with Chefs as Ambassadors of Seafood Sustainability is our way to help create awareness about sustainability here in South Florida. We believe consumer education is key in order to achieve long term sustainability and the health of our oceans,” said Adriana Sanchez, President of the Sea Delight Ocean Fund. “We look forward to working again with Chef Ryan (among others) at the Green Gourmet in Rock The Ocean‘s Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale Beach on April 7-9.
About 180° @ The DRB
180 degrees is a gastropub in the purest sense of the term, simple food performed with skillful execution and presentation. Its global plates made Chef Ryan Martin’s way. You can come in with your friends and order a few plates, or enjoy more than one item all to yourself. The motto here is gastronomy redefined, using ingredients from around the world and practicing an array of techniques and culinary tools including sous vide, dehydration, smoking and molecular gastronomy. You are not just eating, you are having a culinary experience, down to one of the over 150 craft beers you can order with your food, which have been handpicked by the chef himself to pair with your meal. We are available for Lunch, Dinner, happy hour, and brunch. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown off the north campus metro rail stop. Ample parking provided in the back.
