Mulligan's, a longtime beach bar without a lot of culinary ambition, was replaced in 2010 by Ocean Breeze. In that transition it underwent a fairly elegant remodel, with an international small-plate menu that turned out not to be a perfect fit for this waterside locale. At the end of 2011 the space started its next life as the Salty Rim Grill, with a "crush bar" of slushy, juice-based cocktails and a menu that ranges from Cancun to Key West. Salty Rim is festive, the kind of place where a mess of shared appetizers seems like a reasonable dining strategy, and the main attraction is the signature drinks list.
