45 Central Wine and Sushi Bar
45 Central Square
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459
Located in the master-planned community of Seaside, 45 Central Wine & Sushi Bar serves various varietals by the glass or bottle as well as a petite selection of small bites and sushi. If you happen to saunter in one of the best seaside restaurants during one of the nights in which the kitchen serves Paella, you will not be disappointed, especially since it is prepared with an authentic and massive pan just like they prepare it in Valencia, Spain.
On the Menu
As with many wine bars, the focus is primarily on what types of grape are in the glass. However, the chefs at 45 Central Wine Bar also prepare a small selection of appetizers, charcuterie boards and customized sushi rolls. The cheese and charcuterie selections are perfect with a well-paired white or red depending on the cheese and salumi chosen. The ‘All Bleu’ board includes cheeses such as Point Reyes Original, Bay Blue, Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue and Statesboro Blue. A definite plate to order for those who enjoy this particularly piquant and unique cheese. The selection of menu items under the section ‘Green Stuff’ include a lovely plate of House Greens, a Miso-Balsamic Caesar Salad, a kale dish made with more than a dozen spices and a bowl of perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts. 45 Central also prepares small plates to share; don’t forget to order the creamy house-made Rillette de Fruits de Mer (smoked fish-dip) or the West Indies Crab Salad made with lump blue crab, avocado, grape tomatoes and tossed in a lime vinaigrette. The sushi list consists primarily of maki rolls. Most of them are familiar ones like the California, Spicy Tuna and Veggie. However, the chefs also create customized rolls.
Behind the Bar
45 Central Wine & Sushi Bar is one of the most popular wine bars within all the beach communities of South Walton County. The simple reason is because the wine list is so extensive. On the menu, guests will find full-bodied reds which include varietals like Rioja, Bordeaux and Zinfandel, just to name a few. The white wine selections are just as varied with popular grapes such as Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, but the cellar also provides lesser known varietals like Albariño, Sancerre and Marsanne. Ask your server about what type of wine to pair with your food selection; the waitstaff is friendly and always willing to help.

The wine bar is open daily from 2pm to midnight and when the weather is just right, there is an outdoor patio to enjoy your glass of wine and/or small bites.
