We've been chatting with the executive chef of the Limelight Dipping Bar and Grill, Chef Lefty Karropoulos. Today he's giving us his recipe for a Chilled Seafood Martini.

Chef Lefty also shared a recipe for Orange Sesame Ginger dipping sauce that he plans to add to the Limelight menu on his personal blog.
