“As my career comes to a close, I’m happy to say that this is one of the best accomplishments of my life,” [Geoff Dobson] told his dining companions Saturday at the restaurant in Destin. The 29-year-old Air Force lieutenant was sitting in front of the restaurant’s Grand Burger, a $100 custom-ground filet mignon served with caviar, beefsteak tomatoes and a grand magnum of imported champagne.
