15 Best Restaurants in the Florida Keys that Even the Locals Love

Here are the best restaurants in the Florida Keys for you to choose from as recommended by the locals. TBH, you can’t really go wrong! Like most of Florida, Key West is a lesson in living the good life. Visitors flock to island city for watersports and stunning coral reef dives, only leaving water for its lively nightlife. Others, like me, have a blast wandering through the conch-style architecture and its pastel palette. But do you know what really keeps people visiting the Conch Republic over and over again? Key lime pies, seafood fresh from the Gulf and a dab of Caribbean flavour. From old paint-is-peeling shops to revamped eateries, these 15 best restaurants in Key West will keep your mouths busy, stomachs full! Best Restaurants in the Florida Keys Here are the best places to eat in the Florida Keys – you definitely won’t go hungry! 1. Alabama Jack’s, Key Largo Don’t look at the ‘shabby shack’ exterior and dismiss it – Alabama Jack’s beach bar is a local favourite! Sitting along Card Sound Road since 1950s, Alabama Jack’s the only thing out on this alternate route from Key Largo to Key West. Coined one of Florida’s best fish shacks, the open-air structure was built over water, just large enough for an impromptu dance floor. It’s famous for its conch fritters! Catering to the casual and relaxed vibe of the place, expect steamed shrimps alongside burgers and fish sandwiches. There’s plenty of beer to wash down the comfort food too. 2. Snappers, Key Largo Like its name suggests, Snappers in Key Largo is all about fresh sea catches. Founded in 1989, it’s an old-school restaurant and bar with indoor seating and an outdoor deck. Why visit? Every Sunday is celebrated with a brunch featuring live jazz. What I love about the menu is the sheer variety! Sample their smoked fish spread and Applewood-smoked bacon wrapped scallops to start with; their mains include grilled filets, lobster tails and specialty tacos. You can even bring your own catch and have it prepped in several ways – beer battered, char-grilled, sautéed and baked. 3. No Name Pub, Big Pine Key For a pub with no name, it sure has a big reputation. Off-the-track, eccentric and literally loaded with money, this funky bait-and-tackle shop turned eatery is a brilliant story. The coolest thing about it is how every visitor contributes $1 to the interior! Literally every surface is covered with dollar bills […]

Things to Consider When Choosing a Restaurant

My husband and I love trying out dishes in restaurants, something we can’t do better at home, so we choose a restaurant based on this. How Do You Choose a Restaurant? How do you choose a restaurant? Will the occasion itself shape your choice? Or, is food a major factor? Aren’t service, ambiance, and location important, too? Or, do you go for Michelin stars? Whether we are conscious of it or not, we have our reasons for choosing a restaurant. Which Restaurant to Choose? When you take the time to choose, oftentimes, you are rewarded with a great gastronomic experience built around the ambiance of the restaurant and the attitude of the staff serving you. In choosing a restaurant, one faces many considerations. Word of mouth or reviews is useful. They give you an idea of what the restaurant is like. Especially from people who had been to this place several times. That would be a vote for the restaurant. But why not take the risk and try out something new each time? This, too, could result in gastronomic surprises. Will You Choose This Restaurant? What Are Your Top Criteria? Best Guide in How to Choose a Good Restaurant Sometimes, all we want to do is get a table and eat. But once in a while, to make of our eating out an experience is quite enjoyable. Some of us know exactly what to look for. But for those who have not much clue in making your restaurant visit a memory to cherish, here are some tips for a great restaurant experience. Barcelona Restaurant 1. Location of the Restaurant Choose a restaurant you can walk to. When you want to have a great time, driving afterward can pose a real problem. So, get a restaurant that is close by where you can easily walk or where it is easy to get a cab. Another 50 bucks for a cab to go to a restaurant adds unnecessary expense. Of course, it is different when the location is truly superb: a lake, seaside, riverside, or a spectacular view of the mountain or an architectural gem. But food must be excellent to enjoy a $50 cab ride value. A Neighbourhood Restaurant? Beautiful Restaurant in Istanbul aesta1 2. Ambience Matters Sometimes, the restaurant may be beautiful but the décor is not to your taste. It jars your senses. Go to a place where you enjoy […]

WHAT IS COASTAL CUISINE?

(Source: Serea Coastal Cuisine Facebook page) SAN DIEGO COASTAL CUISINE Serea Coastal Cuisine is a sea-to-table restaurant specializing in coastal cuisine. But what does that mean, exactly? On the one hand, the term coastal cuisine is pretty self-explanatory. It refers to having a primary focus on foods that come from the sea. However, that doesn’t really tell the full story of our careful sourcing, high-quality products, and how these things reflect in the finished flavor of our food. In this post, we’ll explain what coastal cuisine means to us, how we maintain our stringent standards, what it all means in terms of your dining experience. (Source: Serea Coastal Cuisine Facebook page) what exactly is coastal cuisine? Coastal cuisine doesn’t refer to a specific type of seafood or recipe. Rather, it’s an overarching approach toward seafood. The name of the game is simplicity. That is to say: what can we do to maximize both sustainability and flavor? One of the key characteristics of coastal cuisine is freshness. When a product is superior, we believe that it doesn’t need to be doctored up very much. Our chefs try to maintain the natural flavor of the seafood in question by preparing it simply, so the vibrant flavors can shine through. Why mess with a good thing? On the Serea menu, you’ll see all manner of simply prepared dishes featuring the bounty of the sea, from raw and cooked options from the fresh whole catch to seafood towers and composed dishes. California cuisine is another important influence. To really understand Serea’s approach to seafood, it’s important to understand not just the idea of coastal cuisine but to have a grasp on the concept of California cuisine, too. California cuisine is like coastal cuisine in that it’s less about a specific recipe or flavor and more about a particular mentality and approach to food. California cuisine’s hallmarks include fresh ingredients, simple preparations, and an emphasis on sustainable and local ingredients. California cuisine is also characterized by global inspirations, including spices and techniques influenced by cultures including Asian, European, and South American countries.
