I have just had a peek at the dinner menu and almost everything appeals to me (!). What are some of the great dishes to help me when I go? Thanks.
The whole grilled snapper is fantastic. I also love the beet salad, Brussels sprouts, devilled eggs and the dessert with the little doughnuts. It is one of my favourite places in Miami and is consistently wonderful.
Any fish, whole or otherwise, that comes out of that wood oven is fantastic.
Tough to name favorites because I eat there frequently and usually order what is new to the menu for me (it changes daily) but here are some staples:
crispy pig ears
chicken liver crostini
double yolk egg
wood fired octopus
crispy rice cake
pasta (changes daily but it's usually terrific if you're in the mood for pasta)
crispy pork belly
any fish dish
pizza (if you're so inclined - great share as a starter too)
any fish, whole or otherwise
leg of lamb
poulet rouge chicken (I've never had but people rave about it)
steak au poive
poulet rouge chicken (ditto)
cauliflower w/ parsley sauce
squash w/ anchovy butter
brussels sprouts w/ pancetta
Just wanted to report back on our dinner last Saturday evening. Everything was top notch, as expected.
We shared everything. Had the octopus, blt salad (delicious), brussel sprouts with crispy pancetta (wow!), squash and the whole roasted yellow eye snapper. The entire meal was great. The octopus portion was on the skimpy side, but it was grilled to perfection - 2 small pieces. Our server was so enthusiastic and made the dinner very enjoyable.
