Fresh seafood anniversary dinner near Key Biscayne?
My girlfriend and I will be visiting Miami at the end of the month. We're both from Florida originally (me Miami Beach, her Ft. Lauderdale) and we're spending a night at the Ritz on Key Biscayne (fancy I know, but we have a great hook up). We visit often but never to the Key Biscayne area.
Question is, where to go for dinner? We get enough of Joe Stone Crab's when we visit once or twice a year, so that's crossed off the list. And I think we're doing Michael's Genuine on Friday night with some friends (and at that point we won't be staying on Key Biscayne any longer).
What are some good dinner options in the Key Biscayne/Brickell/Miami River areas (open to the beach or Gables too if it's really good)? Ideally something nice...it's an anniversary dinner. We'd love a place with fantastic fresh seafood. We favor great food over trendy ambiance, but a nice atmosphere is always a plus. Budget is preferably under $100/person (with drinks) but might be willing to budge that a bit higher if necessary.
Also looking for some lunch options in the Key Biscayne area...the fresher the seafood the better. Preferably somewhere with grilled or raw seafood over fried. Is My Ceviche any good for a quick snack or light lunch?
Edge Steak Bar serves very good seafood, Naoe is the best restaurant in miami (sushi) but is an ordeal and expensive but worth it. DB Bistro is also great but expensive.
My Ceviche is great on the beach, I assume the Brickell location is great too. Momi Ramen is awesome and is open 24hrs/day.
