Joe’s Stone Crab – Miami Beach, FL

What does one do when they go to Miami Beach?  Eat Stone Crab of course!  And that we did.  Lots of it everywhere we went.  The most famous institution though is Joe’s Stone Crab located at the southern tip of South Beach.  There is some serious history to this place which isn’t surprising seeing as it’s been open for over 100 years!

We arrived late in the afternoon only to miss the lunch service and therefore were limited to the bar menu, but limiting it was not considering all we really wanted was Stone Crab.  The Stone Crab was amazing…we ate many more than the three you see pictured:)  The rock shrimp tacos were a great addition too!

Matador Room – Miami, FL

Located in The Miami Beach EDITION Hotel, this is a restaurant not to miss while you’re in Miami.  You walk through the bar on your way to the dining room which is stunning in itself with floor to ceiling photos of matadors doing what they do best.  The colors are rich and inviting, definitely a swanky hangout for a drink and nibbles.

We sat outside on the terrace rather than in the main dining room which was very lovely and green with plants hanging above and all around.  Overall our meal was spectacular from start to finish.  So much fresh seafood, I could have eaten here every day.  Absolutely nothing about this meal was disappointing.
