On a white tablecloth, bright red slices of tuna steal glances from everyone in the vicinity before a plate of king crab legs arrives to take over the show. Kone takes its culinary inspiration from the food of the Japanese immigrant community in Rio de Janeiro, resulting a seafood-driven menu that fuses colors, flavors, and ingredients from distant points of the globe. A typical meal here might open with lobster tempura maki or Gulf oysters served fresh on the half-shell. But it's hard to ignore the lengthy list of housemade pastas, from classic lasagna to gnocchi bolognese. As they dine on the open-air patio, diners mingle over mojitos and wine, taking in the surrounding ambiance of Espanola Way's palm-lined streets, the restaurant's charming cafe-style facade, and the distant wail of jealous seagulls.

In addition to saying AltaMare has ?the freshest fish in town,? South Beach Magazine, praised owner Claudio Gordano for creating a ?menu that showcases the best catches from local fishing boats intermingled with classic Italian dishes.? Diners can feast on battered local yellow-eye snapper blanketed with cucumber cr?me fra?che or lightly seared wahoo plated with baby artichokes and arugula.

Not to be outdone by the entrees, many of the desserts are creative takes on classic dishes: a ?ceviche? swaps seafood for a m?lange of tropical fruits swimming in citrus dressing, and the deconstructed tiramisu combines mascarpone mousse, ladyfingers, and shots of espresso and Bailey?s.

When sitting on the umbrella-shaded patio of CJ's Crab Shack, it is easy to get lost in the beach scene. Situated across the street from Lummus Park and a hop, skip, and a tumble from the ocean, the patio is a great place to relax with a frozen drink and one of the house's signature surf 'n' turf meals. Dishes include juicy steaks with shrimp tossed in garlic or Cajun sauce or glistening snow-crab legs.

At Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse, it’s not unusual to spot a movie star sipping martinis or a politician savoring their first bite of a juicy porterhouse. And the menu at this classic American steakhouse—which operates in eight cities across America—is just as impressive as the clientele it attracts. At each location, an Executive Chef expertly prepares USDA Prime dry-aged steaks and stacks shellfish bouquets with lobster, oysters, and other marine delicacies flown in fresh daily. Savor classic cocktails or choose from an award-winning wine list, which includes Smith & Wollensky's exclusive Private Reserve Cuvée Meritage or Sauvignon Blanc. And if you want an excuse to linger, each location's resident Pastry Chef whips up mouthwatering specialty desserts, featuring the Gigantic Chocolate Cake and Coconut Layer Cake.

Don't Miss:

  • The Steak. The USDA Prime steaks are dry-aged for up to 28 days and butchered in house by Smith & Wollensky's chefs, which means diners can expect tender and well-marbled cuts. 
  • The Seafood. The restaurant's fresh seafood is arranged in tiered towers of ice-cold oysters, crabmeat, and littleneck clams or in starters like a colorful column of tuna tartare.
  • The Wine. Wine Spectator consistently honors Smith & Wollensky’s sophisticated wine lists with top ratings and their "Award of Excellence."
