Respond to stomach memorandums with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of contemporary American fare at Catch Grill + Bar in the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay hotel.
Catch Grill + Bar's menu beguiles palates with an assortment of shareable plates and a limited selection of customizable, freshly caught fish. Sample the high seas with appetizers such as the crispy glazed shrimp ($14) and ahi tuna tostones with guacamole and salsa ($15). Meanwhile, locally caught sea fare such as the red snapper ($30) or stone bass ($32) comes with myriad customization options: Get them char-grilled, blackened, or pan-seared or smothered in lemon cream or mango habanero. All are served with a side of fries and mashed potatoes, rice, or veggies, brought to the table by either a friendly waiter or a wisecracking Roomba.
