Florida Keys Restaurants
1075 Duval St., Key West
Not nearly as touristy as other Duval Street spots, this refreshingly theme-free spot serves the kind of elegant dishes (tartines, dumplings, carpaccios) and craft cocktails you can’t really find elsewhere on the island. It’s been around for 25 years, but the clean, modern décor doesn’t show it one bit. The weekend brunch is so good they start serving it on Wednesday. You’ll want to make a reservation.
58000 Card Sound Rd., Key Largo, FL
Seafood is understandably abundant here, and there’s really no better place for conch fritters than Alabama Jack’s in Key Largo. But you should come here just as much for the ambiance as as the food as it’s a bit of a haul from Key West. It looks like a standard roadside dive (there are dedicated motorcycle parking spots out front) except that it sits on a floating barge with insane views of the creek and neighboring mangroves. Come on a weekend for live music and dancing.
