Dining and Restaurant Guide in The Florida Kys
Visitors to the Florida Keys, as vacationers everywhere, want to sample the local cuisine of their vacation spot, and the offerings of Keys dining emporiums are enough to please the most discriminating palate.
The availability of fresh seafood plays an important part in the menus of most Keys restaurants. Key West pink shrimp, familiarly known as â€œpink gold,â€ are served in a variety of ways in the many seafood restaurants throughout the Keys. From simple diners to five star elaborate resort dining rooms, shrimp, mahi mahi, yellowtail, and other ocean delights are popular choices among diners both local and visiting.
But the dining facilities in the Keys are not restricted to seafood. Cuban specialties such as yellow rice and black beans, spicy Jamaican cuisine, Japanese, Bahamian, Thai, French, Greek, and Italian authentic native dishes are available throughout the Keys.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, according to many nutritionists, and many restaurants have become famous for their morning selections. A variety of omelettes, crepes, and other early-morning selections is just waiting for you to make your choice.
There are steak houses, small diners, al fresco restaurants, elaborate hotel and resort dining rooms serving almost any variety of food for the most discerning guest. Anything from roast beef and mashed potatoes to jambalaya to moussaka to gumbo to fresh shellfish to the lightest, fluffiest of soufflÃ©s can be found at the plethora of restaurants in the Florida Keys.
And donâ€™t forget dessert. Many eateries offer the Keysâ€™ famous Key lime pie, and until you have tasted it, you donâ€™t know what youâ€™ve been missing. Or you might want to try Key lime ice cream â€“ but donâ€™t go away without a sampling of the Keysâ€™ most famous fruit.
