While we tend to take it for granted, water is actually kinda awesome: you can drink it, bathe in it, and even use it to defeat Eco-Villians, assuming Ma-Ti and his stupid monkey don't eff everything up again. For an eatery taking full advantage of H2O, dock at The Water Club
Sitting on the Intercoastal Waterway (just north of Haulover inlet and across from Sunny Isle), and boasting room for 50 boats, WC's got a 70-yard deck plus a pool and bar outside, while inside there're sprawling tiers of party-friendly banquettes, water views galore, and a huge mural homaging Lenny Kravitz, Miami Vice, the '70s Dolphins, Scarface, and David Caruso, who may have lil' friends, but they certainly don't include the writers of CSI. YEAAAAAHHHHH!!!! The award-winning (and married!) chefs behind Talula're lovingly cranking out apps like crispy fried oysters with watermelon-blackened salsa & green chili aioli and Maine lobster salad with citrus-mint mayo & chili marmalade, while the raw bar's loaded with Top Neck clams and oyster varietals like Malpeque, Blue Point, Kumamota, and Tatamagouche, also Joe E. Tata's given name, which his agent told him he had to change if he wanted to reach "and" status. Entrees include grilled ahi tuna glazed with sweet soy chili sauce plus land critters like a center-cut pork chop braised and pan-seared with bacon, collard greens, and bourbon brown butter; the coveted spinalis rib steak (the most marbleized part of the ribeye); and the Hang Over, a burger with fried eggs, pickled chilis, sauteed onions, cheddar, bacon, and Mike Tyson, but you already knew that from the trailer
WC's got the goods to be a pretty serious boozin' locale, with eventual late-night hours, a 450-bottle-strong wine room, and specialty drinks like a roster of mojitos (spicy coconut, honey orange grapefruit), and the Miami Vice, comboing rum with strawberry daiquiri and pina colada -- with their powers combined you are Captain...Embarrassing.
