Joe's Stone Crab
You know about Joe’s Stone Crab, everyone does, Miami-based or not. Joe’s is a South Beach institution, and for over a century has been one of the city’s most famous restaurants. The old-school, art deco space is full of servers in tuxedos and stone crab claws that somehow taste sweeter here than anywhere else in the city. All sorts of other seafood dishes, as well as steaks, fried chicken, and standard steakhouse sides (if you don't get the Lyonnaise potatoes, you're making a huge mistake) make up the all-star menu that draws crowds, celebrities included, to its dining room on Washington Avenue. And what would a Miami Beach mainstay be without key lime pie? Joe’s knows, and it does it the best.
