Made my second visit to Leftovers Cafe last night with my wife.
Fun atmosphere, absolutely excellent service, wide craft beer selection, and a great selection of inventive takes on Florida / Carribean seafood with a few Asian / Indian touches.
* Panko Fried Oysters over greens, mixed fruit, blue cheese, & sambal aioli. 5 out of 5 stars. A must get app. Good for sharing or actually it could be a light main. This is on regular menu.
* Cigar City Black Lager marinated Wahoo Ceviche w/ red wine vinegar, lemon, lime, honey + tempura banana. 5 out of 5 stars. (In the photo this is already half gone, could not wait). The tempura banana - off the chain. I think this app was a special.
* Ziti Special w shrimp, scallops, leeks, apple, mushrooms & sweet peppers in a roadted pecan sundried tomato cream / w blue cheese. 4 out of 5 stars. Excellent but after the previous two lighter dishes this was a bit heavy (we were already getting full). This was a special, main.
* Tandoori Grilled Scallops over papaya, sweet pepper, jicama salad w avacado coulis and arugula. 5 out of 5.
Any questions we had about our food, our server Jerit sounded like he was working in the kitchen. He knew every detail. All timing was perfect. Staff all look like they are having fun.
This may now be our favorite South Florida restaurant. (If you own or work in a restaurant (or are thinking of doing so), you may want to visit here and get some ideas on how to make your place even better).
Hat tip to Freaker for evangelizing this place so much I finally had to go.
More info, best bet is their Facebook page. They post new menu daily. The website is a bit of a mess. Open Mon-Sat 11AM-9PM.
