just read through old posts on aventura, doesn't seem to be a lot of new info here, seems like the same short list of places gets recommended by the same few posters...is there a shortage of posters on this board--because I'm in NYC but get down there 1x a year, and like to try a couple new places---I usually go to Joe's, for stone crabs, but who else has good stone crabs, I know about Captain Jim's, but it's a fish market--and billy's I hear mixed things about--last year at Joe's, couldn't believe it, but got 2 plates of crabs with sticky shells--frozen, was quite shocked--and it's just so pricey, I can't understand how the quality could even be questionable--i didn't want to cause a scene with the people I was with, but frankly, if I had been dining there alone, I would've sent them all back, and asked for a manager to complain..but I do need my stone crab fix, and can't take them to go, because people I stay with are kosher..---so, is there another restuarant to get them--in one of these areas....--I love Miami Juice on collins and eat there a lot for lunch, and grab tuna at Epicure--and I love Barrio Latino in Waterways, food is always great and reasonable---and they have killer chimichurri--I'm used to really authentic great thai up in ny so I don't bother to look for thai there, but old school miami chinese would be good...sang's is my husband's favorite he goes there for black bean razor clams--but it's a bit dingy for me--any other more upscale places in the nmb vicinity or elsewhere...what about Indian? Are there any good spots, Turkish?, Greek (been to place in design district, expensive, and loud place, with table dancing opa,--don't like)--been to overpriced pasta spot near Yakko san--and been to yakko san, but those that I am with not into this kind of stuff---eat at anthony's coal over and happy to have them in nYC, ---used to go to pilar a lot but they changed their menu, scallops are still great..but it's limited...--gosh I do miss the old school restaurants of old miami....talking 1960's-70's--still dream of the brandy snaps at arthur's eating house--any suggestions welcome thanks
