Key West, the good and bad.

jspear | Apr 18, 2009 10:35 AM

Spent a glorious week in Key West. Loved the weather and the food. Some bad to report but mostly great. Inn we stayed in recommended the Roof Top Cafe but we were originally put off by the look from the street. Second recommendation was Hot Tin Roof. We were travelling with a celiac and needed gf. Call to HTR, never returned, second call, still no answer. Called RTC and got a great reception. We ate there twice, great tomato salads and unusual ceasars as well as two great special salads, one with pear, one with duck and seaweed. Both masterfully combined. Lots of seafood, scallops cooked to perfection, bison strip, great surf, surf and turf, lobster, shrimp and fillet, can't quite get used to the warm water lobster (from Maine) but dish was great. Topped off with key lime pie and two gf dessert, choc torte and a custard, both great. Service top notch, drinks ample and well presented. Highly recommend. Still waiting to hear from HTR, maybe business is so good they don't have to worry???
