Miami Beach Restaurant Recommendations?

Dena | Nov 5, 199910:51 AM     9

My husband and I are going to Miami Beach for Thanksgiving and I'm looking for restaurant recommendations. I've looked through these postings and found a few, so I know for sure we'll be heading to Calle Ocho for some good Cuban food.

I've seen no mention of The Blue Door and wondered if anyone has any experience with the restaurant, since we've got Friday night dinner reservations there. All I've heard from a few friends is that it's very expensive and that they serve a terrific seared foie gras.

Also -- and truthfully -- is it worth standing in line for dinner at Joe's Stone Crab? Is there any place in the area that serves conch chowder and/or conch fritters?

Any suggestions for a place to go for Thanksgiving dinner? It doesn't have to be fancy (who wants to get all dressed up?) or expensive or traditional. Just something kinda special...

Thanks in advance for your input.
