Sardines in Miami

2top | Aug 23, 2010 12:49 PM

I love sardines and hunt for them in restaurants in and around Miami. La Bon on Lincoln Road served a good dish of these sustainables way back when. I was disappointed not long ago at Valentino Sul Mare in North Beach which offers “the iconic Sicilian dish pasta con sarde [is] available here made with sardines sourced in Delray Beach.” I couldn’t find any evidence of a fresh sardine on the plate.

But last week a friend of mine coaxed me into stopping at Old Lisbon on Coral Way, a restaurant I have passed by hundreds of times, for a late night bite. She promised a delicious sardine plate and she was right. We both had a plate of 6 thick plump Sardinhas Grelhadas, Grilled Portuguese Sardines $8.95. They also offer them sautéed with onions. We shared Berenjenas Recheadas ao Forno Oven cooked, Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Eggplant, served with fried Potatoes. $15.95. A $33 bottle of Portuguese red wine completed a perfect meal.

Anyone have any new leads?
