South Beach Dining

I'll be spending some time in the Keys next month and finishing the trip with a few days in SB..around Collins and 10th. The food scene changes there frequently so I'm looking for some updates. I'll give a few I've enjoyed in the past and maybe someone can add a few..or ding a few. Probably not really wanting to break the bank..and apps at a few places is fine for dinner. No car and prefer not to travel too far; but will if there's a good reason. Probably not too interested in Italian/Asian..plenty of that in Boston.

Puerta Sagua..this and Chalan are usual stops
Chalan on the Beach
Dave's Cafe..has the original reopened?
Joe's/Take Away..always go but 1 week in the keys, I'll probably get my fill of stone crabs
Nemo..have enjoyed for years but generally go for lunch
Talula..enjoyed but wasn't blown away
Table 8..had just opened my last trip and didn't try it..should I..another new place in that same area; name escapes me...eta Vix
Prime 112..been there for a drink..didn't care for the crowded vibe
Taverna Opa..been to the 1 in if not mind blowing food

Wish..have enjoyed in the past..still good?
Johnny V's..closed? menu was ok..didn't make it to dr
Tap there late Sunday..they were out of most of the menu and we walked..worth trying?

Alta Mer..never been but remember reading good things

New names to me Sardinia? Grazianos Argentine ( worth a cab ride?) probably don't want to haul myself to Michael's Genuine....though I remember his food at the original Nemo; Michy's..again enjoyed her cooking in the past but it looks like it's a haul from SB.

Apology for throwing out a lot of names; but I'll return the favor if you're ever up this way..:)

Any comments on my list are welcome..we'll have 4 nights and try to mix it up..casual/higher end.
