Sorry this is long overdue- I really appreciate all the help from this board in finding great eats-
My wife and I took a long overdue vacation to South Beach Miami for one night- driving to Key West for 6 more nights-
We had a great night in South Beach- shopped around and had a really good dinner at Hosteria Romana- artichoke appetizer was wonderful, antipasto was awesome and we took advantage of a couple of great specials- grilled lobster for her- and homemade pasta w/lobster for me- some of the best pasta I've ever had and it was eating in the midst of an Italian street fair- I can't wait to go back-
Key West was great- it was right after the hurricane and they cleaned up nicely- we stayed at a B&B on the water and though the breakfast that they provided was simple- it was the perfect start- eating near the water and planning our day-
We found great eats at Alonzo's, the Half Shell, Mangoes and a new Italian restaurant that I really reccommend called Carmine's.
A few places that I really wanted to hit like 7-Fish were closed due to vacation but hopefully there will be a next time- I thank you all for your help-
