December 19, 2013
Members of The Daily Meal’s Culinary Content Network share their food-related tips for visiting the Florida Keys
Try Yellow Tail Snapper
Yellow tail snapper is only available in the Keys! Whether you go fishing for it, buy it fresh at the grocery store, or order it at a local restaurant, yellow tail is a fish you should try wherever you are in the keys, according to our CCN contributor.
Grab Brunch at Blue Heaven Restaurant
Order a banana heaven dessert martini and grab a bite of shrimp and grits at Blue Heaven Restaurant in Key West. Here, the vibe is casual and the food is delicious. Warning: Watch out for the chickens as they run the roost and apparently like to "chat" with one another.
Dine at Café Marquesa
Café Marquesa at the Marquesa Hotel in Key West is considered by members of our Culinary Content Network to be the best restaurant for dining in Key West and is also the highest-rated restaurant in the area on Zagat. Menu items such as the macadamia-crusted yellowtail snapper and conch and blue crabcakes keep guests coming back every trip.
Stop for Dessert at Better Than Sex
For those with a desire for sweets, Better Than Sex, a dessert restaurant in Key West, is a must. With dessert names such as "Between My Red Velvet Sheets" cheesecake, "Fork-You Fondue," and "Caramel Over Me," you don’t want to miss out on this dessert heaven.
Compare Key Lime Pie
Nearly every restaurant and food shop in the keys claims, "We have the best Key lime pie!" Stop in and see for yourself which one is really the best.
Dine on Duval Street
In Key West, anyone will tell you that the best places to eat are located off Duval Street.
