This Allapattah market/restaurant is a staple in the Miami seafood scene. It's been around since 1980 and still serves some of the city's best seafood - in soups, ceviche, and fried to crispy perfection. They also have a seafood market that smells like a fishing pier and has fresh snapper, grouper, lobster, shrimp, and more sitting on ice, ready to come home with you. If you're not in the mood to cook, go order the fried shrimp and fried fish butterfly from the counter. Get a side of tostones and rice and whisper a small prayer of gratitude to Poseidon while you dip all of the above into the house "pink sauce," which tastes like it was specially designed by NASA scientists to go with fried seafood.

Monty’s Raw Bar

Monty’s in Coconut Grove feels like a Key West raw bar, minus the annoying drive. Come here for the views, but don’t expect the city’s best seafood.
