Fresh seafood in a famous Miami restaurant

Joe's Stone Crab

An American seafood restaurant

Considering that Miami is a coastal city, the very long list of culinary recommendations just has to include a restaurant where you can tuck into a plate of fresh seafood. The most famous, most legendary and the oldest is Joe’s Stone Crab. This family-run restaurant is located in Miami Beach, where it was originally founded in 1913. Before going, a word of advice: be prepared to wait. They don’t take bookings, so, although it’s not cheap, it is so busy that you normally have to wait a while for a table. Once you get a table, expect a truly authentic seafood menu. You can choose between lobster, oysters, mussels, salmon, squid, prawns, sword fish, scallops... Having said that, the most traditional thing to order is a plate of stone crabs (the crabs after which the restaurant is named) which comprises a serving of several crab claws (that’s right, they only serve the claws). The claws come from crabs which live in the waters around the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico. On your marks, get set, go! Licking your fingers is allowed. (
