Key West’s top restaurants reach far beyond fried shrimp and burgers. You’ll do best to look for a menu featuring both imported
ingredients and local seafood. Try Nine One Five (915 Duval Street; 305/296-0669 or 915duval.com), Key West’s best gourmet option, featuring award-winning fusion preparations like clams with imported chorizo. If the weather’s
good, aim for a table on the porch.
Or visit Café Marquesa (600 Fleming Street; 305/292-1244 or marquesa.com), part of the casual yet elegant Marquesa Hotel. Menu items emphasize local ingredients; the macadamia-crusted yellowtail is sure to please.
