I moved to Miami back in the 1970’s. I felt like I was living in paradise with blue skies, beautiful beaches, and great food. During my first year living in Miami, some of my friends took me to The Rusty Pelican for my birthday. Located on Key Biscayne in the Miami Bay, this restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy all that contemporary Miami has to offer.
The Rusty Pelican has a phenomenal view of Miami across the Miami Bay. I fell in love with the food, service and view. I recommend going just before sunset and watching the city turn from day to night. Monday through Friday there is a happy hour from 4 PM to 7 PM and the place is packed. Try the agave sunset shown below.
Have a drink and watch the skies change.
The restaurant offers eclectic and impressive contemporary American cuisine and fresh local seafood. After a $9 million dollar renovation 6 years ago, it is even more expensive than in previous decades. The menu is now expensive to very expensive. You can go for less at lunch time or happy hour to check it out. Oysters on the half shell anyone?
Try the tequila marinated organic chicken. Yum!
Their Key Lime pie is a work of art.
When in Miami, Florida, drive over the Rickenbacker Causeway to Key Biscayne and stop for a drink and view.
Thanks for sharing one of my favorite places in Miami. For more information and professional photos, see their website, The Rusty Pelican.
