Favorite Dining Establishment on the Rock

Post by CrznDnUS1 »

I am sure this has been addressed many times before but I couldn't find it, plus they also change from time to time.
So what is your favorite place for dining place on Key West?
Ours is Louie's Backyard aft deck... (with a close second being Martins on Duval)

First thought... they have food in Key West? I only remember drinking! lol

But then I remembered Blue Heaven for breakfast... with delicious Mary's and Mosa's! lol

Then El Siboney crossed my mind, and I realize I forgot my lunch today, so maybe I'll try the new cuban restaurant, Congri, by my office.

a #1, black beans and yellow rice, and a Presidente or Negra Modelo to wash it down... always makes the trip complete.

Mangia Mangia. But the place that said "Key West" to me was the Dennis Pharmacy lunch counter.

it's not bad, and it has some good memories, but there are better ones, especially now that IHO seems to be bent on going the "Hard Rock Cafe" route. I'll take hole-in-the-wall joints. more than 6 blocks away from Mallory seems to keep the cruise-ship commandos to a minimum.

one other one that comes to mind, not quite as good as El Sib, but interesting in that it is a guy running an art gallery AND Cuban restaurant right at MM1.

Just in case what? Jimmy runs out of money? Just kidding...
Lots of people are mentioning a few spots but I was looking for everyone to narrow it down to only one favorite on the island, which is much harder than just listing you favorites, lol.
