“Celery Root Potato Mash, Mango-Mint Beurre Blanc, Olive Oil, Roasted Mussels, Baby Bok Choy”
Al and I decided to go away for the weekend. Seeing as how I have never really visited Miami Beach, we decided to make it our weekend destination.
South Beach is known for their gorgeous, tanned super humans, sandy white beaches, and vibrant nightclubs. Or you may think about Miami Vice. Miami/South Beach is so rich of different cultures it is no wonder there is an abundance of fusion restaurants and cuisines from all over the world.
One of the places we wanted to try was called A Fish Called Avalon. It is located in the Avalon Hotel on Oceans Drive. The hotel and restaurant is directly across from the beach so if you are a people watcher or just want to enjoy the nice ocean breeze, ask to be seated outside. Be sure to make a reservation though.
This is place is on the pricier side but worth it. Their portions are fair and the quality is outstanding.
Here is what we tried:
Pearleen: Miso-Glazed Seabass. The dish is described as “Celery Root Potato Mash, Mango-Mint Beurre Blanc, Olive Oil, Roasted Mussels, Baby Bok Choy”
Al: Twin Whole Maine Lobster. Described as “Steamed and Cracked, Drawn Butter, Lemon Wedge”
My seabass was a rich and melt-in-your-mouth fish. The miso-glazed crust and the mango-mint sauce complimented the buttery flavors of the fish very nicely.
