Miami: Stone Crabs
Multicultural. Melting pot. Utter Madness. Call it what you will, but Miami has become a true multicultural hub, and has the international fare to prove it. But, even with an array of eclectic influences, the dish worth braving the Miami airport for, is the unrivaled, oh-so-fresh seafood. And, more specifically, the sweet, succulent Stone Crab.
Florida’s Stone Crab Season is October 15 to May 15 and this real Miami vice brings locals and tourists alike to the beaches in droves. Why? One taste and you’ll understand. The classic claws are often served very simply: on ice with mustard, butter and lemon. Oh, and a bib. Because even in the fanciest of establishments, you gotta get “hands on” to get the meat out of these claws. But just like the beach bods that line the shore, it’s worth all the hard work.
