The restaurant takes its name and gathers much of its menu from Fishing Area 31, an ecologically sustainable swath of western central Atlantic Ocean encompassing the coastal waters of Florida, Central America, and northern South America. And as with any good fishing spot, Area 31 is far removed from the hustle and bustle of civilization -- tucked away on the 16th floor of downtown Miami's new Epic Hotel and resplendent in a natural palette of wood, glass, stone, textiles, and patinaed metals. An outdoor terrace situated amid a scintillating urban vista of skyscrapers and waterways is likewise enchanting, but the pristine seafood preparations are the real reason to head here fast. Whether choosing from a half-dozen daily wood-grilled catches or more complicated dishes such as salt-crusted dorade, you'll find the results stunningly fresh and delicious. Other worthy hauls include a salad of octopus tossed with fried cubes of pork belly and fresh hearts of palm; thin strands of chittara pasta tangled in spicy crab ragout redolent of fried garlic; and a mighty tasty grilled leg of lamb. Most entrées are in the upper $20 range, with only dorade, lobster, and veal milanese topping $30. The wine list, cocktails, and service are also impressive. The next time you seek a great seafood dinner, there's no need to go fishing about for options -- just cast your line with Area 31.

Pigs and chickens belong on farms; fish should come from bodies of water. Yet as our favorite seafoods are being grilled and pan-seared to extinction, more and more species are raised in huge, sinister, Matrix-like farms. Not the fish at Area 31. The restaurant takes its name and many of its products from Fishing Area 31, a United Nations-sanctioned, ecologically sustainable swath of the Western Central Atlantic Ocean. Chef John Critchley takes daily catches such as Spanish mackerel,... More »
