Miami New Times' Description

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.

    Stunning views of downtown and a menu featuring only seafood caught in the restaurant's namesake, an area the UN has designated as an official, ecologically sustainable fishing spot. [Eater 38 Member]

  • AskMen on 06/18/10

    From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. during its new Hot Summer Nights happy hour, the restaurant offers $5 cocktails (caipirinhas, margaritas), plus a $5-$11 “bites” menu. Ladies drink free, so bring a date.

    Havana Nights on the last Friday of every month begins tomorrow & continues through September. From 6 PM to midnight, get Atlantico Rum cocktails at half price while also enjoying free Camacho Cigars.

  • @MisterHirsch on 06/10/10

    Beautiful spot to have a cocktail and look-out over the city (ie NYC or Chicago).
