Description

Miami New Times' Description

The famed restaurant has changed hands again. Food that formerly could be considered sort of Spanish is now sort of Italian. The emphasis, however, is still on seafood; only two appetizers, one pasta, and one entrée are nonfish dishes. Prices also are higher, with starters running from $7.50 to $12, pastas and rice $13 to $19, and entrées $18.50 to $27.50. These prices are deceptive, as most single items feed two. But just like before, the true attraction is Big Fish's setting -- spectacular, in a raffish way. With the neon-accented Metrorail glowing off to the left, the lights of downtown Miami just across the river, a drawbridge to the right, and all sorts of river traffic (freighters, fishing boats, luxury yachts, hungry pelicans) directly in their faces, diners get a fascinating instant-camera visual insight into Miami's dual nature: tropical beach-party playground and working shipping/fishing port.
