This sleek South Beach eatery in the refurbished Avalon Hotel combines minimalist decor with topnotch cuisine. The menu makes use of local sea bounty and is influenced by Asian and Caribbean cooking styles. Look for signature dishes such as "bang bang shrimp" (jumbos marinated in curry and served with minted yogurt) and caramelized Caribbean snapper (accompanied by grilled chayote, plantains, and a black bean/corn salsa). Homemade espresso ice cream provides for a kick of a dessert.
