The restaurant takes its name and gathers much of its menu from Fishing Area 31, an ecologically productive swath of the Atlantic Ocean that encompasses the coastal waters of Florida, Central America, and northern South America. 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 Epic Hotel. The terrace is 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 butternut risotto with kale, pine nuts, and Parmesan shavings, as well as the ceviche, gravlax, and carpaccio. 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 for options — just cast your line with Area 31.
