Before Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis were Miami restaurant royalty, they set sail on a fishing trip from South Beach late one sunny afternoon in the fall of 2013. The blond Barbie and Ken look-alikes motored west toward the Miami landmark Stiltsville and kissed for the first time. Now married, McInnis and Booth are behind Sunset Harbour's Stiltsville Fish Bar, which opened in 2015. Housed inside a quaint 1940s structure, the warm, nautically inspired space is a lovely reminder of that fall afternoon. This is the place to bring your love, order the "big fish for two," and gaze toward the Sunset Harbour Yacht Club. You might just find the same kind of luck Booth and McInnis found. Insider tip: Just about every seafood restaurant offers a seafood tower, but Stiltsville serves a seafood tackle box. A vintage tackle box is filled with all manner of jewels of the sea, such as oysters, Florida lobster tail, royal red shrimp, and local snapper ceviche.
