100 Favorite Dishes: Sunday Fish Fry at The Shantel Lounge

As a countdown to New Times' "Best of Miami" 2010, Short Order is serving up 100 of our favorite dishes in the 305. Send your nominations to cafe@miaminewtimes.com.

87. Sunday Fish Fry at The Shantel Lounge

The Sunday fish fry at Shantel Lounge offers authentically great, downright cheap, Bahamian style fried fish served simply with bread, lime, and tartar. The skin is crisp, nearly greaseless, and the fish moist and flavorful. Veteran performers and musicians from Miami''s golden era in recorded music, the 70's and 80's, play their tunes outdoors adding unparalleled atmosphere. Highly recommended.
