A Fish Called Avalon's New Florida Spiny Lobster Plates

A Fish Called Avalon has been serving up some of the best seafood on South Beach for 20 years and counting. Now, to celebrate lobster season executive chef Brian Cantrell has come up with 4 new dishes, (2 apps, 2 mains) to celebrate.

The new dishes all use Florida spiny lobster, the clawless reef huggers hiding in the rocks right now during lobster mini season, the last Wednesday and Thursday of July each year when it's open season on the succulent bastards.

Here are Chef Brian's newest lobster additions to the Fish Called Avalon menu...
