Area 31 Chef John Critchley Loves The Dolphins

Yes, this post is full of Dolphin pictures, but first:

Chef John Critchley has made a strong impact on the local dining scene since joining up with Kimpton Hotel Group to head up all food operations at The Epic Hotel in downtown Miami. Area 31 was recently named an Esquire Magazine Best New Restaurant 2009, not to mention three Best Of's in the New Times.

Area 31 is committed to sustainable

seafood. The name comes from the United Nations designation for

the fishing area from which the restaurant draws its catch: the

Southeast Atlantic coast, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and

South America's northeast coast. All of Area 31's fish are short line

caught or farmed in sustainable waters.
