Waxy's On the River (690 SW First Court, Miami) is a Key West-styled Irish pub that specializes in fish. They shoot for a neighborhood joint feeling and are proud to showcase buzzworthy local acts like ArtOfficial, and Locos Por Juana, through their midweek live music bookings.
The restaurant is located on the ground floor, riverside (opposite Andu), of Brickell's Neo Vertika building.
Executive Chef Reginald Collier, who at age 25 was named executive chef of Doraku South Beach, a popular sushi place, also worked in Orlando at a Disney kitchen that saw several hundred covers a day.
He says of the food, "You can tell a chef made it. Fine dining will never leave my heart. That's my passion and I bring those touches to the food here."
