Biscayne Tavern's Fare Pairs Perfectly With a Cold Drink

Smoked salmon spring rolls aren't the obvious choice at Biscayne Tavern, a downtown restaurant that peddles more fried potatoes than lox. So when your waiter says he prefers the dish over the "crispy Gulf shrimp dynamite," you order the rolls halfheartedly and glare at the shrimp platters passing by.

But then the appetizer arrives at the table. Its cream cheese interior still shimmers from the fryer's heat. You take a bite. Bursting with rich flavors, the brittle crust scorches your lips. The spring rolls taste like the best deep-fried bagel you've ever had.
