Save Scotty's Landing: Best Waterfront Eats in Miami

Former Miami City Manager Donald Warshaw ate there. So did ex-City Manager Cesar Odio. And ex-City Commissioner Miller Dawkins sometimes enjoyed the ocean breeze. Oh yeah, and ex-City Commissioner Humberto Hernandez, too.

Come to think of it. pretty much every indicted city official in history has sat on those plastic chairs at Coconut Grove's Scotty's Landing, looked out to sea and probably thought: What the hell have I done?

As Andres Viglucci pointed out in the Herald this morning, the city is looking for a new developer of the digs just north of Pan American Way. Scotty's is going to apply, but probably won't win. This is a tragedy.

Miami has too few good, informal waterfront eateries, Scotty's is my personal favorite -- and that of any Grove habitue with lungs.

So let's start a petition drive. Save Scotty's now!
