Key West Dining


Stay cool with Keys Coffee Company

Welcome to another Key West summer, when it rains every day for 30 minutes and the breeze is as cool as a hair dryer set on high heat blowing two inches from your face. It’s four months of being hit by a heat wave every time you step out of the door. Your tongue parches, your eyes burn, the sweat […]

What’s baking at the Dirty Pig


The intoxicating scent of a carefully tended woodchip fire will hit you long before you reach the doors of 320 Grinnell St., but the smoke of authentic BBQ is not the only aroma tempting your senses as you approach the corner building. Underneath the fragrant layer of America’s cuisine, a powdery cloud of flour and sugar rising together in an […]

Lucky #7: Sushi Song opens in Key West

I am here with my husband at a high top table facing Duval Street, and no one knows that I am here except for all the people that I have my back turned to. The place is full, to the point that we get seated at this very high top table away from the majority of the crowd, but I […]

The Dahl House and the evolution of ‘Lunchville’

Catch them if you can — the wonder boys of Key West’s ethnic education have brought the flavors of the world to our little corner of the globe again, this time with an entirely different theme but with a story that is just as much worth telling. It’s been heard all over town for years. The lustful wishing and the […]

Her new joint, Pinchers Crab Shack, is in the heart of Old Town Key West at 712 Duval St. It’s your go-to dining hot-spot for seafood and a laid-back island atmosphere.
