What’s baking at the Dirty Pig

KEY WEST CUISINE


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 […]

That’s amore! at Clemente’s Wood Fired Pizza

There’s a secret at 516 Fleming St. It is kept behind a long street-front window that spans the entire width of the intimate restaurant, where a wood-fired oven as big as a hobbit’s house monopolizes the small space. But it is not just about what it does, that it magically transforms a mixture of salt, flour and oil into a […]

Coffee and Glorie at Coffee Plantation



But first, coffee. You know a girl can’t start her day off right without a strong cup of joe. Lucky for me, Key West is home to Coffee Plantation. Located at 713 Caroline St., Coffee Plantation is a coffee lover’s haven open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.. on Sundays. Coffee Plantation […]

A Stock Island superfood revolution


Early mornings usually start right around noon for Olivia Binek, an island transplant from Poland who bartended her way to her current, modern day girl boss status. Her food truck The Raw Machine is open six days a week and she works the graveyard shift at a local bar three days a week, which leaves little time for anything else. […]

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 […]

Pinchers is paradise for seafood lovers


You rememer Sally who used to sell seashells by the seashore? Well, that old broad retired and is now selling crabs on Duval Street. 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. Don’t let the Duval Street […]

Filling up on favorites at Sister Noodle House

KEY WEST CUISINE


Nestled in an unassuming strip mall in New Town, Sister Noodle House is as far from the flash of Duval Street as you can get. But with huge portions of arguably some of the best Asian cuisine on the island at über affordable prices, it should be on everyone’s radar. I quickly became a fan after my first meal here. […]

Fuel your body at Date & Thyme


Late-night Mary Ellen’s fries and the inevitable Mr. Z’s pizza to soak up all of those Corona Lights and shots of Patrón might have sounded like an excellent idea last night, but today is a new day and chances are your stomach and liver are in need of a cleanse. The words “healthy” and “Key West” don’t often show up […]

Grub for Key West night owls



I’m a night owl. Always have been. I don’t generally eat a big breakfast when I wake up, maybe coffee and a bagel. Late lunch is around 5 or 6 p.m., and dinner is as late as I can find something decent open, generally between 9 and 11 p.m. I’ve been this way since I was a teenager, and I […]
