Monty’s Raw Bar
May 11, 2018
A Coconut Grove institution, Monty’s has been serving up super fresh seafood and top-notch cocktails for over 30 years. There’s an indoor dining room but the real party is at the outdoor raw bar – it’s less expensive for one thing and the atmosphere is much more fun. Both boast properly gorgeous views of the water, which is all part of the appeal and the raw bar also features calypso music, making it a lively place to spend an evening. The happy hour here is very, very popular with locals and it’s easy to see why. There is all manner of fresh sea food available including fresh stone crabs, their speciality, which come served on paper plates. This is a laid-back place, unstuffy and sun-washed, where the drink flows freely and the whole place exudes a cool Miami vibe. Soak up the ocean views with a glass or two of crisp white wine or a pitcher of something fruity to go with it. The key lime pie is also well worth your time.
