Eat tapas at Santiago’s Bodega
An undeniably warm ambiance lulls you into Santiago’s Bodega, which trades Key West’s typical seafood fare for Mediterranean-style small plates. Swing by for happy hour—happening daily from 3 to 6pm—to throw back half-off wine and fresh sangria with the locals, then stick around for a candle-lit dinner spread that you won’t find on hectic Duval Street. The menu includes more than two dozen tapas. Sure-bets include the seared beef tenderloin that’s drowned in a rich blue cheese butter, and the yellowfin tuna ceviche: big chunks of fish marinated in spicy citrus juice, served chilled with avocado, mango and cilantro.
