While most folks will never get out to one of those fabled wood-stilt houses off Biscayne Bay, they now can savor a fresh catch straight from those waters at Stiltsville. Inspired by chef and co-owner Jeff McInnis’s childhood spent fishing in the panhandle and Florida’s abundant marine life, the Sunset Harbour restaurant specializes in locally sourced seafood with a modern twist. Here, he and partner/chef Janine Booth turn basic fare into something exciting—think smoked oysters, pimento cheese croquettes and spoonable corn bread piled with fresh lobster. Sides and small starters—such as the scallops with plantain chips, cobia ceviche with sour orange and mofongo—introduce some Latin flair to the otherwise American menu.
