Quinn’s South Beach

April 12, 2010

Living in South Beach, I rarely do one thing; eat at the restaurants on Ocean Drive. Well, sometimes, you have to keep your mind open and try something different or new. I am also going to do my best and not hate too much. My girlfriend and I stopped by at Quinn’s South Beach (640 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139). Zagat rates this place as 25 in the food category. Located right on the beautiful but touristy, Ocean Drive. We were able to get a seat outside next to the heaters (it was cold in Miami that night).

Quinn’s specializes in contemporary American cuisine (aka, Steaks, Seafood, and Raw Bar). As we were not too hungry, we went right into the entrees. We ordered the blackened grouper ($32) and Quinn’s signature dish, the Caribbean snapper ($30). A pro of the entrees is that it comes with sides. The blackened grouper came with lobster mashed potatoes, baby vegetables, and mango-papaya-lime relish. Their signature dish, snapper spiced with 14 different spice mixture and palm sugar came with grilled plantains, chayote (similar to a summer squash), with black bean salsa, topped with their orange sauce. What can I say? It was standard, nothing special, just another crappy typical Miami dish. (That may have been a little rough).

We also ordered their crème brulee afterwards, which again was standard.

Service itself was again standard. Nothing else to add.

I guess if you are a tourist, it’s a pretty cool place to sit and people watch, otherwise, go somewhere else.
