Pierre's

81600 Overseas Hwy. , MM 81.6, Bayside
Islamorada , FL , United States http://www.pierres-restaurant.com/
(305) 664-3225

This globally inspired French restaurant opened in 1999 at Moorings Village, a 20-acre, palm-lined property about midway through the Florida Keys. The two-story plantation-style house has a dining room with dark wood floors and teak tables upstairs, a lounge with mahogany bar and leather sofas downstairs, and an outside veranda overlooking Florida Bay. Chef Benjamin Loftus’ menu includes local hogfish Meuniere with fregola sarda and sautéed spaghetti squash, pan-seared sea scallops with maple-braised pork belly tortellini, and dry-aged New York strip steak au poivre. Pierre’s also has nightly specials that vary with the seasons and as inspiration strikes the kitchen.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Housed in a wooden structure modeled on a traditional Emirati home, this spot overlooking the Persian Gulf has amazing views of the man-made Palm Jumeirah island. The menu reflects its waterside setting with imaginatively prepared seafood, like seared scallops in crispy pancetta.

We loved: Wild sea bass with artichoke ravioli and saffron cream.

Insider tip: The terrace tables have the best views.
