Tavern N Town

3841 North Roosevelt Blvd. , Marriot Beachside Key West

(305) 296-8100

Located inside the Marriott Beachside Hotel, Tavern N Town chefs craft seasonal breakfast and dinner cuisine behind the Tapas Theater Kitchen, an open-air kitchen surrounded by mosaic stone-colored tile, which takes center stage along one entire wall. A sand-colored marble floor and long bar along with high-backed tropical-print booths complete the understated island appearance. Diners can witness starters being made, such as Wagyu beef sliders and drunken P.E.I. mussels, plus specialties like the coffee chipotle-crusted pork tenderloin, select yellowtail snapper, and New York strip. Nightly entertainment is also provided.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Toni Simoes, 25, who cooked for the Michelin three-starred Catalan specialist Santi Santamaria, recently opened this inspired neighborhood tapas bar. His small plates, rooted in Catalan <em>nueva cocina</em>, are made with a bevy of global ingredients—for instance, he adds shiso leaves to a tuna-belly salad.

We loved: Breaded mini goat chops with wild mushrooms.

Insider tip: The bar has a brilliant selection of Catalan farmhouse cheeses.
