There is a moment right after a Key West sunset when the loud reds and oranges have gone, and what remains are the soft silver-blues of the sky merging with the sea. This is your visual appetizer for dinner at Hot Tin Roof at the Ocean Key Resort and Spa.
No dining room on the island gives you a better view of sunset, Key West harbor, and the Gulf, so get there early to enjoy it. By the time it’s dark out, you’ll be so distracted by the scenery and journeys on the table, you may well forget the world outside.
The kitchen at Hot Tin Roof does for the choicest ingredients of fresh seafood, meats, and produce, what a sunset can do to a landscape: transforms it in the most natural, yet dramatic ways.
Like a single, perfect diver scallop porcini mushroom dusted, served with a truffle emulsion
Ceviche with candied sweet potatoes and corn nuts
Daily fish specials with accompaniments of market-fresh produce for crunch, acidity, and brightness––including tropical specialties like fruit salsas, jicama root, and citrus.
And meat dishes with regional flair, like churrasco steaks, or mojo marinade.
The island statements run straight through dessert, including a decadent Key lime pie with a cashew crust.
With an emphasis on the carefree and casual in Key West, few restaurants dare invite their guest to experience this laidback state of mind in an atmosphere of island elegance. With its refined but friendly service, Wine Spectator Awarded wine list, and gorgeous interior, Hot Tin Roof puts the best of Key West not just in front of, but completely surrounding you.
