Restaurants: September Steals

The dining room at Santiago's.

By Shayne Benowitz

Some people enjoy the lazy days of summer, but in Key West, and especially at Fury, we don’t get a break until after Labor Day. September is notorious for being a sleepy month on the island. That’s great for visitors scooping up off-season rates on accommodations and you’ll enjoy our tropical paradise sans the crowds. Some local restaurants close for vacation, but others stay open and offer great specials.

WARNING: Some of these deals are for locals only. Double check with the restaurant if you’re from out of town! Either way, these are some of the hottest spots on the island you won’t want to miss.

50% Off: Grand Café (Duval St & Caroline St)

Cuisine: New American with Caribbean flare

Ambiance: Casual sophistication in the heart of Duval Street

Notable Dishes: Tomato bisque with jumbo lump crabmeat, seared scallops in key lime beurre blanc, grilled bluefin tuna with wasabi aioli

Fury Girl’s Tip: There’s a quiet little bar nestled in the back, perfect for an after dinner cocktail and dessert.
