And last, the principal lobby and the ceiling of the principal lobby.
So, where did we eat? Well, we revisited a few old favorites, already on the blog in earlier posts. We still love Garcia's Fish Market, I have no idea how you'd get there without a car and a really good sense of direction, although it's less complicated since the city finished building the drawbridge. Fortunately Himself has a built-in food compass.
A new find was DeRodriguez Cuba on Ocean. Douglas Rodriguez is a brilliant chef, his food is Nuevo Latino, emphasis on Cuban. He's had a number of restaurants over the years, all good, and this is his newest. The staff is terrific about explaining the dishes, and while everything is presented prettily - South Beach, after all - it's really about the ingredients, which are top-notch. It does get very dark in here, a little penlight is helpful.
This is the bar in the main dining room. The red glow is from the candles on some tables. Himself grumbled about dining in the dark but he cheered up when the food arrived and he had no problem finding his plate.
