The Locals Favorites for Dining & Restaurants on 5th Ave South
Seafood "Nicoise" Salad - Riverwalk Restaurant at Tin City, 1200 Fifth Avenue South
THE DISH. The centerpiece of this meal-in-a-salad is four brochettes of grilled shrimp, yellowfin tuna and grouper. These seafood skewers rest atop mixed greens dresses in balsamic vinaigrette and decorates with a colorful combination of Roma tomatoes, cannelini beans, Idaho potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, kalamata olives and feta cheese.
Rhum Boogie Cocktail-The Dock Restaurant at Crayton Cove, 845 12th Avenue South
THE DISH. "A little orange juice, a little pineapple juice, a lot of Nicaraguan rum, and you'll boogie all night long", says The Dock's Dolly Roberts. Known for its tropical Caribbean and Latin cuisine, The Dock stocks its bar with 25 rums from Puerto Rico and beyond
Emily's Warm Chocolate Cake-Ridgway Bar & Grill, 1300 Third Street South
THE DISH. This favorite 'is unlike any other as it's completely molten all the way through", says pastry chef and namesake Emily Duncan. Dig in and see the chocolate ooze onto the plate. Made with a scant amount of four and 65 percent maracaibo chocolate, it's heaven on Earth with berries and vanilla ice cream. Ridgway also serves breads, pastries and desserts made on site and "to go" at Tony's Off Third next door.
Grilled Black Grouper-Pincher's Crab Shack, 1200 Fifth Avenue South
THE DISH. Black grouper, one of the rarest and tastiest varieties of this mild native fish, is obviously the big deal here, offered grilled, blackened or fried with secret house seasonings. Since they only serve it fresh (slogan: "You Can't Fake Fresh") it's catch as catch can (as it were). When black grouper isn't on the menu, try the red grouper instead!
Fish 'N' Chips-The Jolly Cricket, 720 Fifth Avenue South
THE DISH. The New York Times proclaimed Jolly Cricket's beer-battered cod with its own house-made tartar sauce "succulent". The chips? Fresh-cut potatoes, twice-fried for ultimate crunch. Add a dash of malt vinegar (and forget about adding up the calories!). It doesn't get better than this.
