We started our week in the Florida Keys by dining at Sunset Grille and Raw Bar located at the foot of Seven-Mile Bridge in Marathon. The fabulous Caribbean ambiance of the place is hard to put into words. The roof is an elaborate, thatched south-seas tiki affair. The entire property is out of doors... natural air conditioning at it's best.
My husband and I chose to share a bowl of she-crab soup. Many places attempt to make this popular soup, but not all are successful... Sunset Grille is. We could have made a meal out of this soup or taken a swim in it. I did dab a little behind ear for later... to lure my date into a little late night nibbling;)
While her hubby chose a huge platter of raw oysters, my sis had the Thai Peanut Shrimp Skewers. The peanut sauce had a little kick to it. I liked the fact that the sauce did not overpower the freshness of the grilled shrimp.
The only downside to the meal was that we were so full, we didn't have room for dessert... maybe next time!
