For our first meal in Key West, we hit up Square One. The place had a really nice drink menu and food selections, so I figured it was a perfect spot to try.
The decor is minimalist rustic, if that makes any sense.
It looks like pig wings have made their way down to Florida. The ones here were a healthy size and tasted really great. They were breaded lightly and fried crisp. The meat was super tender.
These duck dumplings were a very nice Chinese inspired appetizer as well. The flavors were robust.
My wife had this nice bowl of mussels, which were actually an appetizer portion but probably big enough for an entree if you are indulging in a few starters.
The snapper was all gone, but they had some local grouper. It came seared, and served atop some nice soba noodles.
A couple of days later my wife and I went back to try their flight of bloody mary drinks at breakfast.
From right to left that’s tomatillo and melon, carrot habanero, yellow tomato and regular tomato. Each was rimmed with a different type of salt to accentuate the flavors within. Really nice.
I had a lobster cobb salad to go with the bloodies. Lots of good quality lobster meat!
If you’re ever in Key West, I highly recommend this place. It’s great for drinks at the bar or any meal of the day. If native New Yorker Lucas is tending bar, you’ll have a great experience.
