Casablanca Seafood Bar & Grill

Miami is evolving right under our noses. Parts of Miami many would never ever dare step around are now becoming the latest and greatest parts of Miami. A couple nights ago, we had dinner at Casablanca Seafood Bar and Grill — a seafood restaurant right on the Miami River. We did not have to wait to sit down even though the place was full.

Personal note: I very rarely eat at a seafood restaurant that does not have a fish market attached to it. I am happy to report that Casablanca has a fish market right next door and $5 valet parking.

My signature drink everywhere is the Mojito. You can’t go wrong with it, yet so many bartenders do. We ordered a dozen oysters and these were pretty big. Their cocktail sauce says “tangy” on the menu and they’re not kidding.

The lobster bisque also has a kick to it and large chunks of lobster. I could have had a whole pot of this lobster bisque. It was creamy and hearty all at once. We also ordered the Middleneck Clams which are cooked in white wine sauce.

For my main course I ordered the Seafood Au Gratin — which left a lot to be desired. You will never hear me complain about too much cheese, but this had almost no seafood with lots of potatoes and an interesting version of fontina cheese. The texture of the cheese doesn’t go well with the seafood.

We will definitely be going back to Casablanca’s because those oysters and clams were incredible. Our waitress was the sweetest as well as the other staff members that took care of us.
