The menu boasts craft versions of cocktail classics. What are you waiting for? Go live in better days.

This old gas station-turned-New-Orleans-style-fishery is bound to become a new favorite date spot, with an impressive array of wines and bubbles to pair with the bivalve and caviar selections. We loved the "popcorn" (clams, conch, oysters and shrimp, $14) and the Maine lobster deviled eggs with smoked paprika and chives ($15). The entrée menu is divided into "Plain" or "Fancy;" the monkfish ($22) dressed with smoked trout roe and lobster sauce on a bed of broccolini is definitely the latter.

Green Plate Buffet

A good buffet? We didn't believe it either, but a recent lunch trip to Doral's Green Plate Buffet changed our minds. For $26, you get a choice of one appetizer and one entrée from its menu—we loved the duck breast served with mushroom risotto and blueberry-fig jam. The price also includes an all-you-can-eat counter featuring an array of elaborate sushi rolls (our personal favorite was the umami dynamite roll), raw seafood, ceviches, soups, salads and desserts. All of the dishes are replaced continuously, so they're super fresh. Come hungry.
