Kaiyo

Sophisticated big-city food, a gorgeous dining room, and the Keys' laid-back ambiance combine to make this chic Islamorada restaurant one of the best and most appealing places to eat in the islands. Duck confit wrapped in green tea crêpes, tempura-fried baby abalone (don't panic, they're farm-raised) with wasabi sauce, and slippery udon noodles with shellfish and kim chee butter are just some of the highlights. And if you need a sushi fix, the stylish sushi bar at Kaiyo dispenses all the usual raw fish suspects (of impeccable freshness), as well as inventive maki such as the "Key lime roll," which comprises citrus essence, hearts of palm, and local lobster in a tart, luscious, elegant package.
