No. 48: Key Lime Pie from Le Tub

What's more Florida than Key lime pie? Well, maybe Le Tub. The open-air restaurant

made of what looks like driftwood and old toilets is Buffett bohemian in

all the best ways. The Key lime pie produced there is just about

perfect: tart, creamy, tangy, moist, with a graham cracker crust that

leaves little flecks on the styrofoam bowl. But what sets it into

overdrive is the way it jibes with the atmosphere, especially when the

sun is setting and you're already full from a big-ass burger or a bowl

of too much seafood.
