In the tony South of Fifth neighborhood, one restaurant has never been as enduring as Joe’s Stone Crab. Like many residents of Miami Beach, Joe’s too is only here for a short season, however when they are open it is one of the favored restaurants among locals and tourists alike for their namesake Stone Crabs as well a large portion salads, amazing burgers, and other delectable seafood offerings. Joe’s was opened in 1921, a time when the Biscayne Bay was full of stone crabs but no one knew how to eat them. James Allison, an early investor in Miami, had hired an ichthyologist to do research on the bay, and he arrived one day with a burlap sack full of stone crabs, James threw them in a pot of boiling water and the rest is Miami Beach history. Originally, these crabs were served with hashed browns, cole slaw, and simple mayonnaise. Miami Beach Condos and Homes would like to share with you our picks for favorite foods at Joe’s. Enjoy!
