3030 Ocean: Oceanfront Seafood Bistro & Bar in Fort Lauderdale

Sunshine, clear skies, salty seas, and relaxation are what you expect while staying at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale. What you may not expect is the fantastic food brought to you by 3030 Ocean, the resort’s oceanfront American seafood bistro and bar.

Led by Executive Chef Adrienne Grenier, a former Chopped champion, 3030 has an exceptional menu, delicious food and many options. Their staff is well trained and knew which items were naturally gluten free and which could be made gluten free for me.

The menu focuses on four (or five) “smaller” plates (dessert not included), which leaves you feeling full, but not overwhelmed. What I enjoyed most about the menu were the unique food pairings, such as the Charred Octopus with marcona almond puree, farro, blistered tomatoes, feta, and arugula.

Lightkeepers Shines On Key Biscayne

Key Biscayne is one of those pretty parts of Miami that is rarely explored or talked about, at least not nearly as much as it should be.

It is home to tons of Miami history and El Farito, one of Miami’s oldest lighthouses. Lightkeepers, named as an homage to the lighthouse keepers who watched over Key Biscayne’s historic Cape Florida Lighthouse in the 1800’s, opened at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne just a few months ago. It’s located just off the waters of Key Biscayne and has a contemporary, coastal-inspired dining room and a casual indoor/outdoor bar.
