Tucked away on Purdy Avenue, Joe Allen’s is a Miami Beach staple that not too many tourists have heard of. In fact, some might call it South Beach’s best-kept secret. That’s because the cuisine is so good and the service much better than what is normally expected in a tourist-driven town that us locals want to keep Joe Allen’s for ourselves.
But since you caught wind of our little secret, I guess we can share some more information with you: Joe Allen’s is a treat no matter what the occasion. With a classic American menu that features everything from Meatloaf and mashed potatoes ($16) to Sautéed Shrimp and Monk Fish with Lobster-White Wine Sauce, Sautéed Spinach and Saffron Risotto ($22), Joe Allen’s has something to offer every taste in your party.
When you are looking to escape the tourist traps and have a real honest meal with great service in an unpretentious, inviting setting, Joe Allen is the place for you.
