Earlier this week, Wood announced free Craw fish for tonight, which I mistook for soup, for some odd reason. Was I pleasantly surprised! I’ve never had craw fish before and as I’ve been dying to get my hands on southern style seafood, I wasn’t going to pass this up! Sid Hoeltzell, a photographer based in our very own Wynwood, cooked these up fresh. At first, he didn’t allow me to any because I didn’t look adventurous enough (I’m the girl who wandered into Disney World by herself at the age of 3) and I replied it was just the effects of my office attire. He then explained I should come back when I caught him separating them into a bin, where he then splashed this delicious red dusty spice, threw in some lime, lemon and orange and shook it up for good measure. He served generous portions after demonstrating the best way to eat craw fish. My good friend Marlon (who is a favorite dinner date and responsible for my first taste of monk fish) then solidified an even better technique and I was on my way. They go down so well with beer and good company. I could have kept eating them and I hope this becomes a weekly thing. Miami is full of ridiculously humble events like this, where it’s a great chance to get to know your neighbors and strangers alike. I can’t afford many of the best restaurants in Miami but nights like this go a long way. I love you, Miami! Big thanks to Wood Tavern!
