Rusty Pelican 4th Of July Special

The new Rusty Pelican on Key Biscayne, which recently completed a $9 million renovation and debuted a new small plates menu, is a coveted destination for July 4 celebrations. Not only is it the perfect spot for sunsets, the waterfront dining destination boasts Miami’s best downtown skyline views – and a wonderful perch for watching fireworks. A patriotic side dish for July 4 is the rainbow cauliflower escabeche – which in addition to being light and refreshing, just happens to be red, white and blue. Rusty Pelican is located at 3201

Rickenbacker Causeway on Key Biscayne. Telephone: (305) 361-3818;
