Boating enthusiasts with families rejoice, as newcomer Seasalt and Pepper on the Miami River knows exactly how to treat a hungry crew. The little ones will be thrilled by the novelty of a restaurant that can be reached by water, and you’ll be delighted with the ocean-fresh seafood at this chic American seafood brasserie. Show up with your family on weekends and take advantage of kid-friendly distractions that go way beyond crossword puzzles on the back of a cartoon menu. You and your partner will appreciate the chaperoned Junior Lounge, where your offspring are amused by kid-friendly entertainers, movies, and games. Once you know they’re taken care of, take a moment to appreciate the restaurant’s exquisite design. Subtle marine touches harmonize with the bells and whistles of a thoughtfully stylish post-industrial restaurant. The bar is inspired by an old ship, with a maze of wicker baskets hovering over it. Keep your eyes up. A permanent art installation suspended from the high ceiling pays homage to old objects recovered from the river. Retractable garage doors open up to the water, revealing spectacular views of downtown Miami. Whet your appetite with a few succulent morsels from the raw bar, which glistens with the freshest shellfish and crustaceans. Signature casserole entrées are delicious hybrids of culinary cultures, served piping hot in clay crock pots. Finish off your meal with a chilled glass of rosé and watch the sun set as the DJ spins lounge music you last heard at Café del Mar in Ibiza.
