This Brickell hotspot caters to everyone:  happy hour crews, the corporate lunch bunch as well as the neighborhood dinner crowd. Most who come to The River Seafood & Oyster Bar are attracted to one of the best raw bars in Miami where a wide array of East and West Coast oysters (like our favorites, Bluepoints and Kumamotos) as well as perfectly-balanced accoutrements are served. Others are drawn to the upscale tavern setting and the small plates and reasonably priced menu of entrees that showcase seafood and meat preparations. Insiders like the whole Key’s yellowtail snapper with pigeon pea rice and a scotch bonnet vinaigrette and the  Churrasco skirt steak with chimichurri and sour orange mojo yuca frites.

From 4:30-7pm every night, the oysters, bar menu and specialty cocktails are half-priced. 650 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL, 33130. Tel: (305) 530-1915.
