Headed to Miami. Thinking about an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Do you know of one? Help me too by mentioning places to avoid.

    Headed from where? You gotta be more specific. If you're driving down the whole eastern seaboard, there are quite a few worthwhile places to stop. I have fond memories of a place in Norfolk, Va.

          I know very little about Cuban food, but I'm willing to try it. Can someone quickly describe what its like. Spicy? Our hotel is on Collins Ave, so the rascal house would be a possibility.

            Cuban food is more "garlicky" than spicy. Most dishes use either chicken or pork. Black beans, fried plantains (similar to bananas) and yellow rice are common side dishes. There used to be a great restaurant called La Rumba on 18th and Collins in South Beach that had great cuban food. Apparently they are still around but changed their name and only offer take out only. You can't go wrong in Little Havana there are plenty of Cuban Restaurants, just remember that English is not the primary language there.

            Oh, forgot a couple of things. Miami is not exactly the place for seafood, however it is the place for stone crabs, however it's going to be expensive. If you are willing to splerge approximately $100 per person then go to Joes Stone Crab in South Beach. Conch is also popular and you might be able to find a few places that sell conch fritters, there might even be a few vendors on the street corners in Downtown Miami that sell it.
