Azur Restaurant Review

: Azur is the restaurant two friends (and seasoned chefs) dreamed up during long, wine-and-food-infused travels through Italy and the Mediterranean. The dishes and flavors radiate sunshine and sun-warmed earth, with ingredients imported when it matters (cheeses, cured meats, honey, olives, oils) and local when possible (Key West pink shrimp, swordfish, black grouper). Start the day with something light like homemade granola, Greek yogurt and tropical fruits, or cut right to the chase with eggs Benedict. Sunday brunch’s must-try is the Key lime pie-stuffed french toast, along with abundant mimosas. For lunch, try the crab cake BLT for an island twist on your basic diner fare, or steamed Mediterranean mussels in tomato broth. Dinner standouts include slow-food selections like braised lamb over Moroccan-spiced chickpeas, or confit of magret duck, as well as odes to local seafood such as pan-roasted yellowtail snapper with pink shrimp and Swiss chard. Start with a seafood carpaccio that varies with the day’s freshest offering, or the salt cod croquettes. The wine list is as food-friendly and worldly as the restaurant’s owners.
