THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dan Marino's Restaurant Review

: Yes, that Dan Marino. This is one in the lineage of themed restaurants named for the former Miami Dolphins super-quarterback, No. 13. His number adorns numerous displays throughout the restaurant, which features terrazzo floors, mosaic tiles and eye-catching sconces. Some areas, especially the two decks, offer views of the city's downtown waterfront. A glassed-in kitchen gives patrons a clean, quiet look at their food being prepared. One of the most popular menu items is the nut-crusted mahi---seven ounces of mahi mahi fish filet breaded in mixed nuts and served atop a mound of garlic smashed potatoes (not mashed, since the smashed' potatoes retain some of their lumps), garnished with fresh sautéed spinach and accompanied by a vanilla butter-rum sauce. A popular item, also, is tender beef tips---beef tenderloin tails sautéed with onions, peppers, mushrooms and red wine, finished with brown gravy and a hint of garlic, and also served around a mountain of smashed garlic potatoes, topped with thin, crisp onion rings. You might also try the Marino margarita (even though there is an adjacent, but separate, martini bar) served in a frosted glass rimmed in blue salt with a side of Grand Marnier.
