THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Monty's Stone Crab Seafood Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A branch of the Miami-based Monty’s, this addition to Atlanta’s seafood scene proposes to keep us well supplied with the noble stone crab, whose delectable claws come in three sizes here. Choose medium (juicier) or large (meatier) for appetizers or entrées, to be dipped into perfectly crafted mustard sauce---this is pure South Florida tradition. Then move to a creamy, delectable she-crab soup flavored with the perfect hit of medium dry sherry---pure South Carolina tradition, Lowcountry-style. Florida bouillabaisse combines perfectly cooked shellfish with a medium-bodied, saffron-scented tomato sauce. Be clear about the doneness you prefer for your fish or it could come way overcooked. Mango-kissed salmon is a hit, but now comes with a side dish of grits. The wine list is not what we’d like to see; but the Domaine de la Perrière Sancerre is perfect with most shellfish dishes, and the Saintsbury Pinot Noir will take on the grilled tuna, the spiced mahi mahi and the aforementioned salmon. There are steaks, also. One lovely service is the offer to FedEx stone crab claws direct from Florida to your house by calling 800-817-3835. Bring ’em on! Monty’s closes from May to October, to give the famous crustaceans time to regenerate their sought-after wares.
