In Miami Beach for a business conference - not in South Beach. My wife and I left the conference hotel (not the National) and went to see as many of the Art Deco era classics as we could. The National was incredible! This hotel is truly a classic, and looks as good-or better- as it did when first opened in 1939!
We went in to see the restaurant menu, and stayed for supper. Appetizer-Great! Salad-Scrumptious! My wife had the Lobster Ravioli, and I had the bone-in Filet- melted in my mouth! Key Lime pie for desert topped off a great meal, the credit for most of which goes to a truly exceptional staff and our waiter, Francisco. When you visit, ask for Francisco. It has been a long time since we have finished a meal truly impressed like we were with Francisco. When we return to Miami Beach we will stay at The National, and we will enjoy our meals with Francisco.
