Key West is a late night town, so finding a decent meal after hours is a cinch. Whether you’re arriving at your hotel hungry after travel delays or partying on the strip in Old Town, you’ll find an international feast awaits.
Pizza is the usual alcohol-fueled go-to food, and Mr. Z's does it right with New York-style slices. The owners from Philly bring a special treat to the table--authentic cheesesteak sandwiches dripping with cheese. Got a hankering for Mexican instead? Head to Amigos Tortilla Bar where their homemade square corn tortillas are packed with delicious fillings like chorizo, fish and shrimp. For an extra boost to keep the party going, Sandy's has high-octane coffee and hearty Cuban sandwiches 24/7.
Looking for something more upscale? Virgilio’s pairs Italian nosh with smooth martinis, and POINT5 serves up European-inspired tapas with fine wines. For a nightcap that will satisfy your sweet tooth, try Better Than Sex. You'll savor sinful desserts such as Peanut Butter Perversion and the Missionary Crisp in a dark romantic atmosphere.
Key West has more bars per capita than anywhere else in the country, so it's not surprising that a few go beyond the normal pub fare. A top-rated dish at Jack Flats is the Shrimp and Bacon Club, while Hog’s Breath has a raw bar and island faves like conch chowder. The well-rounded menu at Fogarty's includes everything from pecan-encrusted mahi to filet mignon. As a bonus, their fruity cocktails can double as dessert.
