Dining Guide


An island mainstay, Dragonfly sets a playful tone with its beachy wall colors, plentiful fish tanks, and tchotchkes as far as the eye can see (a giant seahorse makes his home in the corner). The menu runs long and seems so varied that you’ll suspect it can’t be good. But here’s the thing: it is. The food—pork cheeks braised in guajillo sauce, crab-stuffed, bacon-wrapped Gulf shrimp, a rich lamb meat loaf with goat cheese—always tastes homemade and fresh. Grab a cake-in-a-jar to go, as there will be no room for dessert until breakfast.
