Joe's Stone Crab
Where: 11 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
The restaurant was opened in 1913, by Joe Weiss, who began his Miami Beach career by cooking at Smith's Casino beginning in 1913. Joe's is the top buyer of Florida stone crab claws, and it plays a significant role in the industry, influencing the wholesale price and financing many crabbers. Even though stone crabs are their most famous dish now, fish was served, rather than crabs, after the restaurant's opening. When an ichthyologist asked Weiss why he didn't serve stone crabs, he answered that no one would want to eat them. He turned out to be wrong, as they found out soon after first cooking them.
My home was on the market with three real estate agents and it didn't sell. They all told me that the luxury market was very slow and my home was way overpriced. Amit sold my house in two and half weeks over the asking price. Couldn't be happier!

"Amit knows the luxury real estate market better than any other agent in Miami. When it comes to listings, I went back and looked at some of his previous and current listings and I was extremely impressed with the way he marketed his listings and the results he had produced for his past clients. I would definitely trust Amit to sell my home in the Miami area."
