So Tru
Eating Stone Crabs on Brickell

Mid-October in Miami means two things:

1. You can now wear a suit jacket (hello, 70-degree mornings).

2. Stone crabs are in season.

Here to assist you with both: Trulucks, a new cathedral of crustaceans and power dinners, opening tomorrow on Brickell.

Think of this as your new spot in Downtown for when you feel like rounding up a few friends and going crazy on a raw bar.

Walking in, you’ll immediately be hit with the clean, fresh scent of oceanic goodness mingled with mustard sauce and key lime. Breathe it in. Then, sink into one of the burgundy leather banquettes circling the room—or grab a table near the piano bar, which will be buzzing during happy hour.

From there you’ll want to summon a parade of day-boat claws (caught by the restaurant’s own fleet of crabbing boats), oysters from the New England coast and Alaskan fish. And if you’re dining with landlubbers, there are also turf-ables like the Beef Oscar, an eight-ounce filet topped with blue crab claw meat, shaved asparagus and jalapeño béarnaise.

We hear it’s Oscar-worthy.
