Blue Heaven is a favorite in Key West. Jimmy Buffet even mentioned it in one of his famous beach-toned tunes. The whimsical courtyard is filled with bright-colored tables and chairs with twinkly lights, foliage and roaming stray animals. The bar and restaurant is owned and operated by a husband and wife whose creative background in art and literature have inspired the space. There's a mini art gallery, a sandwich shop and roaming roosters on the grounds. The building was once a boxing ring that Ernest Hemingway served as referee. Now, it pays tribute to the Caribbean with brightly-colored accents and cajun seasoning on menu. The space is tropical, with plant life in the courtyard that keeps the sunlight to a minimum. Menu highlights include the scallops, which are locally celebrated, served with white wine and lemon butter with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and lots of garlic. The key lime pie is also recommended among the locals who say it's some the best in town.
