No. 48: Key Lime Pie from Le Tub

What's more Florida than Key lime pie? Well, maybe Le Tub. The open-air restaurant made of what looks like driftwood and old toilets is Buffett bohemian in all the best ways. The Key lime pie produced there is just about perfect: tart, creamy, tangy, moist, with a graham cracker crust that leaves little flecks on the styrofoam bowl. But what sets it into overdrive is the way it jibes with the atmosphere, especially when the sun is setting and you're already full from a big-ass burger or a bowl of too much seafood.
