Key West has this awesome event every year called “A Taste of Key West”. This event is a favorite for locals and toursists in town. Every year this event falls around April 20th and is widely published in local papers and the Key West Citizen too. The event gives all local restauranteurs the opportunity to showcase their signature dishes for folks to sample. It is kind of like a large Tapas party. Located on the Truman Waterfront which is directly at the end of Southard St. There are also many different types of wines to pair with the magnitude of Tapas.The Truman Waterfront area hosts the Taste of Key West again this year. The area surrounding the Taste of Key West is also home to some of Key West’s premier real estate. This section of Old Town Key West is referred to as the Truman Annex.
