Few locations are more dedicated to their theme than this seafood-centric restaurant, with its garage doors thrown open to welcome a salty breeze. The building itself is a gussied-up warehouse topped with the quote, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Inside, the maritime-themed décor unveils brass portholes, octopus-like sconces and anchor-shaped bar hooks for purses.
The cooking is just as true to the seas and their fishermen, who are specifically named on the menu. Diners may start with rock fish ceviche with citrus, coconut milk, turmeric and a hint of habanero—it's just right for scooping up with house-made sweet potato chips. The thresher shark lunch plate is wonderfully mild, topped with a dollop of puttanesca relish and creamy slaw.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
