Its full name is Captain Jim's Seafood Market Restaurant. But why waste precious jaw time on a title when you could be wrapping your mouth around Captain Jim's grouper sandwich. The size is impressive (two fillets) and so are the accompaniments of hush puppies and crisp slaw, but what makes the sandwich so superior is the fish's freshness. The Captain is actually a fishing-boat skipper and he respects his prey -- clear from the fish counter's sparkling appearance housing the day's extensive catches. This includes local breeds of grouper and mahi-mahi, plus other fish common in South Florida waters, but not it's markets and restaurants (amberjack, bonito, grunt), and flown-in fare including Bahamian conch (don't miss the super conch fritters). Judging by his wholesale prices, the Captain also respects pocketbooks; stone crabs are generally half the price of those sold at Joe's. Here's the deal, select a variety of fish from the refrigerated cases, and Captain Jim's staff will fry, grill, broil, or blacken it for you. Try a cold draught beer to wash it all down.
