Once inside Dragonfly, the third location for the Gainesville-based ownership group, it's easy to see why the place is packed – even at 10 p.m. There's a veritable wonderland of Asian bric-a-brac. A regiment of gilded cats stands guard over the open kitchen, the creatures' unflinching eyes gazing across the space. A vintage pachinko machine sits just before the threshold of the restrooms.Point your attention to a concise list of fish offered as sashimi or nigiri. There are pricey offerings like the golden eye snapper called kinme-dai or the Japanese sea bream called madai, the latter offering a bright, watery flavor with just a hint of sweetness. The kitchen shows off a deft hand with hot fish preparations, which is especially obvious in the shio saba. A plentiful salted mackerel filet is cooked until juicy, highlighting the assertive, slightly oily flavor. A dash of bright ponzu and grated daikon radish helps freshen up each bite. http://www.miaminewtimes.com/location/dragonfly-izakaya-and-fish-market-8576295
