La Camaronera’s David Garcia now owns this iconic North Miami seafood joint, which originally opened in the 1990s. This heir to Miami seafood royalty kept the menu mostly unchanged, allowing the restaurant to do what it does best: Serve the freshest fish possible. Favorites include stone crab claws and a beautiful take on conch salad with meaty hunks of the mollusk tossed in a spicy tomato marinade and cubed red and green peppers. Fresh yellowtail snapper and hogfish can be ordered grilled, blackened, or fried. Regulars go for the Captain’s Combo: the catch of the day served with one side. New Normal: Captain Jim’s has expanded its outdoor seating.
