Fodor's Review

Enjoy the flowering gardens while dining alfresco on the outdoor patio on the dock at Market #48 or in one of two casually elegant dining rooms. An ever-evolving menu highlights Florida seafood, such as Gulf mangrove snapper served with a side of tropical fruit jam and habañero potatoes. A popular dish is the "lazy" Maine lobster, served without a shell with stewed San Marzano tomatoes and crushed chilies. The tuna (bigeye, yellowfin, and more) is flown in from Hawaii thanks to owner Jane Ferro, who is also the grandniece of the restaurant's namesake. It's Florida the way it should be: you can watch as dolphins swim past while blue herons lounge on the dock.
