Captain’s Tavern

Yesterday’s Miami Cross Blogination posts made for fun reads. By far my favorite was the review of Kendall seafood restaurant Captain’s Tavern by Michael of Discourse.net. The review appeared on Critical Miami as part of the cross-blogging.

…plenty of people who’ve lived here for years have never noticed what may be the area’s top fish restaurant, located at 9621 S Dixie Hwy in Kendall, he wrote.

I’m one of those people, I’m embarassed to say. But from his write-up the place sounds like a must-try, so hopefully soon we’ll have a Mango & Lime review of the tavern. For now, I leave you with Michael’s.

**Update: Finally had the time to read the October issue of Food and Wine — the wine issue — and interestingly, Captain’s Tavern is named among America’s 50 most amazing wine experiences — one of only two Florida locations on the list.

Owner Bill Bowers has assembled a well-priced 600-bottle list to accompany the kitsch-filled dining room’s Caribbean — and South American — inspired food.

Timely indeed.

  1. Captain’s Tavern also has a 2-for-1 Maine lobster special (on Thursdays?), for anyone who’s interested. And it’s the only place in Miami that I’ve ever found shad roe on the menu. A very unhip kind of place, but it sure hits the spot.

  2. 5 days without a new post!!! I’m lost, I don’t know what to cook. I’m thinking of having a pop-tart for lunch!

  3. The Captain’s Tavern 2 for 1 is on Tuesday. Just go in and ask for the special and they’ll know what you are talking about. I’m a little shocked that Michael was there on a Tuesday and didn’t order the special. The lines are craziest on Tuesday and plenty of people are ordering the special.

    I really like how Captain’s Tavern will try to move bottles in their inventory when they only have a few left in stock. I’ve gotten some great deals (even better than the regular good deals) on these bottles. There’s a list on the menu and also on the board to the right of the entrance to the cellar.
