#ThankYouMiami for Seafood Staples - Captain Jim's Seafood Restaurant & Market

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know today is the first day of lobster mini-season. Prepare to have your Facebook timeline bombarded with photos of friends showing off their bounty and, if you're lucky to have friends who share, to eat grilled barbecued, boiled, broiled, baked, and sautéed lobster. (There's lobster kebobs, lobster creole, lobster gumbo. There's pineapple lobster, lemon lobster, coconut lobster...) Inspired by all the fresh seafood that will be making landfall today, we wanted to share some serious food porn from Miami seafood staple, Captain Jim's Seafood Restaurant & Market. Once the lobster is gone, this is where you want to get your sea-to-table fix in the 305.

Captain Jim Seafood is more than a seafood staple—it's a Miami institution. For 16 years locals have flocked to its North Miami location for seafood caught fresh daily and delivered by the Captain Jim's private boat. Earlier this year, under new ownership, the venue was received a much-needed upgrade to its look and saw some unorthodox (as in non-seafood, seemingly out of left field) but extremely yummy additions to their menu such as chicken parm and burgers. The whole revamp is super refreshing, but we're glad it didn't kill the venue's trademark "off-the-beaten-path" vibes. It also didn't  change the consistently great quality of our beloved seafood favorites.

During our most recent visit we gorged on crab salad and crackers, peel-and-eat shrimp, and some incredibly succulent sautéed mussels (that broth, doe!!). We also food stalked the flaky mahi and grouper sandwiches of our dining companions and convinced them to split Captain Jim's famous key lime pie and their "drunken" (and perfectly moist) bread pudding. Wynwood Brewing kept us hydrated with their local brews, our favorite of which was the light and refreshing La Rubia. The entire meal was a drool-worthy experience which, lucky do you, we captured on film. Make sure you put on a bib before you begin scrolling!
