Sea is chef Tony Sindaco's simple, elegant bistro. Fresh catches are listed daily on the chalkboard menu at the price for a three-course meal ($25 to $35), though ordering à la carte is perfectly fine too. A 25-seat slip with mid-century modern accents and an Old Florida fish mural make for stylish surroundings while staying true to a beachy aesthetic. Servers dressed in chef whites add polish to the experience. Sindaco's menu offers refined riffs on Italian flavors from his childhood: seared calamari in a tomato pan sauce; a tuna Bolognese as a main course. A frisée salad in warm bacon dressing with a poached egg evokes breakfast, and the conch chowder infused with Caribbean spices and chilies is a destination dish. For desserts, the chocolate cherry mousse is ho-hum, while a whiskey cake or Key lime pie are sublime.
