Papa's Fresh Market

This restaurant and fish market looks every bit of its 1976 vintage, though that's not a bad thing. Being inside the winding corridors decked floor to ceiling in dark wood feels like dining in the galley of an old fishing boat. A display case by the front door highlights the day's catch: To the right, glistening fillets of local hog snapper, dolphin, and grouper are set over packed ice; to the left sit oysters, stone crab, shrimp in various sizes, and prepared seafood salads available by the pound. In addition to the simply prepared seafood dishes, the restaurant stuffs fillets of dolphin and snapper with crab meat and lobster sauce, prepares pan-seared swordfish Livornese, and does huge portions of pasta with clams and white wine sauce or shrimp fra diavolo.
