Fin & Claw II is such a place, the outpost of a dwindling tribe that once flourished in Broward and Palm Beach, now a band on the run. Still, the pace here is unhurried, the catch fresh and well-prepared, and the entrées a bargain when you factor in the price of soup, salad, potatoes, and creamed spinach that comes along for free.
