Ten Best Seafood Restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach Counties
In this nondescript strip-mall spot on East Commercial Boulevard, chef/owner Tony Sindaco pumps out a menu that is opposite of ordinary. Extraordinary dishes, from tuna Bolognese to braised black grouper, served with ever-changing but perfectly cooked accoutrements, will satisfy any seafood lover's craving -- and might convert a few haters. The mind-blowing effect totally makes sense given Sindaco's résumé; the award-winning chef spent time working in kitchens across the U.S. and Europe, including stints at Michelin 5-Star Palace Hotel in Gstaad, Switzerland, and the Five Diamond Helmsley Palace in New York City under Andre Rene. At Sea, Sindaco brings his haute approach to his casual 22-seat eatery just blocks from the beach. That's exactly why we nominated the spot New Times winner for Best Seafood - 2012.

While we all love a divey raw bar, there are times when we want the best of the best. Situated on Palm Beach, this little gem of a spot got our pick for Best Seafood Restaurant 2013 for its wide selection of flavorful sustainable fish, huge assortment of oysters from around the world, and innovative "seacuterie" -- cured seafood items. Dishes like mussels in Thai basil broth with coconut and lotus root chips ($15), Parmesan-macadamia-zucchini-crusted mahi-mahi with arugula, avocado, orange, and toasted coconut ($29), and Chilean sea bass with caramelized soy-infused Brussels sprouts, enoki mushrooms, glazed baby carrots, and crispy leeks ($39) highlight the globally inspired, sustainable fare.
