Garcia's exterior
Glenn Lindgren: The Miami river has always been a funky channel of commerce, more industrial eyesore than urban gem.

Jorge Castillo: However, the river is slowly changing and in many parts, especially near downtown where it empties into Biscayne Bay, it is starting to become a scenic attraction. Where else can you watch huge container barges make their way up and down the river in a never ending parade?

Glenn Lindgren: Here you'll find a combination Cuban seafood restaurant and fish market, Garcia's. The Garcias, Esteban, Esteban Luis and Luis Esteban, run a small fleet of fishing boats that guarantee only the freshest product daily.

Raúl Musibay: We first came here several years ago looking for some fresh shrimp. We saw several people eating fish sandwiches at a table overlooking the river, and how could we resist?

Jorge Castillo: They make the sandwiches with dolphin – the fish, not the mammal – and they are light and crisply battered.

Glenn Lindgren: Everybody wants to eat outside here and unless it's very hot, we recommend grabbing a table with a view of the river. Garcia's is mainly a lunch spot, but you could squeeze in an early dinner here.

The Details

Garcia's Seafood Grille

Miami, FL 33139

Jorge Castillo: They have great specials. You can order anything that they've caught that day and have it prepared just about anyway you want it, blackened or breaded are the two most popular options.

Glenn Lindgren: At Garcia's, you'll not only find the usual snapper, grouper, and mahi-mahi but a couple of our favorites, mangrove snapper and corvina.

Raúl Musibay: The mangrove snapper is a fish we usually have to go and catch ourselves – most restaurants don't serve them. They are delicious lightly breaded and deep-fried.
