Captain Jim’s Seafood Market Restaurant Unveils New Renovations

Captain Jim’s Seafood Market Restaurant (Captain Jim’s Seafood), a cornerstone seafood market and restaurant in North Miami’s Downtown, celebrates two years of its new ownership with the unveiling of a new sign and sleek renovations.  Since the arrival of its new owners two years ago, famed restaurateur Jeffrey Ross and his cousin Larry Cohen, the market restaurant has undergone a ​major transformation thanks to the generous support of North Miami’s Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA). The market restaurant has also been able to maintain its historic integrity of boat-to-table quality seafood.  The new update provides customers with the perfect lunch and dinner setting served up with an array of fresh seafood as well as unlikely delightful dishes and friendly service where everybody knows your name.”

This is the first remodel of the establishment since 1998 and the beginning of a new era.  This month, they celebrate their three year anniversary at Captain Jim’s Seafood with a couple events sponsored by NMCRA, which supports businesses and organizations searching for a new home in the Downtown NoMi area.

In the market of the restaurant, a lobster crate is used as a light fixture, and strategically lit market cases display large variety of fish and seafood along with freshly prepared seafood salads. A raw-bar showcases oysters and clams from the Northeast and a stone crab station features claws of various sizes with a “cracking station” where the claws are prepared before you.

In addition to the market area renovation, the restaurant has modern ceramic floors that mimic wood, a chic bar area and plenty of booths to accommodate the lunch and dinner rush. The exterior of the market restaurant features a nostalgic front sign, reminiscent of a vintage neon display, and soon Captain Jim’s will be announcing an exciting partnership with a Wynwood artist who will paint a piece special to Captain Jim’s on the exterior north wall.

Captain Jim’s Seafood offers guests the same great quality service throughout the entire space, from its food to the sea-inspired ambiance. It is the ideal spot for the ultimate Miami seafood experience. The restaurant serves up delicious classic seafood items as well as chef-inspired dishes by Chef Wilfrid Charles. At the bar, options on draft from local breweries including the Wynwood Brewing Company can be enjoyed, as well as a display of the vast wine selection. The restaurant has a strong connection to its community and believes in the strength of partnerships, so in addition to its offerings of local beers, Zak the Baker bread is enjoyed.
