Del Ray, Florida: J and J Raw Bar.

Central florida is a bit of a foodie wasteland. That's  not to say that one can not find adequately good food there. Just that there are no surprises to really delight my palate, with few exceptions, like my fave, Pizzeria Oceano in Lantana, One of the best locations for great pizza in North America (other very good dishes as well). 

J and J Raw Bar was a pleasing place for seafood. I will not tell you to make a detour, but, if you are in the area and looking for a good meal, you now have a place to consider for your list.

 Good, competently rendered crab cakes.

I ate some of this clam dish before taking the photo. Fresh clams in a good garlic flavoured wine, butter, roasted red pepper, cherry tomato sauce.

Nicely cooked fresh squid, just a bit too oily and not crispy enough.

Flour dusted, fried clams, not overcooked, with a pleasing crunchy exterior.
