CANTINA CAP­TIVA

Na­cho Madre’s Mex­i­can. En­joy lunch and din­ner in the gar­den or in­side, where bright ser­ape col­ors, piñatas, terra-tiled floors and adobe-style walls sub­tly sug­gest that we’ve gone south of the bor­der. LD

CAP­TIVA HOUSE

Old Florida/New Amer­i­can. Chef Ja­son Miller’s al­wayschang­ing menu cen­ters on the bounty of the sea­son with plenty of fresh fish. Wines from an eclec­tic list com­ple­ment the pre­sen­ta­tions, and the view from the Sun­set Room takes the breath away. BD
