2005 Best Seafood Restaurant, South

Jake’s Seafoods Restaurant & Market

Minimalism is to fresh New England seafood what media attention is to Tom Cruise—which is to say, essential to its very being. Jake’s serves up our region’s underwater treasures the way they’re meant to be: straight from the ocean and nearly unadorned (save a squeeze of lemon here, a toss of bread crumbs there). The result? Dishes—cedar-roasted salmon, swordfish with anchovy-and-olive relish—that let unsullied flavor shine.
