This was awesome.. My wife is not eating tomato sauce while she is producing sustenance for our little guy so, I have not been making tomato sauce.  There were a bunch of things on the menu that stood out but, I couldn't pass on the tomato sauce. 


The guy three people down at the bar was eating the cow feet special and it looked awesome..But, the mussels and grouper were fantastic.. lots of garlic, a light tomato sauce, fried grouper and green mussels..  The fish store they buy their fish from, is my go to spot.  I almost bought the grouper last night so, I was happy to have them cook it for me.. the mussels were definitely frozen as all they have are the black guys.. But, these were definitely green shelled and I could tell, previously frozen.  Surprisingly, good despite me expecting them to be bad. 


Here is the menu: 


Trash fish abound:



Loved the vegetables too..  A glass of wine or two and three espressos and a sambuca
