Algonquin: "Freshest seafood in town"- Garcia's May 12, 2008‏

Thanks to the 100 plus crowd that showed up for the 2 year Algonquin anniversary! And thanks to WOMMA for providing us with a half hour of open bar during the party. Shhhh!! :)

We're headed back to the Miami River this week for some fresh seafood!

"Owned and operated by father-son team Esteban and Este Garcia, this restaurant has a comfortable, family-style atmosphere. Fresh seafood adds to the appeal. Not exactly easy to find but well worth the effort, Garcia's is a casual, locals haunt, both restaurant and market serving some of the freshest seafood that's hard to beat."
