Miracles emerge from the minuscule kitchen in the downtown cottage that houses Indigenous. Chef/owner Steve Phelps is a fisherman who reveres local seafood and can tell guests what boat caught their dinner today and who the captain was. A menu with nightly specials focuses on regionally sourced seasonal vegetables and heritage grains paired with those fresh fish—including Mote Marine’s farmed sturgeon—luxurious lamb, short ribs and a grass-fed red beef burger that’s a gourmet meal. Don’t dare to request substitutions; this captain runs a tight ship. The cottage is postcard charming, so enjoy the views in one of the tiny rooms, front porch or covered sidewalk amid Florida foliage and stars.
