Who needs plates? At the exalted waterfront dive that is Star Fish Company, the food is served in white plastic containers the size of shoe boxes, unassuming packages that conceal the greatness within. Star Fish sources most of its seafood from A.P. Bell Fish Company next door, and then treats Bell’s outstanding Gulf catches with the care and respect they deserve. The grouper is grilled just until it’s done and no more, oysters are transformed in the deep fryer into crispy marine nuggets in the deep fryer and the smoked mullet, whipped into a spread or served on its own, tastes of pure fire and food. No fancy recipes, no fancy presentation—and no credit cards, either.
