USS Nemo Undersea Cuisine & Adventures
With its subtle submarine motif and obvious seafood obsession, USS Nemo (239-261-6366) is among the most original restaurants on the Naples dining scene these days, and it has the fan base to prove it. The freshness extends to methods of preparation. The diver scallops come with leek fondue and goat cheese polenta. Grouper, shrimp and calamari populate the Commodore’s Mixed Grill, treated to an orange and tomato puree. Regulars rave about the signature miso sea bass. Away from the competitive downtown Naples scene, USS Nemo, furthermore, sells its seafood for surprisingly affordable prices.
