This place is named Catch for several reasons, one being the obvious—it's a seafood spot—and another because if you walk too fast, you may miss it. Then there's the Joseph Heller reference: Serving only fresh seafood bought locally on a daily basis, Catch 27 creates ordering dilemmas, offering on any given day temptations that range from a stellar Minorcan clam chowder in a smoky, spicy broth, to a simply seasoned blackened Florida triggerfish. Fish tacos with a side of black beans and rice are a favorite here, too, kicked up several notches with the local datil-pepper hot sauce. Non-fish eaters needn't steer clear, as the pork bowl—filled with juicy seasoned chunks of meat—is a hearty, tasty dish. Boozers beware: Catch 27 is BYOB, although there's a wine shop around the corner and the restaurant doesn't charge a corkage fee. With just a few tables inside the clean and modern dining room and on the cozy little patio outside, reservations are strongly encouraged.
