Chef Will Greenwood?s dishes have graced many important meals, from Julia Child?s 80th birthday party to the Head of State luncheons at NATO?s 50th-anniversary celebration. In the '90s, the Clinton family even invited him to audition for the role of White House chef. Today, Greenwood?s recipes inform festive meals at Catch Twenty-Three, where diners savor Caribbean-fusion dishes in a cozy but upscale setting. Waiters ferry juicy steaks, sushi rolls, and fresh seafood to tables, and bartenders shake up cocktails like the Key Largo rum runner or pour selections a well-curated wine list.

From the Pecan-Wood Grill

Certain dishes at Catch Twenty-Three get their signature flavor from the kitchen's pecan-wood-burning grill. Below, a couple of highlights:

Filet Mignon Chilean Sea Bass
This tender cut of beef picks up a hint of sweet smokiness on the grill, which is brought out by a rich zinfandel reduction. Chefs brush this fish with olive oil and key-lime juice before grilling it to perfection.

Outside Ballyhoo Grill, a sign made to look like a colorful speedboat beckons to passersby, hinting at the smorgasbord of fresh seafood to be found within. A tropical theme permeates the space, with live music setting a relaxing mood and nautical decor—such as a surfboard, an alligator head, and a stuffed and mounted kraken—adorning the walls. Guests dine on surf 'n' turf plates, fish tacos, pulled pork, and burgers as they share friendly conversation and clink cocktail glasses and mugs of draft beer.

At Mangroves, ordering a drink is almost as much of an experience as sipping it—guests ask for wine and cocktails at a handcrafted 60-foot, stained-glass bar. Its eye-catching design fits right into the chic downstairs lounge, dotted with VIP tables where guests revel in bottle service. Upstairs, meanwhile, another full bar awaits visitors, fueling jive sessions on the spacious dance floor. DJs spin there four days a week, playing sets far preferable to the sound of guests blowing over empty champagne flutes.

Late-night partiers can snack on casual bites such as chicken tenders or mac ‘n’ cheese after 10 p.m., but the eatery’s dinner menu reflects the same refinement as the stained-glass bar. Pomegranate-glazed salmon and black Angus filets in blue-cheese sauce delight palates, along with simpler burgers and salads.

Chip Roehl and Lenny Terlaje, the former management team of award winning restaurant Splash! An Ocean Grill, don?t believe that there's only one way to prepare seafood. At their award-winning restaurant, this culinary duo draws upon cooking styles from around the world, from saut?ing mussels in scampi sauce to coating sesame-crusted tuna in ponzu. And those are just the appetizers?for entrees, Tom and Lenny crown crab-cake sandwiches with lemon-dill aioli and vampire-proof lobster tails by broiling them in garlic butter.

Alongside these maritime meals, the twosome also showcases ingredients from the land, such as fire-grilled filet mignons and sirloin burgers topped with roasted bacon. Beer, wine, and classic cocktails complement the feasts, which unfold inside a roomy dining room awash in blue lights reminiscent of the sea.
