9 Seafood Restaurants to Catch Great Wine

With more than 9,000 bottles in its cellar, Best of Award of Excellence winner Sea Salt is a leading wine destination in Naples, Fla., a seaside city with a growing community of enophiles. (Its sibling restaurant in St. Petersburg, Fla., has held a Best of Award of Excellence since 2016.) Here, diners can choose from wine director Liset Zelaya’s diverse 1,200-selection list, with gems from across California, Italy and France, including verticals from celebrated wineries such as Sonoma’s Peter Michael, Burgundy’s Domaine Ponsot and Piedmont’s Gaja. Steps away from the Naples Pier, looking onto the Gulf of Mexico, the restaurant takes surf and turf to heart. Chef Josh Zeman’s menu includes the likes of swordfish Milanese and Key West pink shrimp ceviche from the sea, plus Kurobuta pork chops, free-range chicken and boneless short ribs from the land.
