One word never fails to get our millennial son to the dinner table with us: sushi. So when Aaron found out that the Captiva House Gulffront Seafood Restaurant at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa has added sushi to its dinner repertoire, he was there!
Believe me, this is no afterthought to keep up with the sushi super-trend. Captiva House goes the whole distance, using only the freshest products rolled up to order in creative packages.
On the regular menu, two sushi rolls appear every night – the Specialty Sushi Roll and Ultimate Captiva Sushi Roll. Then, Tuesday through Saturday, an extended menu of sushi, sashimi, rolls, and sake totally seduce even the casual sushi lover, never mind the obsessed type like my son.
Allow me to illustrate: Whereas my husband was content with the Tropicana Roll as an appetizer and I with the Ultimate as a meal, Aaron ordered five different specialty rolls.
I love my rolls with a little kick, so the sriracha aioli with the lump crab and ahi tuna on the Ultimate struck the right chord, as did the spicy tuna in Aaron’s So Yumi and Sunrise rolls.
He leans toward the fried seafood rolls and anything with cream cheese, so, as a surfer, could not resist the Surfing on the Ocean, where the entire crunchy-creamy roll is deep-fried.
We all loved the naming process — so in keeping with ‘Tween Waters’ sassy seaside temperament. Bikini Heat Stroke or Dancing on the Beach, anyone?
