Marker 32 Restaurant Review: To truly capture the atmosphere, make a sunset reservation and watch the glittering Intracoastal Waterway fade into night. Then prepare for dishes that showcase all-American ingredients with flourishes from the Pacific Rim, Mediterranean and Southern traditions. Launch into dinner with broiled oysters with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and pecorino cheese. Or, on a cool winter evening, start with a hearty appetizer of rustic polenta with wild mushrooms, artichokes, spinach and herbed goat cheese. Listen carefully to the specials, featuring just-off-the-boat tuna, snapper, grouper and other delights. Sesame-crusted rare tuna and crispy snapper with seafood etouffée are favorites. However, meat lovers will find nightly preparations featuring filet mignon, pork loin or wood-grilled poultry. All entrées come in generous portions with creatively prepared vegetables and starches on the side. The staff at this upscale, studied-casual waterfront restaurant is well-trained and personable. Try hard not to stuff yourself with the exotic breads from the kitchen: you'll want to save room for dessert.
