Foodie Friday! - USS Nemo


I went to visit my mom a couple weekends ago, and we took a mini vacation to Naples just the two of us. [this has not happened in...YEARS.] It was SUCH an amazing trip. Even though it was only for 24 hours, it was so relaxing it felt like a week, yet felt like not nearly long enough.

My mom, the uber foodie treated me to one of the most amazing restaurants i've ever been to. USS NEMO is an "creative" upscale seafood house in the heart of Naples.

The restaurant itself was a lovely sight. GORGEOUS, creative, with big windows and lots of intricate details. On the wooden walls you see, there are little boxes that look like fish tanks with little bubbles and whirl around.


I know you could have a Caesar salad anywhere, but they are one of my guilty pleasures. I love to order then because they are always different. But the Caesar at Nemo was the best one i've ever had. They used mustard in their dressing which i've never seen before, and it made the dressing light and flavorful.


Every dish on the menu is unique to NEMO, creatively explained. It was incredibly hard to figure out what i wanted to eat because i literally wanted to try everything.

For my main course i had a mushroom crusted salmon, "tempura" mashed potatoes and swiss chard. The fish had a purple grape sauce, which i've never seen before. It was magical for my taste buds. Everything was very flavorful, and the food styling looked like a plate from Bon Appetite; + 2 points for that!

All in all, if you ever want to splurge on an amazing restaurant that won't let you know, i would highly suggest going to USS Nemo.

What amazing restaurants have you been too?

Have a foodie filled friday ya'll!
