The Clyde Jones Fish Collection

 

You would never know it but inside a non-descript Seafood restaurant on 15/501 at Cole Park Plaza is the most interesting and exiting collection of fish (and some other critters) painted by Bynum's Clyde Jones. The collection is owned by John Paliouris, owner of the Captain John's Drydock and a big fan of Clydes. What makes a trip to see the collection better than going to some gallery is the fact that the food here is great with broiled and fried seafood, Greek and Italian specials and fried sardines and anchovies. A much better selection of wines than you will find in your run-of-the-mill fish restaurant and probably better than the stuff they serve at most art openings.
