Executive chef Abel Gonzalez of Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar at the Village on Venetian Bay is recognizing National Seafood Month during October by featuring three seafood dishes each week in addition to his regular menu.

Most of the dishes are original recipes invented by his grandmother and father while they lived in Cuba, he says. Gonzalez says he came to the United States when he was a youngster but still remembers the delectable flavors of the fresh caught seafood served in his home.

Visit the restaurant at 4270 Gulf Shore Blvd., N., Naples, 239-649-5552, to try the following delectable choices during October:

■ Caribbean crispy snapper, baked grouper Vera Cruz and grilled Cobia over lentil ragout will be available Oct. 1 through 7.

■ Oct. 8 through 14 features are clams, mussels and scallop dishes with linguine and clams in white wine sauce, pan roasted mussels in white wine seafood broth and a hearty New England clam chowder.

■ Oct. 15 through 21 the feature is shrimp: baked stuffed shrimp with risotto and lobster cream, classic shrimp scampi over black rice with Provenal and grilled shrimp skewers.

■ The last week of the month, Oct. 22-31, features are lobster: lobster pie, baked lobster tail and Gonzalez' father's favorite lobster enchilado with rice and vegetables.
