I recently had the pleasure (if you can call it that) of dining at Fish last Thursday. It was recommended by 417 magazine as the best seafood restaurant in town, more on that later. The restaurant is nice, new. But you can’t help to get the feeling that it is owned by some large corporate sixteen pieces of flair type Company. Service was nice, friendly and seemed to have a great attitude but… This is supposed to be the best seafood restaurant in town. I expected more than “Hi my name is, what would you like to drink?”. After looking at the menu I knew this was not what we were looking for. We decided to lower our expectations, and take this outing as what it was, cheap eats at an ok restaurant. The bread was served, and it was good. Fried, maybe, but I liked it. I tried the lemon shrimp (A classic at any old school bistro, hard to mess up) and it was quite good. My Friend had the mussels and frites without the same results. As a recent transplant from NY, I can tell fresh mussels from frozen, and these just didn’t make the grade. We moved on to the entrée’s and things went down from there. Reading the menu descriptions was not only disgusting (some things just don’t go together), but confusing. I opted for the safe bet, seafood enchiladas, “James’ mother’s recipe”. My friend had the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. After playful banter to my friend telling her wrapping things in bacon is not only corny, but juvenile, our entrée’s came out. My enchiladas were horrible, soggy, and I could not tell what kind of “seafood” was in seafood enchiladas. The sauce didn’t even meet our lowered expectations of the restaurant. Which caused me to “eat crow” from my friend, whose best part of her dish was the juvenile bacon that was wrapped around the shrimp. Over all, I don’t know who to blame, 417 for advertising that they are the best seafood restaurant, the chef for their horrible food, or myself for believing what I read. If you want cheap eats, go to insert chain here. If you want great seafood… Look else where, I know I will.
