Little Fish

We had an excellent dinner Friday night at Little Fish at 6th and Christian. It is a tiny place where the focus is fish and they do it right. Perfectly fresh and perfectly cooked was the consensus for the three of us. There was a choice of about eight appetizers and eight or ten main courses (fish of course). The menu is on a chalk board so I expect that the dishes change rather frequently as the chef pleases. For appetizers we had steamed mussels, a dandelion and chicory salad, and roasted radiccio with melted fontina. The salad was our favorite. The bitterness of the greens was set off by a tangy house made dressing. We could have eaten bowls of it. The mussels were good in a flavorful ginger broth. The radiccio was good but I'd probably not get it again as it was a bit heavier than I wanted and the fontina was not the right foil for the radiccio, IMO. For mains we had pan seared Cod, Escobar and Spanish Mackerel. Each was excellent but I thought my cod on a bed of spinach was outstanding and we each argued passionately about the superiority of our respective entrees. For dessert we shared a coconut custard pie and an opera cake. The pie was good but the opera cake was great. About $40 pp. We vowed to return.
