Yesterday the weather was beautiful and after touring the Headhouse market, shopped around town and took in some sights, we headed over to Little Fish for our 6:00 PM reservation.
Sunday is different than other days here, on Sunday a 5 course tasting is offered for the unbelievable low price of $28.00.
Considering the extremely high quality and creativity of the food, this is one heck of a bargain.
Fresh French bread was served with a pureed blend of olive oil and fresh herbs, making a delicious and addictive dipping sauce for the bread.
The portions for this tasting are sensibly sized and make for total enjoyment of the meal.
Here is what we had:
1st course: Bibb lettuce, Vinaigrette dressing, fine herbs.
2nd course: Risotto with mussels, white corn, thyme with a culinary foam on top.
3rd course: Skate Sicilian style which consisted of olives, tomatoes, capers in a light sauce.
4th course: Mahi Mahi with marinated grape tomatoes and cous cous.
5th course: Key Lime tart with blueberry sauce and whipped cream.
All the courses were distinctive, flavorful and wonderfully prepared. We honestly can't say which was a favorite as the were all great.
Little Fish is a TINY restaurant although the tables are spaced such as you have your own area and don't feel crowded. Maybe room for 24 inside and a few tables outside.
Service was warm, friendly and very efficient.
Little Fish is BYO making it even more of a bargain, we enjoyed a 2004 Kosta Browne Pinot with dinner.
The chef here is quite talented and we can highly recommend Little Fish based on our meal last night
