Last night, I went to Damis, an unassuming little Polish place on Manhattan ave in Greenpoint. I felt the need for some Bigos, Pierogi and a couple other polish treats. But the very friendly waiter pointed me to the trout, "the best thing on the menu. Then you come back and have the polish standards."
That's going to be very difficult. That trout was outstanding. Dusted in flour, quick fried in butter and lemon and served with a lemon-dill sauce over a bed of perfectly cooked vegetables, I don't know how I'm going to order anything else. Contrary to most stick to your ribs Polish food, this was light, subtle and melt-in-your mouth tender.
The fish wasn't overcooked, nor was it undercooked, as is so often the case these days. It was also served with a side of dill mashed potatoes. It went great with a bottle of Zwiec beer.
I'm going back!
