Delighted by Bondi Road on the Lower East Side

Just got back from a dinner at Bondi Road and had a really good experience. The space is adorable, small, open to the outdoors, with huge photo montages of Bondi Beach (which I learned today is pronounced Bond-eye, not Bond-ee like I had thought.) It is primarily a fish restaurant, though I saw a burger going past us that looked terrific. You have the option of ordering fish grilled, fried or broiled in crumbs. I had the sea trout grilled and my friend had the barramundi fried. My trout was grilled very rare - it was delicious so I enjoyed it, but if you like fish cooked through you should let them know. Fish comes with a side - very affordable at $15 per and generous portion to boot. I had the mixed greens (light and yummy) and my friend had the potato scallops which were, as far as I could tell, huge slices of potato battered and fried, a bit bland. Service was extremely friendly and accomodating. The only drawback is that all the tables are bar height, not too comfortable. Anyway, I really liked it and highly recommend it for a bite of fish in a casual atmosphere.
