Little Fish, Philadelphia Pa

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
