Fish Place on College/ Little Italy: Review

Schmal | Apr 21, 2005 02:42 PM

My 4 year old and I were biking through little Italy on the weekend and, being famished, decided to get a quick bite to eat. Not wanting to visit one of the local boite's, I was resigned to having a cardboard-y slice from John's Classic Italian when we walked past the Fish Store on College, south side, just west of Grace. Not even sure if that's the name of it, actually.

Anyway, they were advertising fish sandwiches. We went in and were graciously greeted by the hostess/ front of house (it's so small, there is ONLY a front of house)/ cashier. She pointed out the fish and talked about them a little. We chose one grouper sandwich (on special, $5.99) and a wild salmon sandwich ($6.99). I guess I figured the filets would be taken, tossed onto the little George Foreman type grill they have for their cooking, tossed onto a piece of stale bread with a squirt of Mayo and a tasteless slice of Tomatoe. How wrong I was!

The filets were doused in some sort of sauce (not sure what it was comprised of: olive oil, perhaps parsley, salt and pepper, a few other herbs and spices) and put onto the aformentioned grill. It was cooked perfectly: not too much nor too little. It was put into a fresh bread with some tasty tomato and given to us on a plate (no disposables: I was pleased to see this).

The result was fresh, very well cooked, and extremely tasty. Can't really say too much more about it than that. A perfect anti-fastfood antidote, and I'll definitely go back for a second try.
