I have been ordering the whole fish entree in a variety of restaurants throughout NYC for the past 10 years. From Italian to Thai to Greek. Althought the flavor is usually outstanding and I dont mind extracting the meat I am usually still hungry when I am finished. The kicker is, this dish is consistently one of the more expensive items on the menu.
For me the Whole Fish has gone the way of the crab cake, I just never order it any more.
