The Fish Store ... if I lived in Toronto I'd be a regular

gomexico | Jun 1, 201001:23 PM     27

Searching (researching in advance) for off-the-beaten-path places to eat while in Toronto for the long (USA Memorial Day) weekend I came across a recent Toronto Star review for The Fish Store, on College St. in Little Italy. Exploring College St. and Little Italy yesterday I stopped at the postage stamp-sized restaurant for a fish sandwich ... and after having a wonderful sandwich I said to myself, "If I lived in Toronto again I'd become a regular at this place!"

The sandwich of the day was tilapia, but I'm no big fan of that fish ... so I looked over the dozen or so filets of fresh fish in the refrigerated case inside the 'wall of glass doors' of the restaurant and selected a 'caught in the wild' salmon. 5 minutes later my sandwich arrived at the small table I'd chosen situated on the small patio ... a sight to behold!

A heaping mound of grilled filet of salmon with a drizzle of balsamic-olive oil dressing with additional herbs and spices was layered into a soft but not too soft baguette with several leaves of lettuce. It was fresh and packed with flavor.

I'd have had, also, a bowl of the Manhattan Clam chowder ... but they were out. There are a few other things on the menu - mostly (but not all) fish-related - but I was uninterested and don't recall the details. Check the link to the restaurant's menu to learn more, below.

The Fish Store was a pleasant place to eat and spend an hour on a beautiful afternoon in Toronto ... and I wish there was something similar in Chicago.

I'll add a link to some of my photos, later today or tomorrow.
