There have been many enthusiastic posts about the quality of goods and serivce at Fish Tales on Court Street, my own included. But for me yesterday was a new high.
I had read that bluefin tuna was easier to obtain this year than in the recent past, and asked Fish Tales to order some for me. Since I only needed about a pound, enough for dinner for 2, being willing to take the trouble was itself good on their part.
I phoned Friday to check, was was told yes, they had it. When I went to pick it up I was told a friend at the fish market had given it to them for free, AND THEY WERE PASSING THE FAVOR ON TO ME. There was no charge. In my experience, it doesn't get much better than that.
(The piece was over a pound, about 3 inches thick, and cooked up very well. Prepared au poivre and served with a light Provencal red. And it did have the texture of steak.)
