One last London post: FISH! Restaurant

Pat Hammond | Jul 16, 2003 03:33 PM

While we were on our "Victorian London" walking tour, our guide made a remark about a new restaurant in the Borough Market area. It's new, splashy, and doesn't exactly fit with the period of the area. But we were hungry after walking around and went back to check it out. It's called FISH! (exclamation point included) on Cathedral St., Borough Market.
This was likely our most expensive meal, and it was a lunch. I'm mercifiully blocking on what it cost. But it was really good. It's all about seafood and they know how to cook it. I had skate that was as large as a dinner plate and beautifully grilled. My companion had a "fish cake" that was very large, breaded with what looked to be Panko crumbs, filled with all kinds of seafood, served on a delicious sauce. For an appetizer, we had rocket salad with something else, I can't remember what, with a tangy, creamy dressing. My skate hid a large portion of haricot verts that were perfectly cooked, the other dish was accompanied by wonderful spinach. They do vegetables as well as they do the fish.
The funny thing was, I ordered tonic and lime and got tonic and some lime flavored stuff, perhaps Rose's. But it was refreshing.
