THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED 7 Restaurant Review

: This tiny 38-seater with an open kitchen, candlelit tables and soothing seashore colors encourages family-style dining for its wild, line-caught seafood and shareable sides. Here's the drill: Fish is priced by the ounce or whole. Choose your fish, weight, style of preparation and sauce. It's all à la carte and the menu changes nightly because the fish is flown in daily. We enjoyed flaky, moist salmon and grilled snapper accompanied by a wide assortment of sauces, some of which were outstanding. Sweet sea-fresh seared scallops were doused in a lovely lemon-thyme beurre blanc. Plates are prettily garnished but not overly fussy. The wine list is well crafted. Beef tenderloin and pork chops make an appearance as non-fish alternatives. But why pass up the freshest catch in town?
