Blackfish Restaurant Review

: Caterer-turned-restaurateur Chip Roman brings his culinary prowess to Blackfish, an unpretentious little storefront BYOB along Conshohocken’s main drag. Roman, who worked at Vetri and Le Bec-Fin before starting his own catering company, lends a fine sensibility to a menu that sings with inventive touches. The menu changes daily and seasonal ingredients are front and center in dishes such as a first course of smoked Scottish salmon, crispy egg, Idaho potato, sour cream and mizuna, or a main course like swordfish with fava beans, potato dumplings, sugar snap peas and ham in a savory broth. Desserts are straightforward. Try the warm chocolate cake with caramel, malt and chocolate ice cream.

Blackfish-Conshy no good!
by Jenny7y on Fri Aug 22, 2008 5:52 am
 
I recently dined at Blackfish - Conshohocken and thought you would be interested in hearing about it. It is very cramped and very over priced for the portion size. Although it is thought to be "fine-dining" the little food we got was not even cooked correctly, (i.e. I ordered their version of a surf and turf which was two medium sized scallops and a 4"x4"x4" short rib, both very overcooked with less than a cup of potato crisp shavings as the sides. We left hungry and broke! Also, because the place is so cramped we heard the table next to us, who were obvious regulars, complain about their fish being overcooked and the waitress didn't take the dish back or discount their bill. The only nice thing about the place is it is BYO.
