THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Famous Fish Co. Restaurant Review

: With locations in Cape Town and Durban, as well as London, Famous Fish Co. brings to Atlanta the latest in South African cooking. Chef-owner Bruce Scott presents a twist on seafood that originates in that glorious Cape country. Start with the Seabisque soup, a delectable fish-and-shellfish cream soup in a lobster-based stock. It's nearly impossible to stop your spoon. There are the standards born of tradition, such as fish 'n' chips. More unusual, the pans are the specialties stamped with the cooking of South Africa: prawns, shellfish and maybe a chicken liver or two in various combinations form the crux of these dishes. The peri-peri sauce on the prawn 'n' chicken pot is a bit timid, in deference to middle-of-the-road tastes. So ask for some extra to ratchet up the heat factor and bring it closer to authentic. For dessert, order the Malva, a traditional South African-style dessert that features a sponge cake soaked in brandy-butterscotch sauce. This wine list is, appropriately, focused on South Africa. Authenticity enthusiasts note: These folks have rooibos tea.
