THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Fish & Co. Restaurant Review: Chef Louis Osteen brings coastal bounty deep inland for seafood-hungry Nashvillians at Fish & Co., one of three restaurants in his Music City trifecta. Saltwater delicacies are the main attraction. To wit, at the top of the menu Osteen offers a choice of salmon, grouper, scallops or shrimp simply grilled and utterly naked. He’s taking a gamble there, but when your stock is fresh (and his is), you’ve got nothing to hide. Digging deeper, you’ll find rainbow trout stuffed with crab, flanked by potatoes roasted in duck fat; pan-seared flounder with crab meat meunière; and a couple of steaks. There’s also a fine list of appetizers and sides that include frogs’ legs and all kinds of oyster preparations. Finally, there’s a raw bar, should you like your mollusks served cold. The wine list is very well-edited, particularly the white section. And in a rarity for a seafood-focused restaurant, the dessert list is more than an afterthought. Do make room for the cinnamon beignets with cream cheese ice cream or the apple bread pudding with bacon-pecan brittle and whiskey ice cream.
