THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fishmonger Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: This location of Fishmonger's continues the fish-themed décor, with wire-sculpted fish hanging from the ceiling near the bar and painted murals of Mediterranean-feeling fishing scenes. You'll find crisp calamari with a well-seasoned tomato sauce or tartar sauce. Very good Louisiana oysters are served either raw or Rockefeller. The saffron-scented Fishmonger stew, chunky with fresh fish and shellfish, perks up with a little saffron, and the popular paella is offered. Soft-shell crab is served only in season, so they're never frozen. Nigerian prawns sautéed in a spicy garlic-paprika sauce may be ordered either by the pound or half-pound (a generous ration). Anyone who has passed through Stellenbosch in the Western Cape of South Africa may have visited the Fishmonger in that delightful town, but this one is completely different in atmosphere; it's much quieter for one thing and much more artfully designed. We think the food's better here, too. The constantly evolving wine list offers a few South African choices but is rigorously New World. Also located at 4969 Roswell Rd., Ste. 160, Atlanta, 404-459-9003; and 609 Holcomb Bridge Rd., Roswell, 770-993-1600.
