Mitchell's Fish Market Restaurant Review

: Mitchell's Fish Market offers some 80 choices of finny food, all MSC “chain of custody” certified, from farm-raised to wild-caught. The country of origin is listed on the long line-up of fresh fish; the signature preparation is with ginger and scallions alongside sticky rice in rice wine soy sauce. Other specialties include cedar-planked salmon with balsamic eggplant and goat cheese, and combo platters that feature salmon, shrimp or mahi mahi. We also like the frutti di mare pasta with its shrimp, mussels, wild sea scallops and calamari sautéed in garlic butter and served over pappardelle with fresh tomato or white wine sauce. A few beef items are offered, too, along with a handful of salads. Among fun bar drinks is the “Cucumber Collins” made of Beefeater, muddled cucumber, ginger and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. There's also a nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle, along with a handful of microbrews. Monday evenings are oyster nights.
