THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Naked Fish Restaurant Review

: In this outpost of the Latin-seafood mini-chain founded by Bertucci's whiz Joey Crugnale, what you hear is a big part of what you get: salsa, samba and so forth set the stage for a Cuban-Caribbean-inflected menu. The vibe is fun and infectious, if somewhat contrived. Go for the naked or wood-grilled fish showcasing some nice filets that are simply brushed with oil and lemon then grilled over hardwood. Most entrées come with a choice of two sides as well; the plantains aren’t bad given that authenticity is not the spot's strong suit. Also interesting are the sweet potatoes mashed with bananas and the orange-scented black beans. Still, it’s the tropical cocktails we really come for.
