THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Naked Fish Restaurant Review

: On the Quincy Milton-line, Latin music pulses through the speakers as you approach and the beat follows you as you enter. In a spot that’s seen its share of restaurants come and go, early on this one appears to have staying power as attested to by the nightly 10-15 wait (longer on weekends). The look is bright and conceptually tropical with a lot of wood trim, bright colors and some fish murals. Drinks from the islands play a big role and the menu is heavily seafood with the eponymous naked fish the star. Nothing fancy, ten or so varieties (including lobster) of seafood are brushed with oil and lemon and simply grilled over hardwood. We liked our naked mahi mahi better than the non-naked Chilean sea bass that was roasted with Mediterranean spices and briny olives. Most entrées come with two sides chosen from a long list that mixes its food metaphors as plantains and rice and beans are all there along with maple-glazed carrots and sautéed mushrooms and onions. It can be very noisy and the Latin beat doesn’t let up.
