Naked Fish Restaurant Review

: At Naked Fish, 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 menu (think coconut haddock, roasted mahi mahi and Cuban steak). The vibe is fun and infectious, if somewhat contrived. Go for the naked or wood-grilled fish showcasing nice filets that are simply brushed with oil and lemon then grilled over hardwood. Most entrées come with a choice of two sides, including sautéed plantains, black beans and rice, and stir-fried vegetables. Also offered are a hearty shrimp rice bowl, crab cake with shrimp and scallops, and Latin-style ribs made with roasted shallot jalapeño barbecue sauce. Still, we really come here for the specialty drinks like the Brazilian caipirinha and tropical cocktails such as the Cuban Lady, a sweet concoction of pineapple rum, melon liquor and pineapple. Finish with the peanut butter mousse topped with chocolate ganache.
