THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sally's Fish Camp Restaurant Review: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED If there’s one thing New England is famous for among foodies, it’s its ramshackle fishhouses, sitting on the side of some seaside thoroughfare where it smells as though the tide’s just come in. Good as the eats might be, everything else likely as not leaves something to be desired. Sally’s Fish Camp, a downtown, upscale twist on the genre, aims to change the notion that sparkling seafood accompanies a shoddy (or corny nautical) ambience. Soft lighting, fine art, plush booths and exposed wood define the dining room; a mellow mood suffuses the bar. While the menu features plenty of authentic items---lobster rolls, steamers, fried goods---it also does inventive dishes with verve. We especially like the diver scallops with shrimp-and-pea risotto drizzled in a rich leek crème and the “campfire”-grilled trout served with citrus salsa over roasted potato-artichoke hash. Land-lovers needn’t worry either; the Gorgonzola-crusted New York strip is notable.
