FISH: It Must Be Friday


Whenever in Sausalito, I always try to make it over to one of my favorite restaurants. This restaurant specializes in, you guessed it....FISH. It follows that it is aptly named.......FISH.

Since it was Friday, I felt it was appropriate to let you know where the best fish on the Northwest coast of California could be found. A couple of weeks ago, Tim and I made it over to FISH and I had the most incredible trout I have ever had. Moist, tender and a hint of smokey flavor, this trout must have been 15" long. It was served on what was really a platter, not a plate, with grilled corn on the cob and beet salad. We also got a side of succotash made with the sweetest corn, fresh baby tomatoes, green and yellow string beans and fresh basil. FISH is a place that takes pride in local and sustainable ingredients and has amazing specials every day. (I also had the Sweet Potato, Pea soup with Creme Fresh). It is a very casual setting, but do not be fooled. The food is creative and perfectly prepared.

I could have settled in at the picnic table outside the restaurant and nibbled on the delicious fish all day while watching the boats come in and out of the marina. Hope you have a chance to stop in!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Okay…you know that it is never good when your taste buds kick you up a notch and you realize you do not have the ingredients to prepare such a delicacy and have to jump in the car for the fish market prior to closing time!

Way to make us drool!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XO,

I'm about to start crying--that trout looks so yummy and Sausalito is a long drive from Pasadena. Thanks. Mary

I miss living in the Bay Area and enjoying all of the amazing restaurants! Now I know where I will eat when I am there next time though! Also, thanks for the sweet comment on my post about Copenhagen. I agree about the kids though - even my kids are more traveled than me, since we take them along on most trips...when I was their age I hadn't left the US yet and they have been to something like 15 countries already! I guess it grows with each generation. :) Have a great weekend...Barbara

Katie! I almost posted the same exact experience! Chris and I shared the trout a couple of weeks ago... and agree, it is the best we have ever had. We love FISH, get there early, there's always a line, and bring cash!

Wish we had run into each other!
