Last Sunday night a bunch of friends and I popped by Red Fish for a fish fry. You can see Chef David Friedman back there (in the photo) bringing out platters of lightly battered, crispy fish; yellow perch, catfish and spelt all wild, all from Lake Erie. Sides were creamy coleslaw, herb seasoned fries and a great green salad in a tasty vinaigrette (and if you think you can get a well-seasoned vinaigrette just anywhere –you’d think, right?– you’d be wrong).
Red Fish is at 890 College, west of the lovely La Fromagerie (in case you need to pick up some 14 Arpents cheese) and they also serve brunch. All the seafood at Red Fish is seasonal and sustainable, they are a partner with Ocean Wise.
While there I perused the dinner and brunch menus which looked pretty delish. So thought I’d throw it out there on a SNOWY (snowy!) Sunday morning.
Steelhead Trout rillettes, comforting fish cakes and a steamy BC Albacore Tuna Melt all sound pretty good to me. And don’t worry, you can still get house made scones and double smoked bacon.
And here’s part of the dinner menu while I’m at it…
So now, you really only have to make yourself breakfast. A few spoons of peanut butter straight from the jar? Yep, that counts.
