Atlanta Fish Market, Pharr Road, Atlanta
Since I really like Seafood the
Atlanta Fish Market sounded like a good place to head for dinner. Valet parking seems to be all the rage in the US, mainly also due to the fact that inner city public transport tends to be slightly underdeveloped. Nevertheless Atlanta is surprisingly green, the abundance of trees is astonishing and if you head up to the Sun Dial Bar you can see for yourself. We got a booth in a quiet corner of the restaurant and study the menu. I start of with some Oysters and some crab cakes. I really liked the crab cakes, the were juicy, slightly sweet and went nicely with the sauce. The fish menu is huge (almost too large for my liking) but the most natural choice was a Rainbow trout from the Georgia Mountains. It was expertly cooked, moist flesh and crunchy skin, paired with some mashed potatoes laced with scallion. It was a simple, tasty and good dish with a strong local connection (I skipped the shrimp cocktail since they were from the Philippines). If you’re into seafood and want a decent restaurant, this certainly is a safe bet.
