I remember once ages ago, I posted my Top 10 Meals in Year X. A friend (I believe it was this one) kindly pointed out that I must have some sort of seafood fetish because a disproportionate number of dishes in my Top 10 were all seafood.
I’m from the East Coast. What can I say?
I grew up on baked clams, fried calamari, and freshly caught snapper, caught with my own bamboo pole. My brother and I used to catch our own blue claw crabs along the shore at my aunt and uncle’s house in Rhode Island. (This activity was known locally as “chicken neckin'” as you would ask the butcher for whatever scraps of chicken he was willing to give away. The necks it was. ) My mother is infamous for her salmon and broccoli…a simple dish, but she does it so extraordinarily well that it is a regular request from the relatives.
So yes, I like seafood.
Probably no surprise that I love GT Fish & Oyster then. I’ve been twice…once with my cousin George, once all by my lonesome. GT is good for the solo diner because you can eat at the bar. Easily so. I like that.
Lovely meals, both times.
Especially the Tuna Poke…mango, cucumber, and black sesame. Lovely.
The Verdict: I like GT Fish & Oyster. I’ll be back.
