trapped online


it was a fantastic fancy tasting menu restaurant and nearly died because it was 13 courses plus wine. pix and review to follow under the fold. very picture heavy, careful if you're doing some tinyweb thing or have a low data plan

first off, here's the menu. refer to it for the following:


I skipped out of work early to finally attend a smelt fry. They're a rare fish that's only available in early spring and I keep missing them every year until today.

If you're not a Midwesterner, smelt are little fish, maybe 4 inches long, that you eat whole (sans head). Imagine baby cod.

You know what, it was just fine. They're not a very flavorful sweetfish, but it's pleasing to crunch on their little tails. I probably won't go out of my way to do this again, but I'm glad I finally went.

I guess I'm spoiled by my stinky preserved fish and don't like deep fried anymore.

It was super greasy so I got off the bus a few stops early and bikeshared home to help digest it a little.
