  • Expect their smoked-mahi fish to be copied by other restaurants around the country. There's no script to follow. It's just two guys with two restaurants cooking food they want to eat.
  • Everything we ordered was delicious, but we REALLY loved the albacore!
  • The most popular dish? Definitely the fried chicken sandwich, with coleslaw and what must be the only aioli on the planet spiked with Rooster hot sauce.
  • This sophomore effort from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal features seafood-centric fare inside a nautical-inspired space. [Eater 38 Member]
