As many of you know, my good friend Trivia Art runs a popular local website called Foobooz, where he searches out the best food and drink deals in town. Every Tuesday, he’s gonna come on this website to talk about some of his favorite spots around town that are also a great deal. Here’s his first:
If you’re familiar with Foobooz at all, a guide to eating and drinking in Philadelphia you know it serves multiple masters. On one hand it aims for a place in the foodie’s heart, highlighting what’s new and coming soon on
Philadelphia’s dining scene as well as what’s creating the loudest buzz. On the other hand Foobooz is a frugal boozer’s good friend, putting the spotlight on drink deals around our fair city.
So for my first column on johnnygoodtimes.com, which master to server? Well luckily there are places like Little Fish and their Sunday night prix fixe dinner. Just $28 gets you five courses of excellent seafood, and since it’s a BYOB, no expensive liquor bill.
The meal starts with a course of mussels in a delicious broth. The second course brings a salmon cake to the table. A light salad with goat cheese sets the stage for the main course and your first choice of the evening. Then expect to choose from three seafood dishes. Yesterday the choices were: Escobar, a Hawaiian butterfish, swordfish, and wild bass. Each entree was prepared simply, letting the fish be the star of the dish. A dessert choice of rice pudding, pot de chocolate and mango crisp finished up the “I can’t believe that good a meal was that inexpensive” night out.
Little Fish is a tiny spot in Queen Village at the corner of 6th and Catharine streets. It’s a small room and reservations are recommended. (215) 413-3464.
