Our readers swooned over Fishbar this year, and it’s easy to see why – they offer a changing menu of fresh seafood at very modest prices. Best of the BeachThere are places that are somewhat more expensive that offer cooking as good, and somewhat good that are cheaper, but Fishbar hits the balance perfectly. Chef Jessica Jordan and her crew can turn out order after order of simply grilled fish, but they are also capable of much more complex items – watch the specials list for the more ambitious offerings. When Fishbar opened, people wondered if the accent would be on the first or second syllable. Our readers confirm that the word fish is paramount.
