Planning on going to starfish on friday, has anyone been recently, I heard the chef has left, Martha, so just wondering if it is still the same quality or it has suffered....
The new chef was the lunch chef, he was promoted. He has worked tehre several years and I have never heard anyone complain about the quality of the lunches in fact he is the one who did their fancy "fish & chips" that everyone raves about.
I do not think you will be dissapointed...
For me, a place like that is gonna be more about the fresh ingredients than the chef.
The former lunch chef has probably made everything on the menu anyway.
Should be great.
Were there about a couple of weeks ago. The cooked food was as good as ever. Had the pan seared/roasted Florida black garoupa with creamed corn ravioli and chanterelle. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce was heavenly. I also had a West coast vs East coast oyster tasting. Now that it is September, you should call to see whether the 'flats' have arrived. French Belons and Irish Gallway...etc. Yum!!!!!!!
Ask the shuckers what's showing best on the bed and they'll put together a nice mixed plate. If you like briney: if they have the Gallway Flats and Clarenbridge Irish oysters definitely check them out. And Colville Bay oysters from Souris Bay in PEI are great (more earthy, briney qualities than your typical Malpeque). Olympias from the West Coast are also great.
I agree with Charles that the fish dish with corn ravioli and chanterelles is great. They've been changing up the fish with the dish based on what's on offer and what's freshest.
