The Oceanaire or Blue Sea Grill?
I am taking my husband out for his birthday this weekend and wanted to take him to a really nice seafood restaurant in Baltimore. I have narrowed it down to the oceanaire or blue sea grill but can't decide which one. Both seem really nice. I am not a HUGE seafood fan (my husband loves it), but I like Shrimp and Crab. Any suggestions? Are they about the same in quality/price? Thanks!
I have been to both once during restaurant week.
I think Oceannaire was really mediocre. The restaurant week menu wasn't slaying me, so I did not even order off it (they were out of bluefish and there's no way I'm paying 30 bucks for someone to cook me flounder that I can get cheaply and do better). They were also out of a lot of fish including standard tuna which I found rather astonishing. Maybe it was restaurant week, but everything I had was mediocre at best. I had a rockfish for my main course and found it poorly executed (very soggy skin, even if it was served with sauce, I am assured that without the sauce it would've been impossible to penetrate without a knife). The fish was also overcooked.
My experience at Blue Sea Grill was much better. I did get the restaurant week menu, and found every dish solid (not spectacular).
