SD - Sea Rocket Bistro (old Linkery location)

Folks,

Looks like the old Linkery spot is being replaced by Sea Rocket Bistro -- a seafood oriented farm to table restaurant or as they call it "boat to throat" ;-)

Website is up at:

Glad to see the foundation Jay created with the Linkery will continue with this new venture.

They plan to open next month.

And man, that sea urchin bisque sounds good...

      No kidding. My mother will be so happy. Actually, I think the whole menu looks rather enticing. I'm kind of liking the looks of the green bean salad and how about an emu burger...

    2. I think they are trying to keep it "local" seafood, which I'm looking forward to. I may be mistaken, but I think Jay is involved with this venture on some small level.

        In light of Taras Grescoe's recently published, _Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood_, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch, it will be interesting to see which fishes they choose to include and exclude from the menu.

        So far it is noteworthy that none of the top predator fishes are on the menu, despite their popularity.

        kudos

      2. The sample menu looks fab!
        Thanks for posting this Ewilensky!

        1. Damn!

          Grilled Grape Leaf-Wrapped Fish, stuffed with lemon zest and mint and coated in a hot pepper oil

          1. I think Jay has to sublet their old site, so he wanted something that was similar in concept to Linkery. Sounds interesting, I will definitely check it out.
