Kingfish Hall for dinner

shellicopter Jun 11, 2008 08:51 AM

Hi, I'm getting dinner with some friends at Kingfish Hall tomorrow night, I've looked over the menu but none of the entrees really stand out. Any recommendations? I'm looking for something relatively light and fresh and definitely from the sea. Thanks!

    I think they make a good lobster roll. In fact, I like it better than Neptune Oyster.

      Do you know if they offer this at dinner? How is it prepared? Thanks!

        Sorry that I saw this too late to answer, but I would assume they would have it in the evening. They prepare it lightly coated with mayo served in a perfectly toasted brioche. The roll really makes the sandwich. it was served with a cone of fries. So, what did you end up having?

          Thanks, something came up and we were unable to go, still plan on going in the near future so all advice is still useful, thanks! I ended up going to my new favorite restaurant, Toraya, last night, never a bad meal....I'll let you know how Kingfish goes whenever it happens!

            No lobster roll at dinner, just pan-roasted $45, crispy asian style mkt, and lobster bake mkt.

        I have always loved the tuna tartar and actually think that it is one of the best in the city. Recently I waited on a server from KfH, and I mentioned this to her. She happily slapped her boyfriend on the arm and said "See! I told you so!". Apparently she feels the same. You could possibly get a double order of it?

          In this heat, it's probably not a great choice, but I've always liked their chowders. Made properly; not thick and gummy.

          Also, any fish in miso is usually pretty tasty there.

            I second the tuna tartar - it is amazing. My usual order is a chowder (ok, but the lobster bisque that used to be on the menu was much better) followed by the tuna tartar. Maybe if the temperature hasn't dropped you could substitute some oysters for the chowder, but I guess that depends on whether you are OK with a fully-raw meal. I also really like their calamari.

              I've been there a couple of times and never been too impressed; touristy and indifferent service.
