What should I order at Market?

I have reservations for pre-theater dinner at Market this weekend. I'm wondering if there are any dishes that are outstanding and can't be missed.

    I recommend the Striped Bass with nut and seed crust and sweet and sour broth.

      I like their rice cracker crusted tuna and black truffle pizza apps as well as their chocolate cake. The entrees were good but did not stand out (which explains why i cant recall what i had), but I remember the meal as a whole being lovely.

        The pork chop was outstanding! Their ginger margarita was great too :)

          this is a pretty small menu; do they have daily specials?

            It has been a while so I don't remember all the details of what we ordered. I know I ordered a salad that was unimpressive. Then I ordered an appetizer that many people had recommended in reviews. It was tuna coated in a panko crust. This was good for one or two bites, but not as a meal as I intended it to be. It was too rich for that. I was trying to order something light, but it didn't work out well. My mom had a fish entree. I think it was bass served over vegetables. She loved it. Dessert was a molten chocolate cake which was delicious.

            I would not go back. The atmosphere was a little stiff.
