A restaurant that specialized in Ugly Fish
I am looking for the name of a restaurant that was featured in the Food Network several years ago. It specialized in serving very ugly species of fish in unusual manners such as a large black toothy fish curled with it's tail in it's mouth. The restaurant owner said "The uglier the fish, the sweeter the taste" I think it may have been located in NYC. Any idea what the name of this place is or was?
There was a restaurant in NYC called the John Dory, now closed but the chef (April Bloomfield? Not sure...) opened a new seafood restaurant who's name escapes me. I never ate there, but the john dory itself is a pretty ugly fish...very thin and flat, but with a very big, narrow head. Most are silvery with a black spot near the tail. Delicious if you can find it...very firm meat.
