nicely done grilled bluefish at Out of the Blue (Davis Sq)
I've always been afraid to try bluefish dishes because bluefish tests to get pretty odd tasting after a day or two because it's an oily fish, but Out of The Blue does a good job with it.
It served over risotto and topped w/ a nicely done tomato sauce that doesn't overpower it. Fish was cooked perfectly too.
Surprised more people don't eat lunch here. Cost isn't that bad...$12-13 for the specials and a lot of other lunch options have crept into the $10 range with this being healthier...
I usually get baked scallops with a side of pasta for $18. Generous portion of scallops, always good, but very no-frills type meal on the whole. My mom always requests a dinner at Out of the Blue when she visits. It's hilarious because for years she's been saying "why can't they open a good, basic seafood restaurant like this near me?" She lives in Westchester county, NY so not exactly the middle of nowhere. Last week when she was here, I finally pointed out the obvious-- "mom, they can't open a new restaurant like this because this one has pre-existing customers who've been eating here for decades. No one is going to finance a new launch of somewhere that serves baked scallops on a broiler platter. And the blue-haired ladies and gents who eat here aren't going to move to NY."
I've only gone there for lunch unfortunately, but dug this menu up via Google:
Pretty reasonable prices...but I'd agree w/ the Yelp comments on the decor and the boring italian bread, just didn't think they took pricing into context.
I'd actually recommend against the stuffed calamari but it depends what you expect it to be stuffed with. I think it was stuffed w/ a mostly bread crumb mixture. I had some seafood (crab meat/shrimp) stuffed calamari from the Fresh Pond Whole Foods' seafood counter a few years back that I wish I could find again....best I've ever had and sadly, Out of the Blue's paled in comparison...
