With all of the raw appeal of a local fish shack, and all of the curated class of an upscale dining room, Prime Fish is serving terrifically fresh seafood, prepared with expert technique. The enclosed dining room surrounds a glass display case, exhibiting the day's just-caught cuts of tuna and salmon alongside towers of mussels, just across from the tree-shaded patio, decked with idyllic yellow lights. The restaurant's raw bar offers things like Maine lobster and king crab leg, in addition to the prerequisite oyster selection, and the not-so-raw bar offers a number of wines, beers, and creative house cocktails. With entrees like wok charred king salmon, swordfish schnitzel and monkfish piccata, the chefs at Prime Fish have clearly mastered a diverse spread of cultural culinary techniques -- but with some tasteful aquatic revisions.
