Sneak Review: Rickenbacker Fish Company and Market

A little bait just to get you hooked on next week's Cafe review:

The fish we sampled was undeniably fresh...Composed plates include grilled mahi fillet, blackened and capped with pineapple salsa...and wasabi-coated tuna with balsamic glaze and pickled ginger. The owners proudly tout their focus on serving "the freshest locally sourced fish," and rightly so; the sweetness of a recently-hooked fish is easily discerned. But when buried under such garish garnishing, the pristine product may as well have been imported from Disneyland. This is the sort of coverup treatment you give seafood when it isn't fresh.
The linguini with shrimp in photo, incidentally, is the answer to Monday's Where It At?
