Current Status: The narrow store front leads to a kitchen turning out fresh, sustainable fish sandwiches, but not ones that are goopy with mayo or breadcrumb-wrapped.  The shop focuses on fish and presents it as cleanly as possible.  You can add a few toppings and there are limited number of sides that change frequently.  It is a great alternative to a burger or a sub.  It is a Black-owned business that is just a few years old from a chef/entrepreneur with some serious credentials.  Do yourself a favor and give it a try.  Available for take-out or delivery (Caviar). Hours: Mon – Wed: 11 am – 8 pm; Thurs – Sat: 11 am – 9 pm.

If you are looking to support more Black-owned businesses in the area, then be sure to check out Anela Malik’s site (Feed the Malik) with an updating list of places that are open.
