There’s a new seafood-centric restaurant in town that’s got reasonable prices – and no – it’s not a seafood boil.
The new eatery opened on June 27, it doesn’t take resos, their menu changes daily, and they have a patio – sounds chill enough, right?
Taking over the former space of Baccano Restaurante and Lounge at 1889 West 1 Avenue, OddFish seats around 50 people, and with overstuffed banquet seating, an open kitchen, and a whimsical mural of aquatic life sprawled across the wall, it seems like it could quickly become a neighbourhood gem.
And if the comfy seats don’t win patrons over, than the prices of the mostly-Ocean Wise seafood will. It’s near impossible for an eatery to price seafood at what some would consider “cheap” prices, but having reasonable price tags – AKA nothing too close to fine dining norms – is definitely welcomed (and needed) in this city.
Diners here can expect a selection of oysters, cured and seasoned cold offerings like Ahi Tuna Poke and Side Strips Ceviche, and mussels, clams, and scallops, along with vegetable dishes, and some pretty drool-worthy sounding pastas, such as Pesto Linguine and Spaghetti Vongole.
Affordable and unpretentious seafood? We like the sound (and taste) of that.
Address: 1889 West 1 Avenue, Vancouver
