John Dory Fish is Here!

We have an incredible fish for the special this weekend. John Dory is a fish primarily know in the waters around New Zealand, in fact it is the first sampled by Captain James Cook on his voyage there in 1769. John Dory is also St. Peter’s Fish, the story being that Peter plucked one from the water and left the black spot on the side of the round fish. It is a soft, flaky fish with a mild almost delicate sweet flavor, and a very clean finish. Normally you need to be in New Zealand to eat this fish, and the fish that comes to the Americas is usually frozen. But rarely a group will migrate through the Atlantic and these are caught off the coast of New Jersey. Amazing flavor, and very rare, how can you forgive yourself if you miss this?
