Not only has the man brought you crisp, artisanal pizzas and finger-licking barbecue, now he’s doing you a solid by sourcing the freshest, most delicious fruits of the sea.
Say hello to Fin, an upscale seafood hangout, opening Monday in the Design District.
Feel free to consider the cozy dining room your own personal Rockwell-esque Nantucket fish shack, complete with whitewashed wainscoting, vintage water skis mounted on the walls and weathered hardwood floors. Despite its urban setting (located within Eismann’s barbecue space Q), there’s a salty charm to the place, the kind of spot you’ll hit after a day at sea or a night spent perusing the galleries in Wynwood (nothing works up an appetite like an art walk).
Amidst all this breezy Kennebunkport quaintness, you’ll be intrigued by Eismann’s small, sea-loving menu—most entrees hail from Alaska day boats and the Oregon coast, and the wine list touts 29 wines for $29. Think plates of curried oysters, platters of Soft Shell Crab Tempura and bottles priced at little more than a cocktail would run you on South Beach.
But we still love you, South Beach.
