Tucked behind Arcata Square, Salt Fish House delivers more than just a pretty space to dine.
Interiors honor the simplistic colors of the sea. A blonde wood ceiling, etched octopus mural and hanging lights accentuate the crisp flavors of the cuisine.
Come hungry. The grilled oysters, charred octopus, halibut in brodo, and Maple Farms duck atop a parsnip puree prove that owners Dan and Pamela Wiley are here to stay.
The excellent wine list holds its own. The dessert winner is a brownie and pretzel bread pudding. All that good food is complemented by a waitstaff that might be the best in town.
