The day is finally here: Stiltsville Fish Bar is open! The seafood concept from culinary powerhouses Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth is ready to welcome patrons for a relaxed, delicious dinner. This past summer, we got a preview of Stiltsville’s offerings at the actual Stiltsville, and if that was any indication, the restaurant should already be firing on all cylinders out of the gate.
During our preview, we enjoyed items like Green Eggs & Ham (green deviled eggs, country ham, pickles), Smoked Fish Dip and Wood-Grilled Oysters. All of these items make an appearance on the restaurant’s final menu, and they’re joined by the likes of other Snacks and Small Plates such as Smokin’ Havana Scallop, Buffalo Fish Wings, Cobia Tiradito and Sweet Corn Spoon Bread.
Expect generous Large Plates like Shrimp N’ Grits and Gremolata and Bone Marrow Crusted N.Y. Strip. There’s even a Big Fish for 2 (crispy whole yellowtail snapper) if you and your dining partner are particularly hungry. To wash everything, choose from one of the many refreshing cocktails available. Libations include the Oaxacan Paradise (Vida Mezcal, Hamilton Jamaican Black, pineapple juice, lemon juice, Orgeat, chocolate bitters) and the Stone Fruit Reviver (Bombay Sapphire, Lillet Blanc, apricot liqueur, lemon juice, peach bitters).
For right now, the restaurant is open for dinner daily. Weekend brunch, lunch, and a daily fish market with grab-and-go options will launch at a later date. We’ll see you there.
