The old school of American seafood cookery believes in the following: fry it, then serve with a lemon wedge. That sounds a little simplistic, we know, but believe us: when chefs perfect the art of batter-­frying there are few better ways to consume something from the sea. The cooks at Jack Dempsey’s are in that hallowed, great fry-and-broil fraternity. You may not think there’s a lot of art or pretty edges to a catfish platter and fries, but bite into that firm flesh overflowing with salty, delicious grease and you’ll realize this kitchen is working in its own rarefied air.
