Lonely Planet review

There are many who claim BlackSalt serves both the best seafood and operates the best fish market in the city. We won’t lay those laurels down yet, but we’re also acknowledging that we hate having to drive or bus out here. As fish markets go, this one is very Georgetown-oriented, which is to say fresh, artesian, organic – and expensive. As restaurants go…well, we give it to the chef. The man loves cooking fish, finding new flavors, delving into whatever culinary pleasure one can ratchet out of a sole, skate or soft-shell crab. The shifting, innovative menu is spot-on about 80% of the time, which is a fine ratio by our math. Five- and seven-course tasting menus ($78/94) are also available.
