New NYC Restaurant: Catch de Fish
Done stuffing yourself with fruitcake, candy canes and turkey with trimmings? We sure are. We were looking for something new and refreshing and Catch de Fish near Union Square delivered.
You'll find a complete departure from heavy holiday eats at this new, sparely decorated Thai spot. You just pick the type of fish you like (maybe salmon, snapper or sea bass) and your favorite sauce (like tamarind, penang or green curry) and the chefs do the rest.
If you're not into making the decisions, the menu also has dishes like New Zealand mussels, little neck clams, scallops in Thai chili basil sauce (called "Catch de Basil") and lamb chops with wasabi and Thai red chili paste sauce (that'd be "Catch de Fire"). You can also feast on soul-warming soups like hot and sour lemongrass or coconut.
Prices are very reasonable and, if you're the lunch type, you can take advantage of their $10 special which gets you two starters and an entree. A bonus? They're already delivering in the 'hood.
