    Any good fishing spots in Vegas?

    As a New Englander I can’t imagine seeking out seafood in Vegas. There is a time and a place for everything.

    You can literally see the fishing boats from your table in some of my favorite places.

    Do you remember the No Name restaurant in South Boston Daly? You’d have to step over the fish heads and slime to enter. They were famous for throwing rolls at you if you wanted more bread. Cash only. Legend

    I just wanted to crawl under my desk and take a nap (Seinfeld) after lunch there

    I was more a north end guy than a southie guy but ive heard stories.

    Every year i make the trek to Maine for a fried seafood plate….. was close to $75 last year but it fed three adults and there were leftovers for lunch.

    Im with San on this one in general. Doesnt mean you cant have fish in vegas Im just not sure I would seek it out. I went to Denver last year and we went on a mountain tour where we drove by Elk. Made it a point to find a stockyard with Bison, pheasant……. And the best Elk I have ever tasted. Food is def done best with a “when in rome” attitude.

    The commercial fishing boats came into south Boston down summer street (kuntmissioner can correct me - lousy with street names) and the fish processing plants were down there - and in turn the wholesale distribution guys. I was at the source. Jimmys Harborside was legend before the redevelopment.

    Seedy, always little hustle going on too but just epic seafood.

    If you're going to get seafood in Vegas, make sure it's at a higher end place, and make sure before you order that the fish is fresh, not frozen.

    Speaking of eating seafood among the locals, I found a weird phenomenon in Prince Edward Island, Canada. I had remembered a great lobster dinner I had there in the '80s. When traveling there in 2019, I wanted to basically repeat that. I was shocked that every fucking lobster place in PEI wanted to serve it cold. I must have made like 5 different stops at restaurants in PEI looking for that great lobster experience, and each one conceded that it's a cold dish.



    Finally I gave up. I said, "Maybe in Halifax (Nova Scotia -- where we were heading next) we can go to a nice restaurant and there will be a normal lobster dinner there."

    And indeed there was, BUT... many of them had a "19 and over policy" (equivalent to 21 in the US) because they wanted to serve alcohol without worrying about IDing. So I couldn't go to them because of Benjamin.

    Finally I found one which both allowed kids AND served lobster the way I expected it. Was very good, though I forgot the name of it.

    Still, the inability to find a non-cold lobster dish in PEI was pretty shocking.

    That is really strange. P.E.I. Is lobster central. It’s integral with tourism.
    There is no such thing as a 19 and over restaurant in Canada. That is a bar. Bars will serve a cold dish because they are a bar.

    All licensed restaurants in Canada welcome patrons of any age and serve alcohol to those of age. I’m guessing you were a late night diner and didn’t know where to go

Keep in mind if you are with a date and get a bottle of wine you are not getting out of there for under $400. Yeah I don't care how much you are worth, the tab stings.

    Yes, this is correct, although I have not been back to the Chicago location since before the pandemic. But yeah, it was great, but is was absurdly expensive. I mean some stone crab, two pieces of fish and a bottle of generic wine then tip, $410 total. I get it, it's a 5 star restaurant, but I felt walking out of there it was just too much. $250, ok, but not $410. I doubt I will be back. It's not an affordability issue I just hate getting ripped off. Kind of like when I stayed at the Polynesian Village at Disney World for $525 a night. It was a room like a Holiday Inn outside the park like a mile drive. Not doing that again either. Whatever.
