Restaurateur Chuck Perley's Thompson Street follow-up to his long-lived spot on King Street, Le Pescadou, is just blocks (and a syllable) away from the original. With dark wood floors and tables, and a front that opens up completely to the street, the space is airy and soothing, while a chandelier over the sole booth in the back corner adds a bit of opulence. If the name didn't already give it away, the sign out front and matching stained-glass fisherman inside lets you know what the focus is here. Starters include the usual clams and oysters, as well as some non-raw options like the roasted calamari with a spicy piri piri sauce. The captain's specialty menu offers half-portions. Grilled octopus is served bare, perfectly charred and tender; bass is also grilled and topped with a toasty tomato-walnut relish. Meat entrees like the Montreal smoked brisket served with red wine mustard and two variations of sweet potatoes reflect a bistrolike sensibility. From the rotating selection of desserts, the berries in a champagne gel, topped with creamy mascarpone, provide a sugar rush—and a buzz—but the dish remains light nonetheless.Brunch
