The lowdown

This restaurant straddling the BQE in western Carroll Gardens provides delicious proof that the bargain-seafood concept works. Chef-owner Neil Ganic employs a fish-market conceit, with the daily catch on full display and the menu posted in a window pane overhead, and combines the simplest of preparations (red snapper, for instance) with the most comforting of presentations (most plates come with buttered vegetables and buttery mashed potatoes). The BYO policy keeps prices low and the space feels cozy and unpretentious.
