Food Porn: Mary’s Fish Camp

Turned away by a long wait at the suddenly ultra-hip RedFarm, J and I trotted around the West Village looking for an appropriate replacement. Mary’s Fish Camp isn’t new to us, though we’ve been only the one time, and it’s certainly been a while in any case. Despite the absence of Tyrion Lannister, the place was nonetheless packed with a lively crowd. I ordered two raw oysters (really gotta start writing their names down), crawfish beignets, and the fish tacos. J had the fried clam and oyster appetizer as well as, what else, the lobster roll. Our only real complaints are that 1) fries of this miniscule girth continue to have no place at the table (really, there is just no flavor, and they’re so small they lose heat immediately), and 2) there’s perhaps an over reliance on dips and sauces (tartar, chipotle mayo, chili salsa). Still, it’s a great dinner spot. Check out the rest of the photos after the break.

    If it makes you feel any better, RedFarm sucks. It doesn’t suck as hard as Shang did (that would be impressive?), but it has similar fundamental flaws. Well basically the flaw is fusion=ick. We waited a long fucking time to get it, it was expensive, and I was really grumpy about it once it was all said and done.

    Actually that does make me feel better. Obviously I didn’t sample the food, but RedFarm seemed way too uptight. For some reason putting your name down took 15 minutes per person. Why make people who are eager to give you money wait like that? The whole place felt rude to me.
