Newish Seattle resident and restaurateur Michael Hebb (formerly Hebberoy) has struck again: Last Friday, he quietly—for him, anyway—opened up Fish Fry, a tiny fish shack on Pike Street in Seattle.
Where it is "The same spot as the beloved Frites, in between the rock club Neumos and the bar Moe, on Pike Street on Capitol Hill."
The concept "I did some One Pot dinners there and got inspired. Mike McConnell (of Caffe Vita and Via Tribunali) and I decided that what was missing in Seattle was perfectly fried fish. So Fish Fry is fresh fish primarily from local fishermen fried in a simple, light batter, served with handmade sauces based on pickles and preserves."
The space "It's mostly a stand-and-eat place. One whole wall of the establishment is covered with pickled cabbage, carrots, asparagus, and chile peppers."
The chef "Monica Dimas, formerly of Le Pichet and Campagne."
How it's involved with its neighbors "The whole menu, like battered and fried oysters and Pacific snapper, is also available next door at Moe."
What happens when Hebb, former Best New Chef Matt Dillon and rocker Jack White get together "We just had a Fish Fry One Pot meal in the basement of Neumos prepared by Matt Dillon and Monica Dimas for Jack White and the Raconteurs and Birds of Avalon. Matt cooked battered and fried whole radishes, handmade cous cous and a fish stew with blackened capers and nettle salsa verde. Jack White was a bit wary of the nettles. He asked for a steak."
