If you love seafood, you know it’s best served when fresh and finely cooked. But how can you find a restaurant that only serves high-quality fish every time? The staff at New York’s Lolo's Seafood Shack explains what to look for and why it’s important to find a reputable establishment.
First, all seafood restaurants should have the proper storage to maintain fish, shrimp, and crab safely. Seek out reviews and results from past inspections online to ensure food safety measures are followed and no one has become sick from improper storage practices.
It’s best to look for longstanding, recognized seafood restaurants that know the places to purchase the best fish, regardless of price. Ask the manager about their sustainability practices, as well. If you can’t verify your fish was caught or raised without chemical-free practices, you may not be dealing with a reputable restaurant.
Seafood businesses should also have a wide variety of seasonal choices and specials on hand. If you never see a “catch of the day” on the menu or your server can’t provide you with a suitable selection when your favorite fish isn’t available, consider going elsewhere for fresh ingredients.
Additionally, the restaurant should demonstrate culinary experience to cook flavorful fish. Since these proteins must be carefully prepared to maintain taste and texture, restaurants with top chefs, like Lolo’s Seafood Shack, cook a delectable meal every time.
