Saturday night, before the Symphony concert at Music Hall, we once again went to "The Anchor" 1401 Race St. (513) 421-8111. They do not take reservations but the restaurant, at this point has tables available. We get there between 6 and 6:15 PM.
That night the Mid-Point Music Festival was in full swing across the street, in Washington Park, but the restaurant had seating easily available. There is both inside and outside seating.
The crowd had grown for the week before and the service and handling had also improved. They are in the learning curve and are doing a good job of coping.
Marilyn and I split a very good Caesar salad, with smoked trout strips substituting for anchovies and a "whole fish of the day, Red Snapper. The later was prepared Thai style and I am at a loss to describe it's preparation in detail, although the fish was deep fried, fillet table side, and had a pinapple salsa and lemon flavored finish. We added an order of the excellent Vidalia Onionn rings. Total check including drinks and coffee was $53.25.
We also carried in from the "Oriental-Wok" Regency, over the weekend. All very good food cooked and packed perfectly. I am qquickly coming to the conclusion the several of the Chinese restaurants are the very best place to order fish. They seem to do "flat" fish better than most.
