North Shore diners and anyone looking to take a mini, food-focused road trip – chef Jason Santos’ new Marblehead restaurant, B&B Fish, is now open for business. His fourth endeavor (sister to Buttermilk & Bourbon, Citrus & Salt and Abby Lane), B&B Fish, located at 195 Pleasant Street, is a sleek but casual culinary homage to New England’s classic clam shack but with a bit of a whimsy and some southern flair.
Working with his longtime Buttermilk & Bourbon chef, Jeff DeCandia, Santos has come up with a menu that gives all those classic summertime seaside favorites – lobster rolls, fried clams, fish and chips – their due…and then some. Guests can mix and max flavors with a wide array of sauces (tarragon tartar, crystal cocktail, Creole remoulade and white bbq) and augment their meal with sides like clam chowder, biscuits, Mexican street corn, black truffle parmesan fries and Vidalia onion rings. There’ll be sweets like beignets, fried oreos, soft-serve cones and a variety of creative ice cream sundaes.
The shoreline spot is open every day from 11:00am-7:00pm (‘til 8:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays), for grab-and-go take-out counter-service with limited seating inside and out on their patio. They’ll have delivery, too. Take a peek at the menu and start mapping out your route to Marblehead.
