I can’t even remember how I heard about this place, but it was well worth the drive over to Flemington to check out Blue Fish Grill. It made for a lovely Sunday excursion (with shopping at Turntable Junction, too), and the lunch a friend and I enjoyed was a winner.
Owners Stacy and Kelly Casanova came from California, so they get the concept of fresh and casual food. The fish taco (tilapia) was grilled over a wood fire (oak and citrus). That woodsy smoky flavor really came through. The tacos were dressed with avocado salsa and piled with cabbage slaw. The seasoned fries were good, too. My friend’s fish (pollock) and chips also won raves (“so light!”), as did the excellent house made tartar sauce. The house salad with Napa cabbage, crispy wontons, mango, and pecans was also pretty tasty. This is a very casual spot, food comes on disposables, etc. Prices are extremely gentle, with maybe two items over $10 (butterfish and ahi tuna). The place reminds me Princeton’s beloved (including by yours truly) Blue Point Grill, taken down several notches to be more casual and less pricey. If you plopped this place down in Princeton, or, better yet, right on the university campus, there’d be a stampede!
