Arrrgh, Billy.... ever been to Portage Avenue?
The Captain's Table offers snacks, burgers, sandwiches,
pizzas and such, none of which I tried. Possibly some customers do come for
them, or possibly they exist mainly because the kitchen also services the bar
in the adjoining Stagger Inn. Me? I came for the English Style fish and chips
which it turned out, were not only good, but also another relative bargain.
The choices include pollock, halibut, haddock, cod and sole, most priced from
$7.45 to $10.95 for two pieces with fries and coleslaw there are also jumbo prawns,
either breaded or saut�ed in garlic butter, and breaded or battered shrimp, but
I confined my sampling to the classic cod and halibut
Both were flaky, sweet and tender, coated in a spectacularly good eggless
batter that was light, greaseless and crunchy, with an almost spiky surface.
The Chips - - a little mountain of them - are skinner then usual English way
but which, as it happens, is how I prefer them, and these are terrific
There's a satisfying seafood chowder with, as well as chunks of fish, several
pieces of shrimp, plus a rather limp cold shrimp draped over the edge of the
bowl. Unlike most chowders, it contained no potatoes, but also, unlike most had
no taste of flour in the milky broth. The included coleslaw is so-so but (and I
blush to confess it) I found a side of mushy peas ($1.24) truly comforting. I
can't predict the efficiency of the service (there were a few other customers
on my visit) but it was extremely pleasant.
