Good seafood isn't always easy to find in this landlocked state, but that might be about to change with the addition of Desert Fish (4214 Central). The restaurant's soft opening tonight features specials like wild sockeye cedar-plank salmon ($18) and Alaskan halibut fish and chips ($10), not to mention a well-stocked oyster bar. A reggae band straight from Jamaica is also on tonight's menu.
Owner Peter Martin says his restaurant is dedicated to freshness. "All our seafood was literally flown in this morning," Martin says.
Hours this weekend are Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Regular hours start Monday. Desert Fish is stocked with a full bar.
