Burque Seafood Hub Opens Tonight

Flickr user Swamibu

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.

  • Holy crow, 5 kinds of oysters!  [ Sat Dec 11 2010 12:36 AM ]

    Pretty sure that's a first for NM.

    This restaurant is in the old Sonny's bar building, but it has been entirely transformed. I was blown away by the fresh oyster selection, friendly service and overall vibe.

    I still miss Sonny's. It had "just the right amount of scum".

    I'll add this to my wish list of dinner dates. This sounds like a pescetarian's dream.
