Fish n Sip: BYOB, Cheap and Delicious
The salty and fishy smell in the air starts to get to your head after a full, or even partial, day at the beach. So it’s only natural to crave (and appropriate to an almost cliche level) to crave fish and chips when you’re near an ocean. The problem is, beach restaurants know how you think, and attack your wallet. I was once in Greenport, Long Island, and a restaurant was charging $20 for a fish and chips. They weren’t even made from shark or any usual fish! It was just cod or halibut! So instead of falling for their trap, get your grimy, sand covered self to a train and go to Fish n Sip in Prospect Heights.
As the name suggests, they specialize in fish. But they’re broke-ass friendly. Most of the fish entrees are less than $12. The fish and chips are damn tasty and cost about $8, and you get your choice of flounder, whiting or tilapia. They also bring you the best selection of dipping sauces for your fries–malt vinegar, ketchup and this unidentified chipotleish sauce. The rest of the menu is Mediterranean dishes, like panini’s, pastas and sandwiches, that are also moderately priced. And grab a bottle of two buck Chuck on the way, Fish n Sip is BYOB!
If you go, make sure to check out the mural in the bathroom. There is a painting of an octopus holding a roll of toilet paper, just waiting to taunt you if you run out of the real thing.
