Chennai gets its best seafood from Manhattan

When one enters the Manhattan Fish Market in Mylapore one immediately realises there is a lot of food happening. The decor is made up off bright lights, casual yet stylish look.

Combination flooring, with wood and tiles, make it thoughtfully planned. Movable tables, with wooden chairs painted black and white complete the seating. Vertical wood slats meet horizontal ones on the ceiling. The place is simple yet interesting and the kitchen, busy.

Despite all the bombastic Manhattan branding, the first outlet opened in Malaysia. After more than 50 outlets in various parts of the world, the restaurant chain opened its first in India at Chennai.

Even though it’s a fish market, 10 per cent of menu is vegetarian. They have country-fried mushroom, baby corn fritters, cream of tomato and mushroom soup, vegetable olio and creamy mushroom pasta appeal to them.

The grilled chicken breast, dusted with dry parsley and their signature spices isn’t the most exciting and all you taste is an explosion of fieryness. The herbed rice, with the familiar flavour of garlic, however, is an absolute delight.

The restaurant takes great pride in their sauces that are made in-house. Garlic herb sauce is the star, and as a result, finds itself in most of the dishes.

The platter is like a crowded sea of fish. It arrives amidst much fanfare. The friend grins like a Cheshire cat, claps and takes numerous photos of the diva; and in this one-off case, it’s the food and not me.

The prawns are dramatically flamed. Batter-fried calamari (squid), mussels and filet of dory fish are the others on the platter. Golden brown and crunchy, they are addictive and filling.

At The Manhattan Fish Market, they offer five styles of cooking for you to choose from – poached, grilled, baked, flamed and fried.

The desert are a delight. The Manhattan mud pie is cold creamy, chocolaty, nutty stuff, on a thin cookie base which the chef’s say is a secret recipe.


About The Manhattan Fish Market

The Manhattan Fish Market is a concept that has more than 180 years of history in the making. Its early beginning can be traced backed to the Manhattan fish market on Fulton Street which has greeted the dawn from its location in Manhattan under the Brooklyn Bridge, with the freshest seafood. Seafood restaurants were lined along the Fulton Street offering the freshest catch from the Manhattan fish market. It is this scene that stirred the minds of three young entrepreneurs who decided to recreate the concept in the in The Manhattan Fish Market chain of restaurants.

The Manhattan Fish Market specializes in American style seafood. Its menu ranges from Fish & Chips to Garlic Butter Mussels, including the legendary Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter. It has since created a strong following by having most of its dishes served in a skillet. The Manhattan Fish Market has grown over the years globally, with outlets opening in Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Indonesia.
