It has been more than two years since we have been to Fishing With Dynamite mostly because of the location. My brother has been wanting to try this place specially for their crab cake for a while now. Since he was in town for my birthday, he treated us to brunch. As usual he was over ordering and I had to stop him. What was very refreshing was as our waitress heard me telling him about ordering too much, she suggested we get two crab cakes rather than three. Service was very professional unlike the night before at Ink. My brother told our waitress about my birthday dinner the night before and she not only wished me a happy birthday but when we received our dessert there was a candle also. Very touching; Other restaurant should learn that little things like that leaves a pleasant memory.

oysters
Kumamoto Oysters and Peruvian scallops
My brother loves his oyster and both the oyster and the scallops were sweet and very fresh. A great start.
ceviche
Rockfish and Shrimp Ceviche Buhkart Plums, Radish, Serrano, Cilantro, Avocado, Lime
He also loves his ceviche and enjoyed his selection. The ceviche was visually beautiful and tasted pretty good. We specially liked the plum touch.
crab cakes
Maryland Blue Crab Cake In-House Dill Pickle, Whole Grain Mustard Remoulade
The main reason we were here and thankfully the crab cake tasted as great as two years ago.
tacos
Yellowtail and Shrimp Tacos In-House Corn Tortillas, Guacamole, Salsa Verde, Cilantro
My husband and brother had the yellowtail tacos and I had the shrimp one. This was our least favorite dish. It was your typical tacos and nothing unique about it.
octopus
Grilled Octopus Cranberry Beans, Date Tomato Ragu, Preserved lemon, Olive Tapenade
The octopus had a great char, but I didn’t care for the sweet beans.
chocolate dessert
Valrhona Chocolate Mousse Raspberry Sorbet, Sea Salt, Pudwill Farm Raspberries
We finished with high marks. Our waitress assured me the chocolate mousse was a dark one and she was right. The raspberry sorbet almost tasted like my favorite one from Grom.
