Last night I enjoyed 801 Fish as a part of Clayton Restaurant Week, it was my first time at this restaurant (though I blogged about it opening a few months ago and had been eager to try it.) 801 Fish is the sister restaurant of 801 Chophouse across the street. Both of these restaurants are owned by the 801 Restaurant Group, based out of Des Moines, Iowa. The space is sophisticated and unique, with plenty of open space. It is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions, business entertainment, or a night out with friends to enjoy fresh fish.
Did you know that all the fish and seafood is brought in daily. When the fish reaches your plate just know that it was in the water a mere 36 hours ago. I enjoyed the oysters- both grilled and raw as well as a red snapper entree that was served Creole style with grits and shrimp. It. Was. DELICIOUS.
Enjoy a fun holiday tour in the oldest structure in the City of Clayton!
