I said I’d order the Chilean Sea Bass. He said it’s so good, I’ll think about it the next day… That sort of creeped me out, but I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been to STEEL many times. Never tried the Chilean Sea Bass. Well, let me tell you, it is not like any other Sea Bass I’ve had before. It starts off as a feast for the eyes, as it comes with this glorious sizzling caramelized marinade on top, lying peacefully on a bed of steamed asparagus and brown rice (you can also have it on white or fried rice if you prefer). Then, with just one tip of my chopsticks, I took in one flake of the fish, and indulged in its melty airy sweet-tanginess. I am not sure if the miso-sake marinade that holds this piece of heavenly taste for 12 to 24 hours, does the trick, or the way the chef reportedly pan-sears, then oven-roasts it to lock in the flavor, but it’s definitely an experience you don’t want to leave out of your bucket list.. if you are a foodie that is.
Goes great with a cup of their fabulous flowering white tea in a glass pot.
Miles is a wonderful host, and never forgets a face. Ever since the first time I went for my lunch there, he’s been attentive, friendly and absolutely delightful!
If you are in the Atlanta area, you should definitely look STEEL up and visit. They also have great sushi and are a perfect location for happy hour drinks, or other evening gatherings. Lovely lovely place.
