As a result, seafood also seems to come with its own misconceptions due to the dining climate of our city, that it is either deep fried and dirt cheap, or exceptional but expensive. Love.fish aims to occupy the vacant sweet spot in between, a casual-but-chic restaurant that you could patron a few times a week, rather than only for special occasions.... Read More | Share it now!
