7 seductive seafood dishes that will send your taste buds overboard

Columbus, I am not a cruel man. I can taunt you with delicious food and awesome meals, but that’s only because I want you to up your food game. I believe in you and want you to be the best food-obsessed child-adult you can be.

Now, that said, what’s going to happen next is just heartbreaking and I’m so sorry. I’m talking about mouth watering, stomach growling, getting angry at your cat for meowing too loudly, tormenting food. I’ve collected seven seafood dishes from seven different restaurants in the city that every fish lover should try once. So release the Kraken Columbus and let’s…wow, I almost got right into that pun, didn’t I? (Crackin’, hah, god I’m fine).

Although it almost shares the name of a truly awful TV laugh track, this popular Bonefish dish is actually pretty fantastic.

All of these flavors swim perfectly together like a kind of synchronized swimming routine straight out of Million Dollar Mermaid. (Sigh) I miss Esther Williams movies.

These little guys are so popular they take up an entire section of their menu. And yes, the relationship between the name of the restaurant and their famous oysters has correct came to mind.

Of course, I had to add at least one sushi place to the list. Kooma’s sushi is great too, but their seafood plate is shark week material – a straight killer. Look what I did there? I… you know what, you’ll get it.

The Black Point – Tristan’s Cold Water Lobster Tail

If this one does not make you “humina, humina, humina”, check your pulse. Either you’re dead inside or you’re reading “humina” wrong. You see what I mean is the onomatopoeic expression for “hellooooo nurse!”

Right now, I bet you’re ready to draw, you’ve had enough and want to scream uncle. Well, too bad. Here’s some fried crab for you because I literally know no mercy. Boom.

Sure, it may look like someone speared a Gyrados and served it on a plate, but believe me, it’s the right thing and you’re going to resent it.
