The deets: Lunch at Woodhouse Fish Company on Fillmore.
It was a toss up between here or wood oven pizza down the street for lunch. (I think it was the possibility of a lobster roll that gave WFC a slight edge).We went for the seafood –a nice variety that included the aforementioned lobster roll, cioppino, soft-shell crab, Dungeness crab (not shown) and oysters on the half shell.
I'd go back for the lobster roll, a succulent, meaty treat, something I’ve experienced somewhat later in life, but appreciate and enjoy like I’ve been eating it forever.
But next time I'd save some room to try the clam chowder, which looked amazing.
Tips and/or tricks? It’s kind of a small place, but you can sit at the bar/counter if all the tables are taken. Also, they have $1 happy hour oysters if you’re in the area on a Tuesday.
I left thinking about how $18 for a small sandwich sounds like a lot, but for luscious chunks of lobster, a tender buttery roll, and a moment that takes you to summer and the sea, no matter where you are, it's well worth it.
