Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
Crystal City's Restaurant Mez at the Crystal Gateway Marriott has joined with a Co-Op of fishermen with the Honolulu Fish Company, to present guests with a special seafood dinner menu of newly caught Hawaiian fish, fresh off the straights of Maui. All of the sashimi grade fish are caught by hook or line, sustainable and eco-friendly, instead of nets and trawls, which can be harmful to the environment.
Now through October, Restaurant Mez will be offering a sashimi seafood catch of the day special that includes: Opaka paka, Opah, Uku, Kea kea, Monchong, Mero filet, Ono and Mahi Mahi.
The selection of fish at this Arlington seafood restaurant changes daily depending on what is caught; each day three or four types of fish are featured. Customers will have a choice of preparation: grilled, pan-seared, oven roasted, lightly breaded pan-fried and poached; and a choice of flavor profiles of papaya-mango relish, Asian slaw, Fuji apple-ginger chutney, chipotle-lime honey butter and lemongrass blackened seasonings. The entrees are offered at a promotional price from $26 - $29 and include a choice of two side dishes. To compliment these exceptional seafood dishes, Restaurant Mez offers wine pairings and flights of red and white wines.
"We are featuring a unique dinner menu to experience Hawaiian fish with an array of fresh flavors," said David Creamer, chef de cuisine, Restaurant Mez. "Brought to the dock, off the hook, and shipped via air directly to our hotel within hours, each day brings a new catch and different fish."
