Enjoy the sea's most abundant eatable with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fried seafood and sandwiches at City Fish and More on State Avenue.
City Fish and More serves a menu of crispy, deep-fried fish in a casual, semi-fast-food atmosphere. Diners can feast on bone-in whole catfish or ask chefs to batter and bread boneless tilapia, snapper, and basa in a special blend of seasonings that yield a mild yet spicy flavor and a golden-brown coat of armor. Fish can be ordered in half-pound ($5.99–$6.49), three-quarter-pound ($9.99–$11.49), and one-pound ($11.99–$14.99) servings, based on the size of your appetite. Three-quarter-pound and one-pound fish orders come sidekicked with custom accouterments such as hush puppies, fried okra, or potato salad. Crustacean connoisseurs can pop a half-pound of boiled shrimp ($8.99) or eight jumbo fried shrimp ($9.99). City Fish also serves fare hailing from terra firma such as chicken tenders ($6.99) and italian steak sandwiches ($4.99). These platters can be partnered with a spattering of more than 25 sides, including zucchini stix ($2.79), onion rings ($2.79), and corn on the cob ($1.09).
