Fish Market Restaurant Southside
George Sarris likes to know where his food comes from. In the case of his olive oil brand, named after his hometown of Tsitalia, he personally knows the Greek families who grow the olives. As for his seafood, much of it is "caught" inside his restaurant—lobsters and even rainbow trout are all kept live in Fish Market's advanced tank system. Anything that he can't pluck from the water himself gets fetched from the coast by the restaurant's own trucks, dispatched twice weekly for maximum freshness. There's shrimp from the gulf and oysters from Louisiana, among others.
All of these ingredients come together on a menu of Mediterranean and Southern specialties. It's an unusual but tasty merger: po' boys share tables with Sicilian mussels, and crawfish etouffee sits beside Athenian-style grouper. Some dishes, like the fried snapper throats, are Fish Market signatures that are hard to find elsewhere in or around Birmingham. Others still are limited to the restaurant's Sunday menu, such as pork chops drizzled in a citrus marinade.
