The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colourful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of dinner, or for $7 get $15 worth of lunch at Pelican Fishery & Grill on Bank Street. What began as a comprehensive fish market in 1978 has morphed into a deep-sea eatery with lunch and dinner menus chock full of homemade sea eats and sides. With a focus on high-quality wild and sustainable seafood, the chefs at Pelican Fishery & Grill cook up a variety of aquatic delights using the freshest fish from each of the day’s four deliveries dropped off by career-changing storks. Lunch fare includes lighter dishes such as the grilled fish sandwich topped with chipotle mayonnaise ($11), and dinnertime cuisine gets hot and heavy with entrees such as the bouillabaisse ($26), a savoury stew of fish, shellfish, shrimp, and lobster bobbing in a warm broth. The interior’s cool blues hues are characteristic of Picasso underwater period and brightly coloured artwork is a feast for diner’s eyes.
- It's hard to get fresh sea food in the city where there is no ocean. So it's important to rely on business' [sic] such as this one to supply us with the seafood we deserve! – Chantal Sarkisian, Urbanspoon
- A good restaurant starts and ends with the quality of the service. At the Pelican Grill it was very knowledgeable, very friendly in a professional way, they talk to you as if they are sharing your dining experience. – DineWineTraveler, TripAdvisor
Pelican Fishery & Grill
At Pelican Fishery & Grill, “the walls serve as a gallery for humorous shots of the owners, their families and the rest of the staff posing with seafood,” according to the Rachelle Eats Food blog, but the staff is serious about sustainably sourced fresh seafood. That’s why they stock the icy shelves of their fishery and the sizzling plates of their eatery with wild fish delivered in four shipments throughout the day. Lobster, mussels, scallops, and fish serve as the centrepieces of both gluten-free and standard menu items that can also be eaten at home or in the 3-D infospace inside your computer, thanks to the store section of Pelican Fishery.
