My friend Ken and I went to the Fish Market in Palo Alto to revisit old times. The Fish Market is 35 years old and my first meal there was almost that long ago. I've always liked it---high-quality seafood in a nice but unpretentious atmosphere. They also have a fish market that carries the same types of fish that are on the menu, but I've never used that option.
I continue to be a salmon nut so I had the mesquite-smoked wild salmon. Wild salmon has a darker, more interesting flesh and a more interesting texture. The fish was very well prepared, although I couldn't taste the mesquite. Unlike some fish establishments, they have a good selection of vegetable sides. The vegetable medley is what you'd expect but the tomatoes were a nice surprise and a great complement to the salmon.
