This is food with a story, food with tradition, Britain's favourite dish and certainly the most iconic, first served back in the 1860's. Some credit a northern chap named John Lees for selling fish and chips out of a wooden hut in Mosely market in industrial Lancashire, others claim the first "fish n chip" shop was opened by a Jewish immigrant, Joseph Malin within the sound of Bow Bells in East London around 1860.
"Seaside in the city"
without the seagulls!
Fast forward to 2019 and Nick and Kelli are back in town after 15 years living by the sea in beautiful Cornwall, South West England raising their family and running a boutique hotel and a couple of restaurants along the way! They are now keen to bring a classic British experience to Dallas, a little "seaside in the city" you might say!
Our fish will be sourced and sustainably caught MSC (Marine Stewardship Certified) in the deepest coldest waters of Alaska and/or Atlantic oceans. It will be of the highest possible quality, served with hand cut proper chips alongside classic chip shops treats like mushy peas, curry sauce, pickled stuff, malt vinegar and English sea salt.
We will serve clean, pure unadulterated core ingredients with no added processing. Fish and chips really is one of the last remaining abundant wild foods.
Expect terrific fish and chips as our headline feature, along with some other innovative fish and shellfish dishes plus daily specials, a great beverage programme, all offered at a sensible price point in fun surroundings with relaxed counter service. No need for reservations.
Our beverage service will feature plenty of fizz including champagne, sparkling wine, craft beer and cider plus old school sodas including unique modern British wines and soft drinks.
We will create a unique look for Fish & Fizz, one that evokes memories of the seaside, expect nautical colours, reclaimed wooden tables made from old fishing boats, memories of yesteryear at the seaside complete with beach huts, unusual fixtures and fittings all mixed in with a splash of city shabby chic. We want the look and design to connect our guests with our story, to put them in the right frame of mind for a great experience and to enjoy a little bit of "seaside in the city", without the seagulls!
