The Top 100 List: #62 Strings’ Cashew Crusted Sea Bass


Strings’ “Cashew Crusted Sea Bass”

Location: 17th st

Rating: 8.9 (out of 10)

Price: $35

The Skinny: I’ve driven past Strings many, many times without a second thought to try it.  Something about the 80’s neon and colors that never called out to me, I guess.  But being on the list, I had to give it a go – and I’m glad I did.  In yet another example of not judging a book by its cover, Strings’ Sea Bass dish was inventive, elegant, and utterly delicious.

Imagine tender soft panels of chilean sea bass, dipped in vanilla cream sauce.  Now add just a streak of cranberry puree for color and acid.  It was an incredible symphony of flavors in each bite.  At $35, it goddamn better be.  The surrounding couscous soaked up the vanilla sauce like it should and added some texture, but the remaining veggies were slightly uninspired.  Still one of the better dishes I’ve had on the whole list.  Highly recommended.
