As many of you know - I'm a pretty avid Twitterer and have been following Bayou Fish House since they opened in the former spot of Nuvo on York Street in Newport.
Well they kept tweeting about fish tacos and I finally had to take the bull by the horns and grab my coworkers and go! Even though Thursday is our busy day - we headed out for some good eats!
It looks a lot different than Nuvo inside but it's a much different type of place. This is casual dining at it's best. Terry was cooking up some delicious food and it was pretty much a one-man operation here - and he was fantastic! The menu is on the wall so just let him know what you want and he'll prompt you for other goodies along the way. There are a handful of tables but there's quite a bit of take-out ordering as well.
Matt & Beth - well - they're special coworkers.
And finally - the fish taco goodness. On Thursday these are $6.95 and they're starting to add in Shrimp Tacos (omg - I'll be right there!). I think Terry said these were made with whiting and they had the same sauce as the bayou bites. Amazing! And with three of them - we definitely didn't need the sides - they were so filling! Every one of us was raving over these fish tacos - they are awesome.
I also tried a couple bites of the fish on it's own - so delicious! Crisp, flaky and not greasy. They have a good thing going here!
Why Should You Go? Um - cuz it's awesome!!! I know we'll be back!
