Restaurant Review: Sellfish

Sellfish was conceived as a gustatory tour of the aquatic world, and that shows in every fiber of the restaurant. The subtle aquamarine light dipping down on patrons and the pebbled wallpaper evoking clear rivers and beautiful riverbeds, all bolstered by soft rustling music creates an unique dining experience. The menu consists of exotic dishes,... Continue Reading →
