Blackened at Natty’s

Pescaterian Review:  Blackened Salmon on a Garden Salad.

Looking for a chill spot to sip and eat downtown on a gorgeous summer day?  Natty Greens’s is it.  Sunday I swung by there to whine down from the week and to soak in the gorgeous weather.  Natty’s is one of those spots that you can go to tuck away for a little bit.  It’s also a cool spot to visit if you want to sit outside and listen to the sounds of the city.

Question:  How was the food?

Here’s the thing pescaterians, sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bland.  I come here for their salad options because you can choose what ever salad combo that you want, and then add a protein.  I gave the garden salad a try a few times and from top to bottom, it lacks flavor.  The garden salad consist of:  A house mix with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and sunflower seeds.  I added the Salmon and asked for it blackened to get a better taste.

It didn’t taste bad but for someone like me who has soul food taste buds, it still lacked a lot of flavor.  I honestly think it was due to the combination of the garden salad because when I ordered the blackened salmon on the Cardinal it was delicious!  Imagine spinach, goat cheese, red onions, a piece of salmon drizzled with lemon vinaigrette and topped with strawberries.  Yes, it was like that.

The wine was straight.  The riesling that I ordered tasted more like a moscato but it had a nice apple aftertaste.  And I had two glasses that day so it served it’s purpose!

  • Ambiance:  laid back, casual
  • Good for:  Meet up with friends or to chill by yourself
