Fodor's Expert Review BlackSalt Fish Market & Restaurant

$$$ Upper Northwest Seafood

Just beyond Georgetown in the residential neighborhood of Palisades, BlackSalt is part fish market, part gossipy neighborhood hangout, part swanky restaurant. Fish offerings dominate, and vary from classics like oysters Rockefeller and fried Ipswich clams to more-offbeat fixings like cocoa-spiced big-eye tuna and a butterscotch pot de crème for dessert. The place can get crowded and loud, and reservations are often de rigueur for weekends. Regulars consider a meal at the bar a good fallback—especially for brioche French toast during the out-of-this-world brunch.
