Donald Link got inspired by open-fire cooking during a trip to Uruguay and had wanted to add a seafood place to his portfolio. So he and his partners renovated an old coffee roaster operation, installed a custom-made wood-burning grill that makes charcoal from oak and pecan, and began serving rustic fish dishes that nod to South Louisiana. The preparations are mostly simple — addictive fried bread with sea salt, battered fish sticks, and shrimp rolls — though some have twists. Grilled corn on the cob comes with white barbecue sauce, and catfish arrive in a chili broth accompanied by pickled greens. Whole roasted gulf fish for the table is the reason to visit. Redfish, snapper, pompano and grouper are frequent options, and their prices vary daily, though a redfish that serves four goes for about $45.
