This is what I tweeted after I ate here: 'Dear Tacoma. Just ate the best Halibut I ever ate at Duke's Chowder House. Please send wheelbarrow. I need to get back to my hotel'
Here's what I told the bartender when she asked me how it tasted - 'I want to go in a corner and spend time with it alone.' She made me repeat it, then raised her eyebrows. "I've never heard that before," she said. "You must like it."
But stop serving potatoes with the fish. Do rice or something, not potatoes. No one ate them, they just threw them away. IT's too heavy for the fish. If you're trying to fill up the plate, do something else.
I also had the Pernod Lobster Chowder. I had high hopes, and it tasted great, but it was one note--- flat I expected a Northwestern version of the Atlantic Seaboard She-crab Soup, but it wasn't as tasty or as complex. Still, I want to go back because there are so many great looking dishes there. And next time, I'll ask them to hold the taters.
But thanks Duke, for the Halibut.
