Prejudices are bad. Convenient, but bad. Mississippi Fish Shack is a case in point. I find their blinding yellow facade garish and unappetizing. I held out for months before giving the place a shot. My first visit proved promising, even as they tested my patience. On my second trip my food came out within five minutes and was even better than the first…better catfish, I dare say, than Catfish Corner (not to mention the hush puppies). Crunchier and more aggressively-seasoned, the strips may not appeal to all. But it suited me well and is a worthy addition to our downtown food scene.
How great is it that each of the new restaurants downtown – MSF, Bleu, The Rome and Room 38 – are all, to varying degrees, good places to eat?
