Catch on the Ave - Chef Eric Reid's Seafood and Craft Cocktails on Mount Vernon Avenue, Del Ray - Closed

Recommended Posts

I swear I made a previous thread for Catch on the Ave, but I can't find it.  We have gone twice now- once with BIL and SIL, and once with my Mom.  I can't remember what we all had the first time we went, but we liked it enough to go back!  I remember they had good cocktails.  On the last visit, Hubby had fish tacos.  They had soft shells, and I asked if I could have them on a sandwich.  They had run a special earlier that week with a pimento cheese/ softshell sandwich, so I go that.  This would have been better with less pimento cheese, to be honest, I love soft shells and should have protested more and seen if I could have just gotten a more plain sandwich.  I expect this sandwich was because a lot of people find soft shells a little more creepy than I do.  It was fine, it was just perhaps a little over-decadent and you lost the crab flavor.  Mom had the lobster salad which she said was really good.  This is a nice little neighborhood spot with above average food for Del Ray.  We like the ability to get something a little fancier or a little more causal for dinner, and they have a nice beverage list, and you can generally get in.

Thank you so much for coming in! You are correct about the pimento cheese. Some people get geeked out about softies, so I added the cheese to familiarize guests. Whenever I have them in please feel free to ask about a sandwich the way you would like it. I’ve got no problem making that happen.
