The Bluefin restaurant and fish market is currently building out its Centre Street space, and we've got an update on the menu and other fishy details.
"We will be a fish market foremost and you will also be able to order at the counter and eat at a table," said owner Jason Tucker to Jamaica Plain News. "So far the menu looks like oysters, chowders, lobster rolls, ceviches, poke bowls -- pretty casual and fresh food."
Many people may recognize Tucker from being the farmers market manager for Reds Best Seafood which brings seafood to the JP Farmers Market behind Bank of American on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Tucker said there will be 18 seats for dine-in service. Tucker said there is no plan for a liquor license at this time.
The menu will feature local and seasonal fresh fish, just like they do at the farmers market. There will also be tinned fish and packaged food to take home.
The plan is for the business to open early this year at 660 Centre St.
"This space will grant us the opportunity to not only offer a wide variety of local seafood species for home, but expand access to high quality takeout seafood via farmers markets, pop-up opportunities, and catering with a larger and better equipped kitchen space," wrote Tucker on Bluefin's NuMarket crowdfunding campaign page.
Tucker said people who chip in will receive 120% back in store credit, which can also be used at the farmers markets.
