We recently ate at the newest restaurant in Williamsburg, Fat Tuna. Co-Owned by two remarkable men, Victor Minichiello the brains behind Sal's by Victor, and Chef Ken Brown the talent in the kitchen, Fat Tuna offers a welcoming atmosphere with food to melt into your mouths.
We started with the Fat Tuna Sesame Fresh Ahi Tuna. It was raw the way we like it and the sauce served for dipping was delicious. Joe dined from the Raw Bar and enjoyed Oysters on the Half Shell. We also crunched on the calamari with it's spicy sauce.
For our main course, I chose the Shrimp Po-Boy in which I love to see on a menu. For some reason when we moved to Virginia I never saw a Shrimp Po-Boy on the menu. I could find an Oyster Po-Boy but never a Shrimp Po-Boy but today that has changed. The Shrimp Po-Boy from Fat Tuna is served buttery, grilled roll with lettuce, tomato with a special sauce not to mayonnaisey.
Douglas enjoyed the Fried Seafood Platter with Shrimp, Scallops, Flounder and a Crab Cake. You will not walk away from this selection hungry. The batter is light and doesn't cake up on the seafood. Enjoy the mac n' cheese and don't think about the calories.
The Williamsburg Style Shrimp N' Grits is a perfect selection with jumbo shrimp in buttery grits. Mmmmm.... From the specials menu, one of the most interesting meals was delivered to our table. In a large pot with a top filled to the brim with crab legs, shrimp, scallops and more was than so tasty I would suggest it for your meal. You might be able to share it too.
We enjoyed Fat Tuna and will be back. Nice to have a seafood restaurant in The Burg that isn't too expensive and owned by locals!
