20 Feet, Dallas, 11/25/16


Marc Cassel of Green Room fame started 20 Feet a few years ago and it hasn’t changed much since then. In a strip shopping center, next to a beer-burger joint, it serves a limited menu for lunch and dinner. It is a reasonably large dining room and they have added a plastic enclosed patio with additional dining. I spied A/C and heating units to make it usable year-round.  The mussels from his Green Room days are on the menu but most talk was about their fried fish so that’s what we tried.  It’s a restaurant where you line up at the counter, place your order, pay and then take a number to your table.  They bring your food out to you. There is a large supply of condiments for you to use as well a pitchers of water and tea for refills, however they were nice enough to come around and refill our glasses.

The basket comes with 3 pieces of fried cod, fried shrimp or oysters or combinations of them.  The cod blew away the oysters. A nice crispy, un-greasy coating wrapped the firm white fish. It is served with tartar sauce, red cocktail sauce and lemon wedges and a generous helping of skinny, crispy fries.  Some of the oysters had a fishy taste but worse was the gummy coating that completely smothered their delicateness.

We tried a piece of their key lime pie for dessert and it came with a nice dollop of whipped cream and a lovely graham cracker crust.  It was yummy.img_5891
