Much in life gets better with age. Wine, for example. A glass of young wine is called “grape juice”, and it’s not nearly so thrilling as a glass of chardonnay. Or cheese. Aged cheese has a sharpness and character you won’t find in a younger batch. People get better as they age, as well, refining as they grow wiser from experience. Know what doesn’t get better with age? Fish. Seafood’s one of those things you want to get fresh out of the sea. Navesink Fishery in Atlantic Highlands knows this. They serve some of the best and freshest seafood around! Find out for yourself at 1004 Highway 36.

Fishing for Compliments

Fresh seafood is one of life’s great pleasures. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of fish gussied up by a master chef, but there’s a simple culinary delight in eating freshly caught fish. It doesn’t take much more than heat to cook it through, a few basic spices, and perhaps some drawn butter or lemon juice to bring out the natural flavors.

Navesink Fishery believes in this simplicity. There’s plenty of fried or broiled seafood on the menu, offered with basic, homey side dishes. Flounder, shrimp, and scallops are all available. Or indulge in the ultimate seafood treat with a whole lobster, broiled or steamed. More complex offerings include grilled salmon dijonnaise, or a delectable, pan-roasted flounder almondine.
