Already promising the the “best fish and chips on the planet,” Catchers Fish House debuts this weekend and encourages discerning fried food fans to put their “taste buds to the test.”
Located in the New Orleans Square section of the eastside’s Commercial Center, new signage and murals make the ground floor space easy to spot, sitting on the far opposite side of the retail hub from the dormant Lotus of Siam.
Set to open on June 1, future opening hours for the counter-service restaurant will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
Working with a family recipe imported from California, Catchers has chosen red snapper and catfish as its specialty ingredients.
On the early menu, a series of “quick bites” priced at $4.99, featuring popcorn chicken, or shrimp, “lollipop chicken wings,” and “shrimp on a stick.” The $12.99 baskets are served with fries, coleslaw, a drink, and a choice of catfish, snapper, soft shell crab, or jumbo shrimp.
A $13.99 Nashville hot chicken creation joins a shrimp po’ boy on the roster of sandwiches. Also available, tacos, salads, and “side kicks,” of “South of the Border Corn,” “lime rice,” mac and cheese. and a “loaded potato cup.”
Catchers Fish House, 900 E. Karen Ave., Suite D112, 702-844-8200. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
