CoolFish earned a three-star rating in 2000, when the concept and the courses were refreshing and new. It's now a very reliable spot for lunch and dinner.
The look definitely hasn't changed. CoolFish manages to thrive in a windowless space in the North Shore Atrium office building.
Flatbreads remain good when shared over drinks while you go through the menu. Try the one with Taleggio. Then: cornmeal-crusted fried oysters, crunchy and sweet, atop spicy avocado. And Campanelli prepares an excellent, cinnamon-chipotle-marinated, double-cut pork chop with sweet potatoes.
An upside-down apple tart that's a tasty cousin of tarte Tatin has maintained its appeal. Go for the Schaudel staple, the "chocolate bag" -- a stylized sundae, with dark chocolate molded into the slightly crinkly, rectangular shape of a bag, filled with vanilla ice cream, bananas, caramel and more.
